 Every Life Counts

At Strawberry Fields we rescue the seniors, the handicapped and the sick.

The animals some of society deem "throw aways". 

We believe they are diamonds in the rough. 

They are precious, living, breathing souls. 

At SFAR they have a second chance at life.

Donate to Our Mission

We need your help to continue rescuing senior animals!  Please consider making a donation today.  As we continue to take in more animals we must keep donations coming in.  Your donations go toward things such as:

  • medical exams

  • life saving vaccines such as rabies, canine distemper, feline distemper and bordetella

  • testing for internal parasites (it's not uncommon that animals coming from shelters will have parasites)

  • life saving heartworm preventatives and flea/tick prevention

  • heartworm testing

  • spay/neuter surgeries

  • treatment for ailments (ear infections, uri, uti, diabetes etc.)

  • special surgery and dentals

  • medications

In our first year of operating we spent over $20,000 on medical expenses.  We make sure each and every animal we take in gets the absolute best medical care. Your donation allows them to have a second chance at life and to get them the medical help they need.

Explanation of  Medical Costs

Almost every animal we take in has not had veterinary care in a long time, if ever.  Making sure they have a thorough medical exam is the first step to making sure we spot any possible health problems.

Wellness exams can range from $40-75



It's imperative that all our rescues receive vaccines.  Vaccines protect them from possible life threatening diseases like distemper, parvo virus, leptosporosis and rabies.  All our rescues receive rabies, canine distemper or feline distemper and bordetella.

In 2021 we spent $900 on vaccines.

Vaccines can cost anywhere from $15 (individually)-$90 (complete set of vaccines)



All animals are tested for intestinal parasites by testing a fecal sample.  Common intestinal parasites are round worms, hook worms, giardia and others.  External parasites can include fleas, ticks and lice.

In 2021 we spent $300 on testing fecal samples and over $700 on flea/tick preventatives.

Fecal Test can cost anywhere from $20-80

Monthly flea/tick preventatives can range from $80 and up (varies by animal's weight and quantity of tablets)



The majority of animals we take in are adults/seniors and usually they are already spayed or neutered.  Occasionally we do get an animal that needs to be spayed or neutered.  A mature spay/neuter surgery costs more than a pediatric surgery.  Unless an animal has a medical reason they can't be operated on it is non-negotiable that they be spayed/neutered.  

In 2021 we spent $300 on spay/neuter surgeries.

Spay costs $150-250

Neuter costs $130-160



Almost every single animal we take in has not been tested for heartworm disease and has not been on regular heartworm preventative.  We go the extra step and do a test called a 4DX.  This test is  for heartworm disease as well as three tick borne diseases.

In 2021 we spent $500 on heartworm testing and $800 on heartworm prevention.

A 4DX test costs approximately $40

Heartworm prevention costs anywhere from $60-100+ per dog.  This depends on whether we elect to do a year long Proheart injection or use monthly tablets.



A lot of our rescues come to us sick.  Some have minor ailments, like ear infections, to major ailments, like heartworm disease.  Almost every rescue we take in has needed to be treated for something.  This can cause major financial strain on the organization but it 100% necessary that they are treated and remain healthy and comfortable.

In 2021 we spent over $1,000 treating medical issues.

Treatment for ailments can range from $40-2,000 depending on the severity of the case.



Often times our rescues may need special surgeries.  In the case of our rescue Lucky, he had an anal gland abscess and needed to have emergency surgery. Often times the animals we take in have had no dental care.  Poor dental health can lead to other health problems and can be incredibly painful.

In 2021 we spent $1100 on special surgeries and dentals.

Special surgeries can range from $500-2,000+

Dentals can range from $120-500+



It's imperative that all our rescues receive vaccines.  Vaccines protect them from possible life threatening diseases like distemper, parvo virus, leptosporosis and rabies.  All our rescues receive rabies, canine distemper, feline distemper and bordetella.

In 2021 we spent $900 on vaccines.

Vaccines can cost anywhere from $15 (individually)-$90 (complete set of vaccines)



A large majority of our rescues have needed medication.  Different medications can range from anti-inflammatories, insulin, allergy medications, seizure medications, dewormers, antibiotics and sedatives.  Another cost we incur is prescription diets.  Our animals that have been diagnosed with things like kidney disease and/or diabetes have required prescription diets.

In 2021 we spent $2000 on prescription diets and prescription medications.

Medication can range from $20-80+

Prescription diets range from $60-100+

Pet Food For Our Rescues

We are grateful for any pet food donations that we receive from the public.  However, we know how important it is to keep an animal on a consistent diet, as not to upset their digestive tract.  That being said, we would greatly appreciate donations of the following diets: Royal Canin, Iams, iVet, Purina Pro Plan and Hills Science Diet.  We want to keep our rescues happy and healthy!
