We rely completely on the generosity of you and other people, within the communities we support, for operational funding. This enables us to deliver on all of the programs and services we offer. We are not affiliated with any animal welfare organizations such as the ASPCA or The Humane Society of America and do not receive any funding from them. Nor, do we receive funding from any national, state, or local government agencies.
