Sponsorship gifts provide recurring monthly support for the work of the Animal Guardian Network. Giving what you can each month is one of the greatest ways you can help us meet our needs. Our needs each month include, but are not limited to:

  • Food and Medicine
  • Ongoing Care Needs
  • Cleaning and Household Products
  • Building and Site Development
  • Employing Staff for Animal Care

Help us continue building a legacy!

While many wonderful organizations provide abused or neglected animals with short-term shelter and care before placing them in adoptive homes, we are different.

Animal Guardian Network is a place where the most overlooked and forgotten animals—elderly, special needs, and hospice animals who were destined for euthanasia or slaughter and had little chance for adoption—come to live out the rest of their lives in a safe, loving, enriching sanctuary.

Where a long life is not always possible, but a full one absolutely is.
