Of food that is! We use circa 65-75 bags of dry food a month.

All of our Sanctuary dogs have an enriched, happy life and are loved but of course there is a monetary cost attached to saving and housing an animal for life and on average it costs us £15 a week to keep a dog which includes food, treats, vet care, bedding etc, etc. Doesn't sound much does it? But remember with us you have to multiply it by 150 at least as that's how many permanent residents we have and some of them have equipment needs, regular meds, special diets and so on and so forth. So that's £2,250 a week conservatively, £9,000 a month, £108,000 a year.

Given those statistics, giving the gift of even one bag of food is a huge help to us and is so very much appreciated.
