You Can Save Lives: Please Consider Donating Today

In order to realize the goal of a no-kill county, we need the support and monetary contributions from people like you. We realize that it’s one thing to ask for money and say we have a plan, but it’s another to transparently outline the ways your donations will help our community solve the homeless pet problem.

Specific Goals

VOCAL was founded on the belief that change is possible when you partner with the community and unite them for a common goal. There is no easier way to unite people than to break a target into smaller objectives and share how their contributions can complete that objective.

Below you will see the areas and specific goals that VOCAL has outlined to unite Marion County in the No-Kill Mission. By clicking Contribute on a category, your donation will go towards the objectives in that group.

Help A Family

Sometimes pets end up at a local shelter because their owners experience a variety of circumstances that are beyond their control. This could be the loss of a job, illness or death of a family member, foreclosure, relocation or more.

Families typically do not want to part with their pets but they find themselves unable to provide and afford the needed care for their pets.

Here at VOCAL we want to help these local families be able to keep their pets, which is best for both the owner and their pets. Like you, we hate to see pets separated from their owners. This type of situation rarely ends well for the pet.

There are several ways you can assist us in helping local pet owners.

Tell Us About A Family In Need

If you know of a family who needs help to financially support their pets, please contact us at VOCAL. We will interview the family and help assess their needs. Through our website, social media accounts, newsletters and community connections, we will enlist support to help this family keep their pets.

Contribute To A Family In Need

If you’d like to help a family like this, you can donate directly to them through VOCAL. You can donate food and supplies for the pets. You can also donate money. We’ll make sure the funds you donate go directly to the purchase of food, supplies or medical care for the pet. Thank you in advance for contributing to this worthy effort.
