Sponsor an Animal

Have you ever wished you could adopt one of the animals on our Available Dogs or Cats page but you just can’t have another pet?

Do you want to make a difference in the life of a homeless animal without making a long term commitment? Is your schedule just too hectic to volunteer?

Well, we’ve got a solution for you: Sponsor an animal in our program!

Each of the cats and dogs that enter our program receive, at a MINIMUM, routine veterinary care, spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, a microchip, a heartworm test and treatment (if needed), a fecal flotation and deworming (if needed), FIV/FELV screening, a foster home at a private residence, specialty food (if needed), lots of love, and placement into a carefully screened forever home.

When necessary, we also ensure these animals receive specialized surgeries to repair their broken legs, remove cancerous lumps and provide them with a whole a host of other extensive medical treatments.

Over 90% of the time, our adoption fees are NOT enough to cover the costs of the veterinary care that is required to rehabilitate these animals. As such, we rely very heavily on donations from people just like you!

Sponsor an animal

To Sponsor an Animal: Please visit our Available Pets page and choose the foster animal you are interested in sponsoring. Every pet has a sponsorship button located just beneath their photos. Simply click that button to get started!

It’s not that the animal you sponsor would not receive what they need to thrive if they are not sponsored, but your donation/sponsorship of that animal helps offset the costs they incur on a daily basis along with all their vetting. This helps us welcome in more animals with confidence, and especially if the animal you’re sponsoring is special needs, will empower us to save more like them in the future. 

Often we receive offers to sponsor adoption fees, but adoption fees aren’t in place to cover the entirety of an animals vetting – they’re in place to offset some of the costs and ensure the adopter is financially prepared to have an animal, with the adoption fee preparing the adopter for an annual vet visit. We are also 100% donation run, so adoption fees do help us help more. Consider donating toward the care of animals in our program and if you would like to arrange for a special donation or have any questions, please email us at donations@leoncountyhumane.org 

100% of your donation is tax deductible!
