Sponsor a Dog & Kitty City dog or cat through our Guardian Angel Program, designed to help those animals who have a harder time finding a permanent home.
Some cats and dogs are not as adoptable as others due to their age, disposition or disability.
Some have been at the shelter so long that it is their home. As they grow older, they are less adaptable to a new home, so it may be in their best interest for them to stay in the home that they know – the shelter.
Others are shy and retiring and don’t present themselves to potential adopters to the point that they do not get noticed.
Many animals with chronic medical problems or disabilities have a harder time finding homes due to their special needs. We consider them to be dearly loved sanctuary pets. One of our cats with a disability is Rey, who is blind.
The sponsorship donation of $20 helps support basic expenses – food, shelter and medical care. You can also donate additional dollars to cover other expenses including veterinary care such as exams, blood work, vaccinations and dentals.
If a sponsored animal leaves the shelter, Guardian Angels can select another animal who will benefit from their help. Every opening at the shelter helps another animal in need!
The Guardian Angel Program is a wonderful, personal way to truly help these precious homeless animals until they can "go home" with adoptive families. You can sponsor as many cats and dogs as you wish.
