Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to our ability to help those that need it the most! All funds collected through sponsorships and donations allow A4A to continue to help homeless animals, prevent pet death and homelessness through our spay/neuter programs, feed hungry animals (pet food donations always needed), educate our community and promote Canadian art. We also take in any items for donations as we sell them on our CAT-tic Treasures table or through online auctions. Just like the second hand cats that we adopt out, we believe these items can still find a home and be valued.

Sponsor a good deed: Starting at $10 and up, depending on the event. Pay the admission for a ticket to one of our fundraising events for a worthy individual that can’t afford to go. This “pay it forward” act, plus a logo or special note, will be advertised on social media to find someone deserving of an act of kindness. Help animals and people!

Sponsor a Cage: $25 - Your logo or personal note and picture are placed in a on a cage for 1 month at the A4A Adoption Centre. (Standard letter size paper with a protective sheet)

Sponsor a Table: $30 - Pay for a local artist or crafter to set up shop for a Saturday at the A4A Adoption Centre to show the community their talent.

Sponsor a Spay: $100 - Your logo or special note is posted on social media. Funds will be used to give the gift of a spay to an animal in need.

Sponsor an Event: Starts at $100 and up, depending on the event. There are lots of advertising opportunities on social and printed media. Contact us for detail of events currently in the works and sponsorship opportunities.

For the future, we will be looking to build a large facility to allow us to bring even more positive change to our community. If becoming a large scale contributor to a place that helps as many animals and people as possible sounds like something you want to be a part of please let us know.
