Save-A-Pet's rescue fund helps pay for more intakes and the many expenses associated with saving lives. If you'd like to contribute to the Rescue Fund and this very generous challenge grant, please click HERE.
Special Needs Care Fund
As a no-kill rescue, Save-A-Pet does not discriminate against an animal's age, infirmity, or emotional issues. Some of our residents require expanded care and rehabilitation which often costs more money. A gift to support our special care animals will allow these dogs and cats the maximum chance for recovery and adoption. To contribute to the Special Needs Fund, please click HERE.
Leaving a "living legacy" is a special gift that ensures that the lives of future generations of dogs and cats can be saved. If you are interested in planned giving options such as bequests, please contact Erica Wyatt, Executive Director, at 847.740.7788 X 102 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
Honors and Memorials
In memory or in acknowledgement of a special family member or pet, your gift can honor them by saving another life and expanding someone else's family with the same spirit of love you share with that special family member or pet. Choose from our Tree of Life, Cat Tiles, online honors & memorials, and more. For more information on Honors and Memorials, please contact Shelter Administrator Nikki Nedza at 847.740.7788 X 103 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
