We are excited to promote our “Adopt a Cat Cage or Dog Kennel” program. By participating in this program, you, as an individual, organization or business, can help us care for the homeless animals by sponsoring a cat cage or dog kennel for a month, six months or a year.
Your cage or kennel sponsorship will help fund the food, vaccinations and spay or neuter surgery for each cat or dog housed in it while they wait for their “fur-ever” homes!
Find out how you can Adopt a Cage or Kennel.
