Yes of course. Rescues and pounds spend a lot of money on feeding, neutering, vet bills and staff to look after these pets. Please always give the minimum amount required and more if you can afford it.

Rescues have a no kill policy and will keep the animal till a home is found. Pounds have a policy of keeping the animal for 5 days and if not claimed they can be PTS (put to sleep).
