Financial Reports

There are so many deserving organizations competing for the ever-shrinking donation dollar, we hope that this information will help you in making an informed decision.

At Lagotto Romagnolo Dog Rescue, we strongly believe in being open and honest with our donors and adopters regarding how our money is received and exactly how that money is spent. Below are the links to our financial information, and our tax exempt certifications can be found here: 2020-2023. If, at any time, you have any questions concerning how our funds are expended or received, or you would like copies of our income tax filings, please feel free to contact us.

As an all-volunteer organization, we have very few administrative expenses and no salaries which need to be funded. Only a very small percentage of all expenses do not relate directly to the dogs' needs. These expenses include such things as accountant's fees for tax filings, paper, postage, advertising, etc. These fees are always paid from the income generated from our adoptions or our volunteers pockets - never from publically donated funds. ALL donated funds are used only to pay direct Lagotto Romagnolo dogs need costs - primarily veterinary care, grooming, training, medications and food (although the food is often paid from our foster parents' pockets).

Since we work mostly with behavioral rehabilitation Lagotti, our veterinary expenses, grooming & training expenses are higher than many other breed rescues, and, as you can see, comprise most of all our expenses (approximately 75%) - even with the wonderful discounts which our participating trainers, groomers, veterinarians and veterinary clinics give us.
