Holiday Fund Drive


donate_now_buttonA home is the wish of every rescue animal who finds refuge at the Dearborn Animal Shelter. So far in 2014—with your help—we have made that wish come true for 1,335 cats and dogs.

Like Stanley, our holiday spokes-pup. Because of YOU Stanley went from abandoned to hopeful to a forever home.

But so many more will be arriving daily during the winter months. And all will be clinging to the same wish: a home of their own.

Your gift will help us grant at least 350 more home-for-the-holiday wishes!

Thank you for making so many wishes come true!

We expect at least 330 cats and kittens and 55 dogs and puppies to enter our doors by year’s end.

Goal: To raise $30,000 online before January 1!

How does your gift help?

  • It takes $74 to nurture and care for a cat or kitten from intake to adoption
  • It takes $100 to nurture and care for a dog or puppy  from intake to adoption.
  • 330 cats/kittens x $74 = $24,420
    + 55 dogs/puppies x $100 = $5,500
    = $29,920

A Holiday Wish Granted!

Vada is our holiday spokes-kitty. She was found, barely breathing, at just one-week-old. So fragile, she required extra special care for many months. Watching her grow and flourish was a priceless gift.

Vada thrived because you believed in her future. She is home for the holidays thanks to YOU. So many Vadas need you NOW!
