These vet cost estimates are only if an animal is healthy. If they arrive ill (which is often the case especially with stray, neglected or abused pets) AEAR usually spends quite a bit more to get them healthy and ready for adoption. As you can see, AEAR’s adoption donations barely help defray the costs we incur saving and rehoming pets from our community. This is, of course, not including any of our other expenses relating to our work such as food and housing for homeless pets, van maintenance and gas, and Humane Investigator tools just to name a few. By no means do our adoption donations cover all our expenses. We also have to rely on private donations to continue functioning. Additional donations are always appreciated and accepted. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Note: Each pet has different needs and may require more or less medical care depending on their specific health requirements. If you have any questions regarding a pet you are considering adopting, please contact us.
