Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate online:

    No donation is too small. You can make a donation using your credit or debit card by using our secure, online PayPal account. Just click on the Donate button, and it will send you directly to the donation page. You do not even need to have a PayPal account.

  • By mail: Mail a check payable to

    P.O. Box 4074
    Cookeville, TN 38502

  • In person: We have donation jars available at our adoption events at PETCO in Cookeville.

Monetary donations help us with purchasing the supplies needed to maintain a healthy quality of life for the rescued dogs and cats in our care, providing veterinarian care, vaccinations, heartworm testing, spaying/neutering prior to adoption, plus much more. A few dollars donated can go a long way!
