Sponsoring a Special Needs Animal
We realize that while many of you would like to take a special needs animal into your home, you may not have the time or resources available to do so. That’s why sponsoring one of these animals is a popular alternative to adoption. Your sponsorship of a special needs dog, cat or rabbit helps Pet Project Foundation provide for their care and treatment. You can sponsor as many animals as you like, or sponsor one in honor or memory of a loved one.
What are the benefits of Sponsorship:
- Sponsoring a special needs animal can be a wonderful way to establish a bond with a new cat, dog or rabbit without actually taking one into your home.
- Sponsors receive our quarterly newsletter “Wagging Tails” with information about our shelter animals and PPF’s rescue efforts in the community.
- All sponsorships are 100% tax-deductible.
- Best of all, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve made a difference in the life of a very special dog, kitty or rabbit.
Why do these animals need sponsoring?
Animals with special needs may require extra medical care and attention, often making it hard to find placement for them until their condition has improved or stabilized. For example, a diabetic cat typically requires a special diet, daily insulin injections and regular blood tests until their condition has been stabilized. Sponsors enable us to continue providing these animals with the best care and treatment possible until a permanent, loving home can be found for them. Some animals have been abused or neglected prior to coming to our shelter and may require extra socialization and training to become ready for a home environment. Donations from sponsors help ensure we have the resources available to provide this extra assistance.
How do I sponsor an animal?
Sponsorships are available either as a one-time contribution or as an ongoing, monthly donation. You can sponsor an animal for as little as $10 a month, or for a one-time contribution of $10. You can also sponsor a special needs animal as a gift in honor of a loved one, or in memory of a beloved relative, friend or pet.
