Animal Sponsorship Program
By sponsoring an animal at Animal Care Sanctuary you are creating a unique bond! Animal Care Sanctuary understands that not everyone is able to adopt an animal. Fortunately, for those who find themselves in this situation, we offer a friendly alternative to adoption. Animal sponsorship gives you the opportunity to financially sustain the care of one of our animals whose story touched your life.
As one of the largest and most successful sanctuaries in the country, Animal Care Sanctuary is home to nearly 700 animals and is solely kept alive by the generosity of our donors and sponsors. When in a home environment, the annual cost of owning a dog is approximately $1,300-$1,800 and $1,000 for a cat. Factoring in the added expense of providing extensive veterinary care, labor costs, exceptional facilities, and specific foods based upon nutritional needs; the amount of money necessary to sustain an animal in a shelter environment is significantly higher. Many of our senior animals have spent years at ACS; therefore, the financial obligations that we have for these animals tend to be higher as the animals age and require medication or therapeutic tools to manage their aging bodies.
Your support saves lives! The bond formed through sponsorship is one that keeps you connected. Upon your sponsorship of one of our adoptable animals, you will receive a picture of your animal, information on his/her background, and updates on their adoptability status. Think about how much you spend every morning on a cup of coffee. At a minimum of $10.00 a month-a third of what you spend in three days on coffee, you can sponsor an animal! You will also receive our colorful and informative Animal Care Sanctuary newsletter every quarter. This is a great way to stay informed and provides our sponsors with a feeling of accomplishment when they provide for an animal in need.
Animal profiles are available via our website, www.animalcaresanctuary.org, under the adoptable animals tab. You could also inquire, over the phone, about our animals that require extensive behavior modification or veterinary care; these animals would greatly benefit from a special friend to support them. We offer a one- time donation with a minimum of $50.00 or a monthly donation of $10.00. Your sponsorship donations are tax deductible. All monies sent to the Animal Care Sanctuary is directly put towards the betterment of our animals and in turn should make you feel better about where your money is being used. To impact the life of an animal is to make an impact on oneself.
Sponsor an animal as a gift or a tribute in honor or memory of a loved one! Sponsorship donations can be made on our website www.animalcaresancutuary.org or by sending a check. Please, note the name of the animal in the comment section of your online donation or in the memo of the check.
