How Your Donations Help

We depend entirely on support from our community of animal welfare advocates and people who love their furry family members to keep our organization running smoothly. The funds that are donated or raised through special events pay mainly for the care of our animals, which includes medical care, food, preventatives for fleas, heartworm and other parasites, and kennel supplies, maintenance and repairs. We have staff dedicated to the welfare of our animals, including kennel assistants, behaviorist, medical assistant, an office manager and an adoption center manager. Other expenses include overhead such as rent, insurance, vehicle maintenance, and utilities.

Your donations of goods and services are also a huge benefit in helping us keep our animals happy and healthy and help save on monetary expenditures.
