They do it all; everything from basic obedience and house breaking to food aggression and socialising the animals. It’s the best program around for our four-legged friends without homes. Pet supplies The League has an online and on-site pet supply store for everyone to use. They are staffed by animal professionals and can answer questions correctly and recommend products necessary for an animals’ care and well being. All the profits made from this store go right into the center to continue the good work being done currently.
Sponsorship program They have a sponsorship program where people can offer to pay the expenses of one animal (or more) in the shelter. They are kept abreast of the animal’s progress until they either quit paying, or the animal is adopted. It is the best place for a homeless animal, and animals adopted from the League come to new homes clean and ready for love.
