Cost of Rescue Animals
Crested's thread re the Million Paws Walk registration costs got me to thinking about the cost of purchasing dogs from shelters/pounds/rescue sites etc...
I know I have come across some rescue dogs that are in the vicinity of $450, and that honestly does dumbfound me.
I know times have changed, but does anyone on here (particularly those currently involved in rescue) have access to statistics over the past 20 years of the ratio of animals PTS? As in, is it going up or down?
