Adopt a Friend

Do you have a heart for our furry (and some not so furry!) friends? For just $5 per month (only $60 for the whole year!) you could “adopt” one of our animals as a sponsor! Your $5 will go towards food, bedding, and other supplies needed to keep our friends happy and healthy!     

As a sponsor and honorary pet parent, we will put your name and picture up by your adopted pet’s home (so they can say ‘Thank you!’) and we will send monthly photos and updates to you so you can watch them grow and thrive.

If you are interested in sponsoring one of these cuties,  email us at or call us at 330-665-3466.
