Sponsor a Pet

Not everyone is able to foster an animal, but you can still save a life! Our animals come from near and far. Overpopulated and underfunded, shelters often make limited and inaccurate adoptability assessments, putting many adoptable animals on euthanasia lists. Shelters are also often unable or unwilling to treat animals with special medical needs. We receive rescue pleas from shelters in Colorado, across the United States and even the world. We also receive surrender requests from pet owners due to illness or financial hardship.

By sponsoring an animal, you help us pull an animal from death row at a shelter or help an animal with emergent medical needs get treatment. A dog or cat that has no options as you are reading this page can have the hope of a second chance and of finding a loving forever home in the very next moment when you choose to sponsor now.

During checkout, please indicate in the message field the name of the dog or cat you would like to sponsor.


Pearl is an adorable, tiny chihuahua from Roswell, New Mexico. Pearl is in foster care and began whimpering pitifully last week. X-rays demonstrated that she has both a bad hip and a bum knee. She will definitely need surgery for her hip which is very bad and she may additionally need surgery on her knee. We don’t want this little girl to have to keep on crying, but surgery is expensive and Pearl needs YOUR help. Surgery for her hip and the physical therapy to follow will cost about $3,000. Pearl is only about a year old so has her whole life ahead of her. HELP PEARL today by sponsoring her here.


Sansa came to OutPaws in late early May from Gallup, New Mexico.  She had just had a litter of pups on May 4 and sadly, most of them had died. Her two tiny one week old puppies came with her and were doing well until late May. Around Memorial Day, Sansa and one of the pups came down with upper respiratory symptoms that turned out to be distemper. One of her remaining puppies died of the distemper, leaving Sansa sad and grieving. She recovered from the distemper and was doing well nurturing and caring for her one remaining pup. But then, she suddenly developed a hemorrhage in her eye called a hyphema. Sansa has been treated but continues to have ongoing issues with the eye and needs to see a specialist. To help Sansa get the medical treatment that she needs, sponsor her TODAY.


Archer is a beautiful, shy Corgi-mix girl who came from Roswell, New Mexico. She had received little, if any, attention at the shelter and the shelter workers didn’t even know her gender. When she arrived, we discovered that she has a large mass growing from her hindquarters that vets think may be cancerous. She needs to have the mass removed and biopsied and will undergo chest x-rays to determine if cancer has spread through her body. To help Archer get the medical support that she needs, sponsor her today.
