Why Sponsor with TGLBR?
We all know we cannot adopt every dog who pulls on our heartstrings, but we can still make a profound difference on animals in need. Our bulldog sponsorship program allows you to make a tax-deductible donation which will support one of our special foster pets!
Many of our rescued dogs have veterinary expenses that exceed the amount of their adoption fees. Your contribution will assist in offsetting these costs and ensure that we can continue to save more bulldogs going forward! Sponsorship directly supports the particular dog of your choosing which means your contribution will not be allocated to other program funds.
What Do You Get Out of Sponsoring?
Even though you're not adopting, you still receive the joy of knowing you helped provide care for the animal(s) you choose to sponsor. Because of generous people like you, The Good Life Bulldog Rescues can continue to save bulldogs who may otherwise be euthanized, neglected, or abused. Upon your request, we are happy to send you any updates on the dogs you sponsor so you can learn about your impact firsthand!
Ways to Sponsor
As a sponsor, you can establish recurring monthly donations that will help different bulldogs throughout the year, or you can make a one-time contribution. Once you've decided you want to sponsor a bulldog, visit the animal you want to sponsor below and then click the "Sponsor" button. Once there, you will be able to choose the amount of your sponsorship and designate one-time or recurring payments. If you select a recurring payment, we will notify you if the bulldog you have selected to sponsor gets adopted so you can then decide how you would like your monthly donation be used.
We ask for a minimum of $10 to sponsor any dog and you can sponsor as many dogs as you would like. Please specify in the comments if you would like your name listed as a sponsor under your chosen dog, if you would like updates and any message you would like to include for them as well!
Sponsor a Bully Welcome Bag
The Bully Welcome Bag includes all of the essentials that any dog that is new to TGLBR will need to get settled. Many of these dogs come to us with nothing, no toys, no beds and certainly no monthly preventative medications. Your $50 sponsorship will provide each new dog with a blanket, a leash and harness, toys and a month supply of heartworm and flea/tick preventative. Our goal is to help each dog become comfortable in his/her foster homes as soon as possible and these items really do help.
Curious Where Your Donations Go?
All donations from our supporters are used for veterinary care, food and supplies for the dogs being fostered in the rescue. Here is a quick summary of the typical costs associated with the intake of a healthy, new dog:
Routine Spay: $100-120
Routine Neuter: $80-90
Harness & Leash: $30+
Food: $50/bag (depending on diet)
Wipes for wrinkles, paws and nose: $10-15
Vet Visit: $19
Heartworm Test: $21
Heartworm and Flea Medication: $5-10/month
Dogs with any existing medical conditions like cherry eye, entropian, corkscrew tail, ear infections and/or allergies carry additional veterinary costs which quickly add up. We also need crates for fosters, blankets and towels and cleaning supplies. We need your support to make sure we can continue to help them all! Thank you!
All of the dogs (and their staff) thank you for your support, we couldn't do this without your help!
