Sponsoring an ARRG animal

sponsorpic.jpgARRG's No-Kill programme means many rescued pets can stay in foster care indefinitely for various reasons.

Adult animals are less likely to find a new home in the short term because we must take into consideration their past experience with humans. Given time with their foster carer we then make a decision about when the pet is ready for re-homing, the current needs of the pet and we must choose the right home for the pet to be successfully placed.

Other ARRG animals needing urgent sponsorship, as they are pets that have been abandoned or handed into care suffering severe neglect and abuse. They require expensive veterinarian treatment and these animals must stay in care with ARRG foster carers until they are completely healed physically and emotionally.

Vet costs for a severe skin condition or broken leg will run into several hundreds of dollars sadly we rescue many animals needing this kind of treatment.

Medical sponsorship for these animals is crucial, it assists us in continuing our rescue work and also helps all of these animals — with the aim of them recovering enough to find their own special home.
