Please Consider a Financial Donation
How do we use donated funds?
We only use donated funds for hands-on animal care, i.e. veterinary treatments, food, medicines. We are an all-volunteer group so no monies are used for salaries. We do of course have operating expenses such as rent, electricity, and phone but we will not use your donation for any of these expenses unless you indicate otherwise.
All donations are tax-deductible and we will provide you with a receipt.
Please consider making a gift today through Pay Pal. Your Gift Matters!
