Sponsoring a pet at the Animal Welfare Association makes a true impact in saving lives
With a $75 gift, you can put a furry face to your donation by being a part of AWA’s Pet Sponsorship program. Your 30-day sponsorship gives additional support to a select group of animals that need some extra help. These adoptable pets may already have a higher-than-average length of stay at AWA, they may be older, or have health or behavior challenges that make it more difficult to find their forever home.
Sponsor a pet and be a champion to homeless animals until they find their forever home!
If you are unable to sponsor an animal through our Pet Sponsorship program, we ask that you please share their story to help them find a loving home.
Choose a Pet In Need
The animals available in our Pet Sponsorship program are the most in need. They may be having a difficult time being adopted due to age, breed, or size, or have medical or behavioral challenges making it harder for them to find homes.
Choose the dog, cat, or small animal that you would like to sponsor from our available sponsorship list. If that pet is adopted during your month of sponsorship, your gift will still help other needy pets by going into AWA’s general operating fund.
Visit our adoptions pages to find more pictures and learn more about the animals available for sponsorship at AWA.
Our dogs available for sponsorship will change as more come in and others are adopted out. For more pictures and information of these pups, visit our dog adoption page to help choose the dog you’d like to sponsor.
Hey, I'm Rooster! I have a lot of anxiety being in a shelter, but I'm a big, lovable goof at heart who just wants to play in the woods and eat cheese. Lots and lots of cheese...
I'm just a southern pup from Alabama looking for a home. I love playing with all my friends here so much that I get very anxious when they're gone. Once I find a home I'll be the best friend in the world.
I'm Dallas. Don't let my name fool you, I'm a winner! It's been hard finding a home and causing me stress, but I know someone out there will give me a chance!
Hey, it's Rudolph. I've been really shy at AWA because of how stressful it is not having a home. I might not be showing it much yet, but when I warm up to my new family I'll be tons of fun!
When I came to AWA I needed a mass removed and some work done to my teeth. Since then nobody has come to meet me, but I know my time will come to find a furever home!
I've been very stressed here because I like being in a home where I can roam free. Walks and play time here are fun but I'm waiting for someone to come make me a part of their family home.
If you think I look like a big goofball, you'd be correct. I'm told I've been overlooked due to being 5 years old and a nice, svelte 69 pounds, but I can't believe that would stop anyone from making me their new best friend.
I'm only 1 year old and have been in a shelter for months and months waiting for a home. Once somebody takes a chance on this big fella I know we'll be best buds!
Ayo, it's Stallone. I've been looking for a role as best pup in a new home. It's been a while and the stress is getting to me, but hopefully I'll get my shot soon enough.
Our cats available for sponsorship will change as more come in and others are adopted out. For more pictures and information of these pups, visit our cat adoption page to help choose the cat you’d like to sponsor.
Hey, it's Connie. I had a pellet shot into my head, but when I arrived at AWA the doctors fixed me right up. I'm a fighter, but I'm still a little shy around humans while I learn to trust them after this experience. I hope to find a family soon that will love me and help me forget my traumatic past.
Hi, I'm Homer! I've been at the AWA for a bit because I had to get some dental work done. I only have 6 teeth left and it gives me a funny smile but that doesn't mean I'm not still a handsome little guy who needs love!
So nice they named me twice, I'm Lola/ Courtney and I have lots of that famed tortoiseshell "Tortitude." I've been at AWA for over 6 months looking for a home, and I just want a chance to be someone's furever friend.
My name is Peaches and I'm a 5 year old female who's just as sweet as my namesake. Not only am I adorably chunky, but I'm a dilute tortie, so my fur is a gorgeous gray and tan color that you'll absolutely fall in love with! I can be a little shy at first, but I just need someone to give me the chance to be their best friend!
It's Maaco! I'm very shy so I've been spending my time in AWA's development office so I can make some friends. For those that have seen me come out of my shell, I'm a doll to be around and lots of fun. I can't wait for someone to come along and help me be the best me!
Holly here. I'm sassy, fun and beautiful just like my namesake! I've had fun here at AWA, but I'm not sure why nobody has come to take me home and it's stressing me out.
Our guinea pigs, rabbits, and other small animals available for sponsorship will change as more come in and others are adopted out. For more pictures and information of these pups, visit our small animal adoption page to help choose the furry friend you’d like to sponsor.
Pancake & Philip (bonded)
We're just two best friends bonded at the hip looking for new best friends! It's been 3 months since arriving at AWA and we're anxious to get out and find a home of our own.
