Monetary Donations
All funds raised or donated are used to keep our doors open; pay our vet bills, rent, and pet supplies. While our adoption fees help to recover some of the veterinary costs, it is mostly through the support of our community that we remain operational. We raise funds through many different avenues, including petitioning for grants, holding events, and of course — from kind hearted souls like yourself!
