Lillian Allbon Animal Shelter



The L.A. Animal Shelter is pleased to unveil our new Pet Sponsorship Program as of March 2020. Our new program invites businesses in Cumberland County and beyond to share the cost of care for a cat or dog, to help make their stay at the shelter a little more comfortable.

Our new program offers two options to businesses owners, both small and large. For a donation of $200, you will sponsor an animal for a 6-month period. For a little more – $300 – you can sponsor an animal for a full year. All sponsorship donations are eligible for a tax receipt. Your sponsorship towards the animal of your choice will help us pay for much needed expenses for that animal, such as food, litter, daily lysine (to help prevent URI), along with vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, mandatory testing for cats, and necessary antibiotics, and many other vet care expenses.

Each business who sponsors an animal will receive a framed photo and biography of their animal to display in their establishment, along with a photo of their business accepting their sponsorship posted to our Facebook page, and updated often. Your business will also be featured on the animal’s kennel chart, able to be seen by anybody visiting the shelter! Your business will receive updates on the animal’s progress and will receive a new animal to sponsor once theirs has been adopted.

Sponsors can visit the shelter directly to choose their cat or dog, ask the shelter staff to choose, or choose from pictures of adoptable animals on the website or Facebook page. Please complete the following form and return it to the L.A. Animal Shelter.

This is an exciting new project for the L.A. Animal Shelter to help the wonderful but neglected, abandoned or injured animals to find loving compassion, excellent care and very strict screening before being placed in a home.

Such a great way to get your business advertised, all while helping those who cannot help themselves.
