A quarter of the fund going to administrative purposes is not so sexy. That means you should not be just buying cards for the purpose of donation. Buy a card so that your rescuers can be covered, but if you want to give more money donate directly to a worthy SAR.

A valid point, but the fund is small ($450K/year) so that increases the admin costs. Collecting that $450K requires processing over a million payments.

And if you lose an active card or if the dog eats half of it, you can contact DOLA and they will email you a new one. Thank you SAR for the work you do!

And before making the purchase, you're reminded that the card is NOT insurance:
