AB Herding Dog Rescue can provide food & some treats/cookies for our foster dogs. We can either arrange to get it to you or arrange it with our store of choice, Rascals Pet Supplies (NE Calgary), to have it available for you to pick up at your convenience. Purchases of food/treats must be authorized and will then be reimbursed.
We cannot authorize the purchase of any other supplies as we rely solely on donations for things such as:
· brushes, clippers, grooming aids (grooming appointments must be authorized)
· training aids (leashes, collars, harnesses, halties, muzzles, clickers, etc)
We generally have these things on hand so if the foster home needs them, arrangements can be made to get them to you.
We will not authorize the purchase of any classes, seminars, or clinics unless we have the funding to do so. Since our primary concern is appropriate vet care, food, shelter & good house manners, we must ensure that we allocate our limited resources to those necessities.
If the foster home is willing to cover the costs of necessary items &/or any other accessories, supplies or training, it is greatly appreciated. It would allow us to allocate funds to another dog in need. Any costs incurred by the foster home that is a benefit to the dog will be applied to the adoption fee, should the foster home decide to adopt the dog (see 'Adoptions' section).
