BMAR does NOT cage. We have extended runs with shelters.
BMAR is a NO KILL SHELTER...we do NOT Euthanize.
BMAR feeds only Premium Foods. It is our experience that cheap grocery store kibbles contribute to the problems these dogs came in with - and are probably abandoned because of their poor conditions due to these inferior feeding diets adopted by the public.
BMAR charges a $100 "drop off fee". Initial health check up, vaccines, wormers, meds cost $100 and that's just the beginning! All animals are spayed and neutered. This $100 fee is just a drop in our never ending bucket. But, we try not to turn anyone down if we have the space.
BMAR charges a $100+ adoption fee. If you can't afford an adoption fee, you can't afford a pet.
BMAR has a "no questions asked" policy and will accept any adopted animal back for any reason.
BMAR has many expenses that the general public does not think about. Electric/Utilities, Waste Disposal, Bedding/Shavings Materials and that's just the beginning. Feed, Medications, Vet Bills, Supplements, Fuel for vehicle transport, Flea & Pest Control, Training, Rehabilitation, Toys, Website Fees...the list goes on.
We strive towards the day when no healthy or treatable companion animal will be euthanized for lack of space or resources!
