Description
In October of 2020, FDR was also asked to assist with some dogs from Texas that were needing rescue. Some of these dogs had not received any medical attention or proper vaccinations. FDR volunteers flew out to Texas, met the dogs, and paid for a transport to have them brought to our rescue in California. There were 24 dogs in total, 11 of these dogs were heartworm positive.
Budget
$20,000
Program Successes
All of the dogs from Texas rec'd all proper vaccinations and proper medical care. All of the Heartworm dogs stayed in foster care while going through a 5 month long treatment, 8 have since been adopted, and the additional HW dogs will be available for adoption soon.
Description
FDR will pull as many medical needs dogs as they are able. In these cases, we pay for all vetting to include - vaccines, dentals, surgeries, medication, spay/neuter, prescription foods, heartworm tests and follow up vet appointments.

In 2020, FDR successfully assisted with a hoarding case outside of our our county. We were contacted to assist with catching and taking 32 dogs into our rescue. We provided vetting for all dogs, and we were able to place all 32 of those dogs into wonderful permanent homes.

Description
Foothill Dog Rescue (FDR) provides free or low-cost spay/neuter to low-income families. The determination of the amount contributed by the community dog owner toward the spay/neuter is based on their ability to pay, and the breed of the dog. It never exceeds $100. The majority of the dogs that FDR serves in our Community Spay/Neuter Program are Pit Bulls and Chihuahua's.
Budget
$9,000
Program Successes
We average about 96 community spay/neuters per year. With increased funding for this program, FDR would be able to increase the number of free or low-cost spay/neuters provided to the community.
Description
Foothill Dog Rescue provides free food and other dog related items to community dog owners who are experiencing difficult circumstances. At any time, community members can come to our rescue office and request community dog food, collars, harnesses, leashes, dog beds, etc.
Budget
$5,000
Program Successes
If we have it available, we provide it. The requesters are not asked for details regarding their need. Our belief is if they are asking, they need it.
2020 has been even harder for people than previous years. We have a community bench set up outside for anyone that needs assistance, and we keep the bench full at all times with food. They do not have to request, or pay for the food, simply take what they need at the time.
