Dog Asking For Donations

Each donation goes directly to the health, well-being, and care of the animals. Plus, we give you the power to choose the program where your donation will be spent.  

Donation Funds 

  • Our General Fund provides the urgent supplies needed when aiding animals from cruelty cases or hoarding situations, needed supplies for the animals in our care, and any extra needs the shelter may face.
  • Our Medical Fund, affectionately called Jane's Fund, pays for the urgent outside veterinary care needed by sick and injured dogs and cats brought to our shelter. Named in honor of Jane Tableriou, an instrumental supporter during our early operations, Jane's Fund has saved hundreds of pets' lives and enabled their successful adoption. Please help us continue to provide care to the most in need.  No amount is too small!
  • Our Heartworm Treatment Fund pays for the lifesaving treatment needed for dogs that come into the shelter with heartworms.  
  • Our Dog Behavior Training Fund provides training and enrichment tools for our staff and volunteers to use to help the dogs stay happy through mental and physical stimulation, as well as helping the dogs to learn good behaviors to set them up for success when they've been adopted into loving new homes.
  • Our Kitten Care Fund provides lifesaving programs and needed supplies to help care for the hundreds of kittens that enter the shelter each kitten season.
  • Our Play Yard/Memorial Fund helps us to beautify our Play Yards and Memorial Plaza.  You may also purchase engraved bricks for placement in the Memorial Plaza.  See below for more details.
  • Our Animal Transport Fund is a vital part of our lifesaving mission, allowing us to send pets to other areas of the country where there is a shortage of adoptable pets which in turns helps us to make space for the new pets coming into the shelter each day.
  • Our Marketing Fund allows us to go the extra mile for a dog or cat in need of a loving new home. With these funds, we can boost posts on social media, helping them to be seen by even more people. When donating to our marketing fund, please email with details so that we can track your donation and use it in the best way possible.

By purchasing an item to help sustain the yard and gardens, not only are you honoring a beloved pet or family member, you are also aiding a lifesaving program for the dogs of Williamson County.
