Animal Sponsorship

Each of these animals needs a sponsor so we can continue to provide the care that they need and deserve. From as little as a dollar a week you can make a huge difference to these animals lives.

These animals also help the community by teaching an important lesson of empathy and compassion to visiting “At Risk Youth”.

For sponsoring an animal you will receive the following for an annual sponsorship

    • A picture of your sponsored animal
    • Regular updates about the animal
    • An invitation to the sanctuary to meet your sponsored animal
    • For sponsors who would like to be more hands on we encourage regular play dates at the sanctuary for you and your animal.

So please sponsor one of the following animals and give them the gift of life.

If you would like to sponsor an animal, please email us on and we will get in touch with you and let you know how to get started.
