SEPR FUND & SPONSOR
SEPR is a 501C3 nonprofit organization run exclusively by volunteers. Donations are tax deductible.
Throughout the years SEPR has rescued and treated dogs suffering from mange to broken bones, flea infestation to severe malnutrition, heartworm disease to allergies, and more. Not only did these dogs survive - they flourished and became cherished pets. And we couldn't have done it without you!
Rescuing dogs is a very expensive endeavor and our volunteers have their hands full. You can help us out by donating supplies, money or sponsoring a Pit Bull in our care. 100% of all donations received go directly to the care and promotion of our rescued dogs.
Dogs in our program cost an average of $350.00 depending on medical needs and length of stay. However, our adoption fee is much less. SEPR absorbs a large part of the cost of most dogs in our program. Pit Bulls can take several months to place; sometimes as long as a year or more. In addition to medical care, the dogs need food, toys, crates, etc. Some of our foster homes have become mini sanctuaries for hard-to-place Pit Bulls and care for several dogs at a time. Imagine when everyone needs their yearly shots, or when all the dogs need their monthly flea and heartworm preventative. It certainly adds up!
The only way we can continue to rescue Pit Bull dogs is if people who believe in our mission offer their support. It could be a $5.00 gift certificate at the pet store, or a week of prepaid boarding at the Tea Vet Clinic (605-368-2088). No amount is too little!
