how our program is funded

At its inception in 2007 our program was funded by individual donations through The Jasper Foundation.  In 2007 the Jasper Foundation paid $10,500 to Blair Animal Clinic and Klondike Kennels for approximately six months of services to the rescue dogs.

Because one of our goals is to be self-sustaining without donations, at the end of 2008 Kyler decided to simply keep the rescue as part of his farm operation.  It is a business, not a 501(c)3 non-profit. Although we have never requested payment for any of our dogs during 2008 we received approximately $2,000 from adoptive families and others who appreciated the dogs and our services. Our kennel and grooming expenses exceeded $10,000 and vet bills were over $9,000 for 2008.

In 2009 we will continue to work on becoming sustainable by developing beneficial relationships with other businesses and putting the dogs to work in service to their community.  Providing service to the community (both dogs and people) is still the top priority but we will also seek opportunities to be paid for some of the services we provide.
