2019 Dogue de Bordeaux Rescue, Inc. Summary


In 2019 Dogue de Bordeaux Rescue, Inc. assisted 81 Dogue de Bordeaux from shelters and owner surrenders. Veterinarian costs of $45,600 were partially offset with $11,500 in adoption fees.  Social media fundraising efforts were expanded to support the high cost of veterinary care that included orthopedic surgeries, organ failure chiropractic care and hydrotherapy.

Several of the Dogues taken in were seniors or had serious health conditions that made them unadoptable. The veterinary costs for the 14 seniors and serious ill Dogues exceeded $10,000. There were also several donations of food and supplies donated directly to the foster homes of these dogs.

Dogue de Bordeaux Rescue, Inc. received nearly $52,000 in donation. An additional $10,500 in donations was paid to the veterinary offices directly.
