Sponsor a Pet

One of the most exciting ways to support Rancho Coastal Humane Society is a Pet Sponsorship. Do you love animals, but can’t adopt one right now? Would you like your donation to be a gift to yourself as well as to RCHS? When you sponsor one of the wonderful animals in our care, you will get updates about “your” pet, and be able to help in a very personal way. You’ll be the first person to find out when your favorite was adopted! (Well, yes… the pet’s new humans and our staff will know before you do, but still…). A Pet Sponsorship can also be a great gift for that special animal lover in your life! To find out more, click here.
