You Can Help Stray Animals
Did you know an $8 donation can help save the life of a stray or unclaimed dog or cat at the Springfield Animal Shelter? We provide more than $25 worth of services like vaccinations and worm treatments to every animal coming into the shelter. Our rescue partners pay a small fee to offset that cost when they take animals out for adoption. You can reduce the rescue agencies' cost to zero, and donate other needed items, too. Find out how easy it is to help.
