Sponsor An Animal

sponsored-featuredCats and dogs in our care stay with us until they find a home. On a daily basis, we care for approximately 220 cats and 100 dogs so you can imagine how much it costs just to feed that many mouths each day. In addition, we must pay for shelter and we also provide medical care, socialization and most of all LOVE! Please become a sponsor to one of these animals in need of your help. Learn more about how you can sponsor an animal.
