So you want a new best friend in your life? Good for you! Opening your home and heart to a furry companion is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. Saving a life at the same time? Even better. Save a Life Every 11 seconds, an animal is euthanized in the United States. Approximately 3.7 million animals of all ages are put down annually. Our dogs and puppies all come from high kill animal shelters in Florida and Georgia. Taking in a Pixel Pup truly is the difference between life and death. Whether you are interested in providing temporary refuge through our foster program, or providing a furever home, opening your door to a Pixel Pup makes all the difference in the world. As one of our foster moms says, "I can't save them all, but I can save this one." Overcoming the Price Tag Consider that every Pixel pet (unless otherwise noted) comes spayed/neutered and up-to-date on shots. This can be a cost savings for you in the end, when you consider the typical veterinary fees for these services:
Spaying/neutering $150 - $300
Distemper vaccination $20 -$30 x2
Rabies vaccination $15 - $25
Heartworm test $15 - $35
Flea/tick treatment $50 - $200
Putting Your Support in the Right Place Adopting a pet means that when you pay your adoption fee, your money is going to an organization that treats animals humanely. Purchasing a pet at a pet store means direct financial support to puppy mills. Saving dogs and placing them in loving homes is the #1 priority of the Pixel Fund.
