How are donations used?

Donations may be made in honor of someone or in memorium. Donations may also be designated for either the general improvement fund or for the "Sampson Fund". The "Sampson Fund" is established to provide additional veterinary care to the animals in the Shelter to help them put their best paw forward when searching for their new home.

  1. It helps pay for the care of homeless animals while attempts are made to find them adoptable homes.
  2. It helps the County fund protection for neighborhoods from dangerous dogs and helps to investigate dog bites.
  3. It funds investigations of cruelty, abuse, abandonment and neglect.
  4. It supports efforts to find good homes for homeless stray dogs through our active adoption and foster programs.
  5. It supports our efforts to care for lost or abused animals.
  6. Donations can make a meaningful difference in a dog's life. By donating funds and goods to the shelter you could be providing a dog with a chance for a loving family and a peaceful, happy life.
