Become a Guardian Angel

By signing up to become a Guardian Angel, you will be supporting the most special-needs animals at the Sanctuary with your monthly gift. Your donation goes toward providing top-notch medical care and treatment for pets in need, including those who are abused, traumatized, and have painful physical and emotional scars or debilitating conditions that require extensive and ongoing medical care.

Guardian Angels make it possible for us to care for any animal – dog, cat, horse, pig, bird or other homeless pet – who arrives at the Sanctuary, no matter how challenging their case or what their needs are.

Telling the stories of special-needs animals

On the Guardian Angel section of the website, we tell the animals’ ongoing stories over time with updates from our veterinary staff and caregivers. Guardian Angels are a critical part of these special animals' lives, ensuring that these extraordinary souls receive the extra care they need when they arrive at the Sanctuary, so they can be rehabilitated back to good health and then placed in a very good home. We continue to follow their stories even after they've been adopted!

For those animals who do require long-term, perhaps lifelong, care at the Sanctuary, your monthly gift will be helping them live the very best life possible.

Make a difference in the lives of homeless pets

Become a Guardian Angel to special-needs dogs, cats and other animals today. They are counting on you.
