Donations – why do we need them?
Although Project POOCH rents kennel space at a state facility, we do not receive government funding so individual support is essential to our program. Any donation, no matter how small, makes a big difference!
In 2013, Project POOCH spent approximately $2,630 on dog food, $2,000 on
trainer fees, and $6,350 on veterinary bills. These are just a few of our major
expenses and don't include administrative costs, facility costs, costs for dog
and youth supplies (such as jackets for the youth, dog collars/leashes/bowls/
crates/blankets/jackets etc.), cleaning/grooming expenses or transportation
costs. Spaying and neutering all the dogs is our major expense.
Project POOCH, Inc. is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, Tax ID # 93-1252054 – your donation is tax-deductible.
