Cash Donations

Cash donations will be used to directly benefit the animals, such as to acquire specialized equipment and provide a fund for extraordinary veterinary costs. Cash donations are not used to offset general operating costs of the shelter. Charitable receipts are available upon request for any donation and will be automatically mailed to identified donors of donations over $15. Charitable receipts may also be available for substantial donations of supplies.
