Ways You Can Help


The single biggest way you can help a MAGSR dog

Adopting is a lifelong commitment that can change the life of a MAGSR dog. It will change your life too. If you are ready to add a new family member and do all that it take to provide a safe, loving home to a dog in need, fill out an adoption application now.


For every dog we bring into the rescue, even after the adoption fee, we spend more than $300!

The average vet fees, including heartworm and flea/tick prevention, amount to approximately $145. If we have to kennel the dog for a month, that's another $600. Less the average adoption fee of $335 leaves MAGSR in the hole over $300 for every dog. This doesn't even take into account the dogs that come to us needing spay/neuter surgeries, or with health problems, or the dogs we don't place right away.


How can you help? Two ways: 

  • First, open your heart and your home to a foster dog. We'll work closely with you to find the right dog for your specific situation (existing dog, cat, small children). Every dog in Foster saves the Rescue $600 each month.  

  • Second, if you can't foster a dog, please sponsor one. We have several plans to choose from.
