Did a specific animal’s story touch your heart? Consider becoming a sponsor for an animal to give them extra love and care!


Sponsoring an individual animal provides additional help with their daily care, covers vet bills, and provides additional nutritional requirements.  All animal sponsorships come with an extra special cute thank you card written by the animal and includes a few 4″x6″ prints of them.

Sponsorships make wonderful gifts, and is a true dedication to an animal that you’ve emotionally connected with at the Sanctuary.
