Sponsored Animals - Please note we often have sponsored animals which means that all or a portion of the animal's adoption fee may be paid for by a generous supporter of our shelter. This can vary from animal to animal. Sponsorships are annotated on the pet's profile page and also on their kennel at the shelter. Amounts vary. If you are interested in sponsoring a pet, you may contact the shelter to speak with our staff or do so online via Donate NOW Directed Giving.
