Do you ever wish to have a dog, but because of your lifestyle, your other commitments or housing constraints are prevented from having one? Or do you simply wish to contribute to a meaningful cause? The Sponsor-A-Dog (SAD) Program is a program designed to bring you closer to our dogs by allowing you to get to know one of our dogs better and help sponsor it to give it a better life.
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM ABOUT
The program involves a contribution of any sum a month to aid in the caring of a particular dog. The amount of contribution is really based on your own discretion. We usually receive sponsorships ranging from $10 to $50 a month. Though we hope that this program can help cultivate a close and lasting relationship between sponsor and dog, this remains purely voluntary and sponsors may opt out of it should any problems, financial or otherwise, arise. Also, due to the tight constraint of funds, we are accepting more than one sponsor for each dog and we seek the understanding of potential sponsors.
WHERE THE MONEY GOES
The sum contributed will generally go towards the daily needs of the dog. First up, it will help sponsor its daily meal at the shelter. This usually consists of rice, meat, anchovies, vegetables and kibbles. It will also go towards the purchase of shampoo or needs of the common pool of dogs. It might also go towards payment of any medical bills the dog incurs should it happen to fall ill.
ACCOUNTING TO THE SPONSORS
We will keep you updated about the dog you decide to sponsor and you can come down to visit him/her any time you wish. If the particular dog has any re-homing opportunities, we will also keep you updated.
If you are interested in participating in our program, please do drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then forward you a catalogue of our dogs containing the necessary information to help you make your decision!
Thanks for giving us your time!
