Help Our Pet’s Get Loving Homes – Sponsor a Shelter Pet
Over the years, the UPAWS has worked very hard toward its goal of becoming a "no kill" shelter. Our adoption/redemption rate for the past year is at 98%. That means 98% of the animals left walking out on their own 4 feet! They were adopted, returned to owner or transferred to other rescues. We've had a amazing turn around! In large part this is due to our pet sponsorship program.
You or your business can help us continue in this direction. How about sponsoring an adult pet in need of a home? Or how about your family sponsoring or get together with a friend to sponsor! Sponsors help defray the cost of veterinary care such as spay/neuters and vaccinations.
As a sponsor, you can choose to be a cat, dog or other small animal sponsor. The shelter will choose the specific pet for you and let you know who you are sponsoring. Or you can donate to our general "Shelter Pet Sponsorship Program". Your name (or business name) will be posted on the pet's website adoption page and on the pets shelter kennel or condo, or you can remain anonymous.
The cost to sponsor a shelter dog/cats spay or neuter surgery is a donation of the following:
CAT/DOG $10.00 pays for their vaccines
$17 provides an FIV test for a shelter cat which in turn lets them share a kitty condo with other cats safely. This greatly reduces the stress on the kitty while they wait for their forever home.
$18 pays for a dogs heart worm test
Or Any Donation amount will be gratefully accepted to go toward the pets adoption.
Please call for sponsorship prices for Other small animals since it will vary.
By sponsoring a shelter pet's veterinary care, we are able to offer a lower adoption rate. This lower price improves the chances of pets (especially adults) finding a new loving home.
To sponsor a shelter pet, call the shelter at 475-6661 or email shelter manager Lareina at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sponsoring an animal helps to increase adoptions and are put to each animal with the best intention that animal will go to its FOREVER home.
