Doggy ICU Patients – Past & Present

At MSRH, we want to get our Schnauzers into a loving forever home as soon as possible.  When they are healthy and ready to go, we don’t hold them back simply because we haven’t yet received donations to cover their veterinary care.  While the adoption fee covers some of the basic veterinary expenses, it does not cover the critical care expenses.  The table below is a partial listing of ‘patients’ and their outstanding medical bills that are on top of the normal veterinary bills that we accumulate (our vet bills are approximately $200,000 per year in total). Please consider donating to help MSRH (and future Schnauzers who may find themselves in a similar situation) by clicking on the “Donate” link on either our home page or the left hand menu inside our site (with instructions on how to donate by cash, check or credit card).  Credit card donations are secure via PayPal.  You can quickly donate by credit card by simply putting your donation in the box below and clicking “Donate”.  Thank You!
