General Fund Donation

We are a non-profit organization and rely on your support. In order for us to feed and care for our animals and pay employees, utilities, and vet bills, we need over $1 million yearly. Each and every donation truly makes a difference in the lives of homeless animals. 

Give-A-Dog-A-Bone Medical Fund

This fund helps animals that come to us in need of non-routine medical care due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment.

Insure the future with a Bequest or Gift Annuity

Your love for animals can live on through a bequest to the Animal Welfare League in your will or trust. Your gift will ensure our ability to continue to care for homeless, abused and neglected pets in years to come.  Download our Bequest Brochure.

A gift annuity takes advantage of favorable tax treatment that is available only to charitable organizations and their donors. Ask your financial advisor about investing in a gift annuity that will benefit the animals.

Sponsor a Homeless Pet

You can help the Animal Welfare League by sponsoring a homeless pet for $25. Your support and generosity gives them a second chance at life.

Buy A Brick Program

A beautiful brick walkway paves the way to the front door of our Adoption Center. Memorials and honorariums for pets and people are set in stone for all to see.

“RAISE THE WOOF” Capital Campaign

Please help us to “RAISE THE WOOF” over the heads of the Thousands of lost, unwanted, neglected and abused animals that enter our intake building each and every year. This fund will renovate and repair our 50 year old Intake Building. Please help us……to help the animals.
