If you are doing the rescue work for a recognized 501(c)(3) it is tax deductible.
This is one of many good reasons to form a 501(c)(3) IMHO. Some have a different opinion. Other benefits are increased donations, possibility for grants, etc. If you are doing it on your own then no, I'm afraid it is not tax deductible. The IRS has gotten more strict this year also - so when you pay a vet bill you need to get a receipt from the 501(c)(3). If you have any more questions I'll be happy to try to answer them, but I'm not a CPA or anything.
