We appreciate generous donations that keep our shelter clean and keep the animals we care for fed and comfortable. Donations may be dropped off at the shelter, but as ACOs are frequently out on calls, please bring any donations to the Police Department at City Hall (100 Municipal Circle) if no one is at the shelter. Please do not leave donations outside. Thank you for understanding.

Sponsor a feral cat.

  • A $30 sponsorship donation covers the cost of sterilization and a rabies vaccination for one feral cat. The cat is then relocated to a barn home in a rural area. It's a fast, easy and effective way to help our cause if you can't adopt an animal yourself! We are dedicated to reducing the number of feral cats in our community effectively and humanely.
