The Cost of Rescuing a Dog

Rescuing a dog runs between $200 and $600.  Many of the dogs that we get into MARS have never been to a vet.  They need to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.  Often they require dental procedures.  Occasionally, we get in one that needs major surgery.  Our adoption fees do not cover the cost of food and vet care.  We rely on the generosity of our friends and supporters to help provide the quality of care that our foster dogs deserve.


MARS is a non-profit tax-exempt charitable organization. Contributions to MARS are tax deductible in accordance with the US tax code for 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. You can donate using your PayPal account or the major credit cards.  Tax ID 83-0376828.


You can help support Mini Aussies by purchasing dog-themed jewelry, magnets, customized collar ID tags, T-shirts, and other items from our MARS e-shop. All profits go to support our foster dogs. We often have specials, and we frequently add new items, so check us occasionally to see what we are offering. Click on MARS e-shop to go directly to our e-shop.
