Become a Sponsor

Sponsorships provide an excellent opportunity for individuals, businesses and organizations to reach out to animal lovers and find an audience that believes deeply in animal welfare. But probably the greatest reward is knowing your sponsorship enables Helping Paws to continue to save the lives of homeless animals and give them their second chances.
Second Chance Ticket

“Second Chance Ticket” Sponsorship

  • Do you want to be part of saving a homeless animal’s life, but aren’t able to adopt or foster?
  • Helping Paws Animal Shelter has created a “Second Chance Ticket” Sponsorship that will allow you to help rescue the animals! By becoming a sponsor, you will provide the funding needed to remove these animals from high-volume kill shelters, where they have little to no hope at a future, and onto a transport to our shelter, where they will be given their Second Chance at a great life!
  • Your sponsorship will pay for their initial vet exam and health certificate, initial vaccinations, any necessary medications (prior to travel), as well as the cost of transportation.
  • All sponsors will receive a photo of their rescued animal and be able to follow their journey all the way through adoption on our Facebook page! Second Chance Tickets also make great gifts to honor someone’s birthday or anniversary. Help us save a life today!
  • Please complete this form. Mail or drop off with your payment to: Helping Paws Animal Shelter.

Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.” ― Roger A. Caras
