Buy a paper heart to show your support of our pets adoption. Each red heart represents someone in our community who has donated $1 and the gold hearts represent a $10 donation. Each heart proudly displays the donor’s name, a message or the name of their pet. The proceeds help us provide food, medical care, vaccines and shelter for the pets awaiting adoption.
