Your financial donations to St. Francis Animal Rescue are always appreciated.They help us purchase supplies and provide veterinary care for our animals.

We choose to have elective surgeries done on animals to save or to improve the quality of the animal's life. These animals otherwise might be euthanized due to the expense of the surgery. Because of this our veterinary bills can be very high!

Donations of money are used directly for animal care including: spaying and neutering costs, vaccinations, dentals, surgeries, and Heartworm treatment as needed for the well being of each animal.

On-line donations can be made through PayPal or by credit card. Click the PayPal Donation button on the left of the screen and follow the easy instructions to make a donation.
