One of my good friends lost her dog this wknd.  She was sick w/IMHA.  She is wondering is any rescues are able to accept meds she'd like to donate.  She's got some cyclosporine, Sam-E (for liver health) and possibly some prednisone.  She's spent thousands trying to save her Jasmine and wants to donate the pills to help others that have the desire to save, but not the resources.  She thought it would be a nice way to honor her dog.
Thanks for the help.

It is hard to dispense of meds as a rescue. So much has to be taken into account and most rescue folks are not that savey for determining medications for a rescued dog. However, what we've done is prescription meds we have taken back to our Vet and ask them to give them to folks that maybe can't afford them and need them. Now we would keep things like tramadol, metranitozel and Rymadhl, (sorry for spelling), as those are general type medications and can be used by weight comparison of the dogs.

Something that has been done by rescues I work with, is to have the meds on hand and then when they are prescribed by a vet, they will then know the proper dosage and can use the meds without having to purchase new meds.  Meds can expire though, so the best thing is if there is an organization that is composed of numerous rescue groups (Wisconsin has a group called AWARE), where they work together and could contact tons of other groups to see if anyone had a dog in need of that specific medicine so it didn't expire.
Make sense or did I ramble too much?  lol
