Animal Welfare and Protection Association

Sponsor a dog or cat

Are you a person who loves animals, and no longer can keep a dog or cat since you have moved to an
apartment or due to ill health or not having enough energy to devote towards rearing a pet at home?

Well the next best option to adopting a dog or cat , is to sponsor a dog or a cat , who has not
been adopted at our shelter.

Due to dumping of cats and dogs, low demand for local( non pedigreed) cats and dogs and as AWPA
shelters do not euthanize its residents, the shelters are over crowded. For many of the animals, the shelter would now become their permanent home.

Thus by sponsoring a dog or cat ( of your liking) you could help to provide for that animal during his/ her
stay at the shelter. You would also be able to come and see the pet and get to know him or her( by prior appointment)

Please sponsor me,

Cost of sponsoring one shelter dog/ cat per month       Rs1500/- ( aprox. us $12)
