Animal Sponsorship

Have you ever wished you could adopt one of the animals on our Available Dogs or Cats page but you just can't have another pet? Do you want to make a difference in the life of a homeless animal without making a long term commitment? Is your schedule just too hectic to volunteer? Well, we've got a solution for you: Sponsor an animal in our program!

Each of the cats and dogs that enter our program receive, at a MINIMUM, routine veterinary care, spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, a microchip, a heartworm test and treatment (if needed), a fecal flotation and deworming (if needed), FIV/FELV screening, a foster home at a private residence, specialty food (if needed), lots of love, and placement into a carefully screened forever home. When necessary, we also ensure these animals receive specialized surgeries to repair their broken legs, remove cancerous lumps and provide them with a whole a host of other extensive medical treatments.

Over 90% of the time, our adoption fees are NOT enough to cover the costs of the veterinary care that is required to rehabilitate these animals. As such, we rely very heavily on donations from people just like you!

To Sponsor an Animal: Please visit our Available Dogs or Cats page and choose the foster animal you are interested in sponsoring. Enter the dog or cat’s name in the form below. If you wish to sponsor more than one animal, please make a separate donation for each animal.

100% of your donation is tax deductible!


The Leon County Humane Society is a non-profit 501(c) 3, tax deductible organization. A copy of the official registration and financial information may be obtained from the Division of Consumer Services by visiting or calling toll free 1-800-435-7352 within the state. Registration does not imply endorsement, approval, or recommendation by the state. The Leon County Humane Society’s registration number is SC-10102.

*Please note that your donation is not directly deposited into a separate account for your selected animal, but rather goes into our Animal Medical Fund to provide for veterinary services listed above. In the rare case that your sponsored animal is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, LCHS may opt for humane euthanasia depending on the animal’s prognosis and forecasted quality of life. We will notify you of the animal’s passing and are happy to apply your sponsorship to another animal in need.
