Because we are a nonprofit, it is only through the generosity of our community that we are able to survive. We thrive on the kindness of our members, donors, and volunteers. Your donation is deeply appreciated and will make a real difference in the lives of those we serve!
We also have donation initiatives for people who wish to donate in a more targeted way.
Sponsor One Survivor (SOS)
With our Sponsor Our Survivor (SOS) initiative, donors may sponsor the stay of one of our shelter clients!
Our goal is to reach $10,608 a year in SOS donations.
See our flyer about the SOS initiative to learn more.
You may also volunteer to sponsor a pet! Sometimes, our shelter clients are afraid to leave their pets behind. When this happens, we need a safe temporary home for the pet. If you are interested in fostering a pet in your home, please give us a call at (434) 394-3505!
If you wish to donate items to the shelter, please call our office at (434) 394-3505 to schedule a drop off time and location. Because the location of our shelter is confidential, we will be happy to meet you somewhere to pick up the donations! Pick ups can be scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays during business hours.
