The Sunshine Fund is an ongoing chip-in to help the dogs and cats rescued by The Animal League who have special medical needs.
Broken bones, puppies with parvo, skin diseases...all part of our everyday shelter life. With rising veterinary costs and so many pets in need, we appreciate any donation to our Sunshine Fund. Because of our generous supporters, we can help save animals that require extensive veterinary care.
February 12, 2018 - Almost 50 pets, ranging from skin and urinary tract infections to broken bones and critical life-threatening illness have been cared for in 2018 so far. The need for your donation has never been greater!

More about the Sunshine Fund
The Sunshine Fund helps the pets who come to The Animal League with injuries and illnesses that are beyond normal circumstances. These are the sick, abused, and abandoned pets we take in and nurse back to health. Most require surgeries other shelters would not be willing to provide and we can't do it without your support!
In April 2014, The Animal League was asked to help with a sad case involving rescuing 14 small breed dogs living in poor conditions. These dogs suffered from a variety of medical conditions and ailments. These ailments included severe eye and ear infections, glaucoma, skin infections, flea and tick infestations and severe dental disease. A few of the dogs were scared and unsocialized. We accepted this huge undertaking and asked for your support in helping provide the medical care they so desperately needed.
Tilly is a 4 month old schnauzer who was brutally mauled by a bigger dog sustaining severe injuries to her leg including three fractures. We were able to take her in and get her the treatment she needed due to your generosity in contributions to our Sunshine Fund.
Thanks to your help, we have been able to take in so many Sunshine Fund dogs and cats this year. Please consider giving a tax deductible contribution to our Sunshine Fund this Holiday Season to help these beautiful pets in such great need.
Why The Sunshine Fund Started: The Story of Sunshine
This one-year-old shy and sweet spaniel-mix should have been lavishing someone with puppy kisses and love. Instead, she had a terrible case of mange and was scheduled to be euthanized on a bright spring morning. The Animal League’s Adoption Center was full but we asked Animal Control for an extra day to give us time to find a solution…That extra day was granted!
Lots of wonderful people hustled to try and help but things were still uncertain. The end of the day drew near and we scrambled harder… With a little shuffling within our adoption center, we were able to fit her in. This was a really close call for a sweet little dog and we decided to call this precious baby, Sunshine, and the Sunshine Fund was born.
