While every animal at the shelter is available for adoption to the right home, some are more challenging to place and could potentially never find a home. To help these "special-needs animals" and to also support all of our animals until they find their forever homes, we've created the AWS Sponsor-a-Pet Program .
By making a one-time gift or a recurring donation of $20 or more, donors can contribute to the care of these pets until they find the right adopter or family. While one-time donations are appreciated, recurring gifts provide consistent support, showing year-round care and concern for our furry friends. Your monthly contributions will ensure that your chosen pet receives ongoing care for as long as they need it.
As a Sponsor-A-Pet Contributor, your name will be displayed under your chosen pet's photo for the length of your sponsorship (1-month, 3-months, etc.) Once your chosen pet is adopted, if your sponsorship is still active, you can select another pet to complete your sponsorship.
Credit Card Online
Choose your Sponsor Level and pay by credit/debit card using this secure, embedded form. Our contributons are handled with secure SSL, which guarantees your information is safe and secure.
