Animal Sponsorship

Be a Guardian Angel

We always hope our rescued animals are adopted by loving families, but some of our animals have a harder time finding a permanent home and need lifelong care at our sanctuary, which is where our adopt a pet online feature helps.  We understand that not everyone can adopt all the animals we have available here Hooves and Paws,  that’s why sponsoring that special animal whose story touched your life is a great and fulfilling alternative to adoption. We need sponsors who will be guardian angels for the special needs animals at our sanctuary.  Working directly with spca adoptions, we hope to find guardian angels to help us provide our most needy animals with the food, medical care, special attention and extra healing time they require.

About Guardian Angel Sponsorship

Guardian Angels who sponsor a pet online will receive a color photograph and story about their sponsored animal. We will also send you regular email updates on your animal. Higher level sponsors will also have their name added to a plaque which will be placed near where the animal resides.  You can sponsor as many animals as you like.  You can also sponsor an animal as a special gift or a memorial in honor of a loved one. If you sponsor an animal as a gift, benefits apply to the gift recipient, but the sponsor will receive the receipt for his or her tax deductible charitable donation.

Animals in need of a Guardian Sponsor

Cinnamon

cinnamon and carrie

- This sweet horse was at a local animal shelter because she was no longer wanted by her family. The animal shelter considered her unadoptable due to her advanced age and a physical condition which made her unsuitable for riding. We were alerted hours before she was to be euthanized, and we quickly offered Cinnamon a home at our sanctuary.  When she first arrived, she was severely underweight.   She is slowly gaining weight but for the rest of her life, Cinnamon will require a very special diet as well as special supplements and medications.  Cinnamon is the most gentle and loving horse we have ever met.  She enjoys spending time with her favorite horse friend, Carrie.

Moby

moby

– Moby was rescued from a family who could no longer keep him.  Although Moby was loved, he was not being cared for properly.  He was living in filthy conditions and was fed a diet which consisted mainly of dog food.  Due to his poor diet, he was extremely unhealthy and overweight.  When Moby arrived at our sanctuary, our veterinarian determined that his eyesight was impaired, primarily due to his obesity.  We placed Moby on a special diet to help him lose weight.  Moby’s condition has improved but he may always have difficulty with his vision and he will need special care for the rest of his life.

Frankie – We rescued Frankie from a local feed store that was selling chicks.  She was considered worthless because she was born with a condition called scissor beak and she could not be sold.  Little Frankie would have been left to slowly starve to death if we did not take her.  She was very weak when she came to our sanctuary and she required round the clock care.  Because her beak is so malformed, she cannot eat normal chicken food.  We prepare special meals for her several times a day.  Little Frankie is now doing very well but will always require very special care.  She will remain at our sanctuary where she can receive all the special care she needs.

Gilby

gilby

– A humane investigator discovered Gilby in terrible condition at a California dairy farm.  The day old calf was destined to be slaughtered for veal.  Fortunately, the investigator was able to rescue Gilby and another calf, Darby, and we offered them both a permanent home at our sanctuary.  Gilby was very timid and weak but he gained strength from his companion Darby.  Both calves required bottle feedings of milk replacer several times a day.  They have now grown into very large steers.  Gilby is strongly bonded to Darby and he is still very dependent on his companionship.  Gilby is never anywhere but by his side.

Gertrude

gertrude

– We rescued Gertrude and her companion, Samantha, when we found out they were to be euthanized the next day.  The two hogs had been seized by animal control officers as part of a cruelty case.  However, homes are not easily found for two 500 pound pigs so we offered them lifelong care at our sanctuary.  When she arrived, Gertrude was in decent condition but she did experience some difficulty walking for long periods.  To help with her arthritis and to ease any discomfort, Gertrude receives special supplements and medications.   Gertrude is a sweet pig and even with her past abuse, she is very trusting.  Her favorite thing is to have her belly rubbed by visitors and volunteers.

Jake – Jake was rescued from a local animal control shelter before he was to be euthanized.  He was terribly skinny and completely terrified.  We brought Jake to our sanctuary and nursed him back to health.  He slowly gained weight but Jake is still learning to trust.  The abuse Jake suffered has had a strong effect on this young dog.  He may never completely trust humans again, but he feels safe at our sanctuary and he will always have a home here.

Daisy

daisy and friend 2

– This beautiful and sweet duck was found abandoned in a pond by animal control officers.  Daisy had most likely been purchased as a duckling and was no longer wanted as she grew into an adult duck.  But as a domestic duck, Daisy was not able to survive on her own.  We agreed to bring Daisy to our sanctuary.  Soon after her rescue, Daisy’s leg became extremely swollen.  She was diagnosed with a bacterial infection for which she was successfully treated.  Unfortunately, due to her the swelling, Daisy is now suffering from arthritis in her leg.  Daisy is currently undergoing physical therapy as well as laser therapy to help with her arthritic joint.  We are working hard to keep her comfortable and to help her heal.

Tobey – Tobey was rescued as a baby turkey from a local feed store.  He and a group of other turkeys were very sick and weak.  The feed store could not sell them and asked if we could care for them.   We provided the birds with constant care and with special feedings and medications.  Tobey survived but still has some health issues from his rough start.  But for the most part, Tobey is active and happy.  His favorite pastime is showing off for the lady turkeys.
