The Issue: Expenses of Fostering Dogs or Puppies
Foster families for XOXO Rescue, Inc. volunteer to care for dogs and puppies saved from high-kill shelters and typically cover the costs of pet supplies. Along with dog food and bowls, fosters must often purchase flea and tick treatments, shampoo, puppy pads, and toys, since many of these dogs are scared, dirty, and covered in fleas.
The Campaign: Distributing Supply Kits to Fosters
If 40 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then XOXO Pet Rescue, Inc. can distribute 10 foster kits to help care for rescued dogs. The kits include items such as collars, food, leashes, toys, flea and tick treatments, and food bowls. Supplying fosters with these kits helps limit their out-of-pocket expenses, allowing them to take in more rescued animals. Each additional $40 raised will purchase another foster kit.
XOXO Pet Rescue, Inc.
An all-volunteer, foster-based rescue, XOXO Pet Rescue, Inc. aims to save as many puppies and dogs as possible and find them loving, permanent homes. Fosters throughout the Tidewater area care for rescued dogs until they can be put up for permanent adoption. Although the rescue primarily cares for pups, volunteers also work to find homes for other furry or feathered friends in need of a home.
