Olivia was pulled from a high kill shelter just days before she was ready to give birth to her puppies. She was round as a barrel, had open wounds covering her body, and had been poorly treated in her short 3-year life. She had 10 puppies and things were looking up until her puppies contracted Parvo, a deadly and unforgiving ailment. In spite of sparing no expense, five of Olivia’s puppies crossed the Rainbow Bridge. The medical bills were enormous (over $8,200) but Olivia and her five surviving puppies are alive and doing well today thanks to our dedicated volunteers who helped them. Because Olivia and her puppies quickly became critically ill, they had to be admitted to the hospital on an emergency basis. NBRAN had no time to fundraise prior to their treatment. Now we need to recoup those funds (and more for future emergencies) so we can pay for Olivia, her puppies, and all the medically needy dogs that come into our care.

NBRAN has rescued many dogs (like Olivia and her puppies) that were also in desperate need of help. And when wonderful families like yours step up and welcome these hard luck dogs as new family members, the adoption donations typically only cover a small portion of their medical expense. In fact, in certain parts of the country, the adoption donation does not cover the cost of the medical exam, immunizations, sterilization and heartworm testing of healthier dogs. Treating dogs infected with heartworm can cost up to $1,000, leaving NBRAN in a financial deficit when caring for the abandoned, abused and neglected dogs that come into our care.

It has been A YEAR since NBRAN’s last letter. The continued rescue of neglected, abused and elderly dogs requiring extensive health care services has diminished our financial resources. Your monetary assistance is urgently needed!

The purpose of NBRAN is to:

  • Rescue Brittanys from high kill shelters and shelters that have run out of room and time
  • Offer a safe haven for Brittanys surrendered as a result of economic or personal circumstances
  • Provide assistance for senior Brittanys that heartless owners dump for that “new puppy”
  • Provide foster care and required medical care for Brittanys in need like Olivia and her puppies
  • And foremost, find stable, loving and caring forever homes for these Brittanys

At NBRAN, volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Your donations are used to help the dogs, not to pay for executive retreats and self-promotion like some ‘rescues.’ We are a group of dedicated volunteers. Many of our vets discount their services for NBRAN. Transportation is donated by our drivers. Foster homes provide food, toys, treats, and love, but We NEED Your Help! 

What can your tax deductible donation do? Your generous donations will help provide the desperately needed health care required by abused, neglected or abandoned Brittanys. Lifesaving care needed by dogs like Olivia and her pups can cost NBRAN thousands of Dollars! Here is a listing of average costs for our rescued dogs:
