Welcome to probably one of the most important programs for VRC. Our monthly sponsorship program allows you to virtually “adopt” one of our dogs and help support he/she through a monetary donation that can either be deducted automatically through Paypal or you can send a good ole fashioned check.
There are several monetary options available through the drop down menu under each dog’s name. You can choose whichever fits your budget ($10, $15, $20, $25, $30, $40, $50, $100).
While most of our dogs are here awaiting a home, some are up for adoption but due to some behavioral issues, may take longer than usual to get a new home. This can be due to mental abuse, neglect, lack of socialization or pending medical conditions. In either case, our little four-legged buddies need a virtual friend.
We have also started the “Lonely Barks Club”, which are dogs that ARE up for adoption and have been with us for years but have never had anyone fill out an adoption application for them. So we decided to try and make them feel wanted and added them to our sponsorship program, with the hope that one of you will show them some love until they get a home of their own.
Then we have dogs that are sadly not adoptable due to severe medical conditions and in some cases, severe emotional distress and are not able to leave our facility. As much as we want all of our dogs to get a home of their own, it is simply and sadly, not possible.
For a monthly donation (you can pick the amount), on your initial introduction packet, you will receive a photo of your sponsored VRC pooch and also a signed postcard from Tia Torres, thanking you for your support. It is the monthly sponsorship donations that keep the rescue afloat. Without them, we could not keep our doors open and help the dogs that we all love so much.
Our sponsorship program can also make a great gift for those that can’t actually adopt a “real” pooch but instead can have a “virtual” companion. You can also send specific gifts for your sponsored dog. They love receiving their own presents!
