PALS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization relying completely on the generosity of individuals, corporations, businesses and foundations to provide the many services to our homeless dogs and cats.

Donations are needed for:
Day-to-Day Operations.
These include routine and life-saving medical and surgical expenses (veterinary expenses are approximately 50% of total expenses), vaccinations, food, shelter, etc.

Our Capital Campaign.
We are raising money to fund construction of a new building. This additional space would enable us to save more animal lives and provide additional services to the community.

As of March, 2011, we have raised over $500,000, received 2 acres of donated land on the grounds of Sycamore Lane Kennels and Farm and have received donated architectural building plans.
