Sponsor a Pet!
When you’re unable to adopt, but still want to help, you can sponsor a pet to help us provide food, care, and housing while it waits for its loving forever home.
Finding a pet to sponsor
To find a pet to sponsor, go to the available cats, dogs, or other animals pages to see which pets are still in need of a sponsor. Once one captures your heart, open and complete the pet sponsorship form to submit your sponsorship.
How pet sponsorship works
Pet sponsorship levels
When you decide to sponsor a pet, you choose the length of the sponsorship and the amount you’d like to contribute from the following options:
Duration: One, two, three, four, or twelve months
Amount: $25, $50, or $100
So, someone could choose to donate $50 for three months making a total contribution of $150. All the options are shown on the pet sponsorship form.
Pet sponsorship recognition
Individuals, groups, or businesses (including a link to a business site, if you wish) are welcome and encouraged to sponsor a pet.
Your name (individual, group, or business) will be published alongside the pet’s bio and you can also add a memorial or dedication. You may also choose to remain anonymous.
The pet’s bio will be moved to the top of the page upon sponsorship and your sponsorship information will remain with the pet’s bio for the duration of your sponsorship. The sponsorship is usually posted with the pet’s bio the day after the sponsorship payment has been received.
