Donate to our current fundraising campaign: We are trying to raise funds for surgery for one of our dogs, Miley. If you’re able to donate even a few dollars, it would be extremely helpful! No amount is too small. GoFundMe link:

Sponsor An Animal’s Cost of Care

Would you consider sponsoring our cats’ or dogs’ cost of care for a day (or week, or month)? We have set up a Shopify “store” where you can donate in specific ways to help us and our overpopulated animal shelter.

For $15, you can provide an animal with 1 day of housing. For $40, you can provide a cat with a spay or neuter surgery, ensuring we don’t add any more animals to a community in crisis. For $75, you can feed all 60+ of our shelter dogs for 1 day.

Please consider sponsoring a day in the life of a homeless animal in our shelter while they patiently wait to find loving homes. We can’t do what we do without our community, and your support helps these animals beyond words!

Sponsor An Animal’s Adoption Fee

If you’d like to sponsor an animal’s adoption fee, please consider a cat or dog that would need it more than others. An animal that has already had their fee paid for will have a star next to their name.

Our furry friends that have been here for an extended period of time, are older, or have underlying issues that might make it harder to adopt need help the most. You can find the prices of adoption fees on our adoption page. You can give us a call at 410-749-7603 to pay over the phone for a certain cat or dog, and we will update their bio to reflect that they’ve been sponsored.

Not all of our donations need to come in the form of financial contributions. There are many items that we need that you may even have around the house! Below is a list of items that you may wish to donate. We feed our animals Hills Science Diet Adult Cat/Dog and Kitten/Puppy, as well as Purina Kitten Chow & All Natural (Dye-Free) Cat Chow – any other donated food is used for our Food Bank for those in need in our community.

We appreciate all of your support in keeping our animals and staff safe and healthy, and our pets well taken care of until they find their forever homes!
