Dream Team Sponsorship

There are many who would like to give love and support to a pet but forever reason simply cannot have one of their very own.
PAW Dream Team Sponsorship Program is designed for those who would like to make the commitment to love and care for a shelter pet while it waits and “dreams” of their new forever home.
So many shelter animals just need the loving care of a person. Someone to talk to them, cuddle them, walk, brush and play with them. A sponsor can help each animal become a more adoptable pet by giving them the love and attention they will receive in their new home. Training them to sit, walk nicely on a leash, stay down…just getting used to human contact are just some of the many  benefits for the sponsored animals here at the shelter.
As a sponsor you may bring your animal toys, treats, a new collar or leash. After you have developed a bond with your pet, off sight outings are encouraged… A car ride, a trip to the nearby park, some even visits the local ice cream shop.
It is our goal to find a special sponsor for each and every one of the amazing animals in our care.

Many of our sponsors have developed a tight bond with their sponsored pet…and though they are happy to see them adopted and leave for a loving home, they have found it IS hard to say goodbye!
Becoming a member of the Dream Team not only has wonderful benefits for the sponsored animal, but helps financially support PAW Animal Shelter. Your monthly donation helps us provide Heartworm Prevention for your dog, routine vetting, food and treats.

Your sponsorship WILL make a difference in the lives of an animal and in the continuing effort of PAW Animal Shelter to be able to save the lives of the animals in their care. As a 501c3, PAW Animal Shelter operates strictly on donations, small grants, memorials and the kindness of people like you who care and support what we do.
We encourage you to become a “hands on” Dream Team Sponsor. The rewards of being a sponsor go deep.  Not only are you making a difference in the life of a shelter animal, but you are truly making a difference in YOURS!

As a Dream Team Sponsor you:
Have a love for animals that do not have a forever home.
You cannot (for whatever reason) have a pet of your own but want to make a difference in the life of an animal.
Have your limit of pets but still want to do more.
Can give Love and Hope to a Shelter Animal
Be rewarded with love, kisses and devotion from your pet.

With a monthly donation of $25 (or more) for the care of your sponsored pet you will help P.A.W continue our mission to find a forever home for every animal in our care.
You may sponsor the same animal, (monthly/quarterly/yearly) or a different pet each month. If you prefer, arrangements can be made with your bank for a monthly withdrawal. 
You are encouraged to bring treats, toys etc. for your sponsored pet.
Visit your Pet on a regular basis. Time and Love are the 2 most important things you can give your sponsored pet.
PAW will be happy to notify you when “Your Pet” has found their forever home. After celebrating the happy news, we hope you are inspired to sponsor another great animal still waiting.
For those of you living away from the shelter yet wish to sponsor a pet that has touched your heart…please go to the Change A Life Sponsor page for more information. We will be happy to help set up email information so we may keep you informed on “Your” Dream Team Pet.
