Attention Husky & Malamute Friends
Greetings Norsledders and Northern Breed lovers worldwide – If you follow Norsled on our Facebook page, our website, or my Facebook page, you know the amazing work we do saving and rehabbing beautiful huskies and malamutes. In the recent past we have handled broken legs (which cost $7000 to repair), amputated legs, heartworm treatments (many hundreds of dollars), nerve damaged feet ($5000), pulmonary issues amid numerous other huskies totally worth saving and bringing back to health.
We charge only $400 for an adoption fee for each dog. In addition to any and all special work, we also make sure every health issue is cared for, and our dogs are neutered/spayed, completely up to date on all shots, microchipped, heartworm tested, bathed and groomed and, in general, have the best possible care. All of this costs more money than we are able to recover through the adoption fees. We do not come close to breaking even. We do not want to raise our adoption fees, we aren’t interested in making a lot of money, and we continue to reach out to many organizations who can help, but we primarily depend on individual donations to continue saving the dogs.
An option to support NorSled without the huge impact on your budget of a one-time donation, although those are wonderful as well, is to consider allocating a regular monthly donation via PayPal – your bank takes a certain amount out of your balance each month, effortlessly. We have numerous folks doing this program. It is painless, you don’t have to think about it, and it gives us a monthly income to depend on. Go to www.norsled.org and click on any “subscribe” button. From there you can designate the amount you want to donate monthly to our medical care fund.
Thank you to those of you already donating monthly. Much appreciated.
