sponsor an animal
The average stay of an animal in our no-kill rescue organization is 10-12 months. Some require even more time because they must first be rehabilitated after previous abuse. It takes a great deal of money to care for them and your sponsorship of one or more of our animals makes it easier for us to do that. Our sponsorship program is a great way for you to have a 'virtual pet' with no day-to-day responsibilities.
For as little as $20 a month, you can help to change the life of a special animal. In addition to the satisfaction of sponsoring a pet, you will receive an email within two weeks with a photo of your sponsored animal and their story. You will also receive an update every couple of months on how they are doing along with new pictures. When your sponsored animal is adopted, we will email you a photo of them with their forever family as well as a suggestion on our other animals to continue your valued sponsorship.
If you are in the New York City area, you can come visit your sponsor dog any Saturday from 12 to 5pm where we are showing them on the southwest corner of Union Square Park and also inside Petco a block away. You can visit your cat during open hours 7 days a week at Ollie's Place at 430 E. 9th Street
HOW FAR DOES MY $20/MONTH GO?
Each one of our animals is fed twice daily ($1.50). They are all fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and fully examined by a veterinarian the moment they are rescued. Doing the math, the yearly maintenance of one dog/cat is approximately:
Feeding and housing: ($1.50/day x 365 days/year): $550
Average veterinary cost: $300
Our yearly cost: $850
Your generous sponsorship donation of $20 per month ($240 per year) will defray about 28% of the total cost of keeping an animal or almost half the cost of feeding them!
