How is my sponsorship money used?

Your contributions are used to help your sponsor dog and all the dogs in our care. The money is used to cover the costs of running the shelter such as staff to clean the kennels. The money also goes towards food for the dogs, training and medical care – all with the ultimate goal of giving each dog a lovely home and if possible finally getting each dog adopted.
