Dog Sponsorship.

Maybe you like the look of one of the above dogs, but are unable to adopt him or her for yourself? You can always sponsor a dog - which will make it a lot easier for someone else to adopt. Any amount that you sponsor will be deducted from the adoption fee for that particular dog and you will receive recognition in the dogs description for your generosity! (plus, you get to have a nice, warm fuzzy feeling inside - knowing that you are helping a dog in need) ;)
Dog sponsorships are proving to be extremely successful, with the vast majority of sponsored dogs finding a home quickly! If you are interested in sponsoring, please complete the form below and be sure to enter the kennel number and brief description of the dog in the message subject line. Please enter the recognition or message (that you would like us to add to the description) in the large box at the bottom of the form. 
After sending the form to us, please use the Donate button (below) to send your chosen sponsorship amount.
- Thank you, sponsorships really do make the world of difference!

Canella
Canella

Saturday April 15 our 9 year old female chiihuahua got out. This happened in the Grandview Park area. She has not come back home. Her name is Canella, and like most small dogs she barks a lot. The problem with that is, she will start barking and cause herself to have a seizure. Please contact us at 712 333 2452 if you have found her. Thanks.
