Donations & Giving

We depend on your generosity. Without donations, we cannot keep our center open or provide for the pets in our care. On average, it costs $1,000 to care for a dog until it finds a forever home. We also have special surgeries that can cost several thousand dollars a month. Cash donations—no matter how much—are greatly appreciated.
