Ways to help

We are a not for profit charitable organization (no members of this organization claim any personal benefit from any money raised), and a 501(c)(3) federally tax exempt official charitable organization. This is a fancy way of saying your generosity is two fold! Not only will it help our organization BUT it will help you during tax season!

All our food, caging, and veterinary visits are paid for by wonderful donations by people like you! Every animal that comes in, regardless of a "healthy" appearance, goes to the vet for an exam, a fecal, and any medical treatments they need. Even $1.00 makes all the difference in the world.

All donations can receive a tax letter and receipt of donation! What a great way to give a little and receive a little!
