Sponsor a Dog
The bills for keeping a kennel of 50 sled dogs are endless. Dog food alone costs us $75/day. Then there is vaccinations, medications, vet bills, houses, chains, snaps, straw, dishes, harnesses, booties, dog jackets, the list goes on.... Bottom line, dog mushing is VERY expensive! Any help that the dogs can get will help gurantee the dogs are getting the best available food, care, and equipment.
If you would like to help support our team, sponsoring a dog is a great way to help us and you get to track your dog's progress. Each dog sponsorship comes with a kennel tour to meet/pick your dog and get a picture with your dog. Lead dog sponsors get the dog tag they wore if they made the Iditarod team (with option to have it made into a bracelet), and a Team Zappa sweatshirt or pants. Team dog sponsors get a team T-shirt. Each dog can have only one Lead Dog sponsor but unlimited Team Dog sponsors.
We are so lucky to have so many awesome dogs in our life! These guys really are our family and we love them as such. They are not only amazing athleetes but sweet, loving, and always excited to see us.
