Sponsor a Sled Dog

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a sled dog!

When we started rescuing dogs back in 2002 we started out small, taking in only a handful who needed our help.

As we spread the word about our mission to help sled dogs in need, more came to our door requiring help, love and understanding.

With these new arrivals we also found more love and support within our community as individuals and businesses joined in to help strengthen our cause.

With this continuing support, in 2012 we were able to increase our sled dog carrying capacity and expand our land (from two acres to forty) becoming more efficient and offering new ways to rehabilitate sled dogs in need.

As we continue to grow, our sled dogs need your support now more than ever! What a great way to show your love by sponsoring a sled dog right here within the Sanctuary!

From permanent residents, retirees or those waiting for their forever home, every one needs your love and support...

Become a part of the team!

When you sponsor a Sanctuary sled dog not only will you be helping support a wonderful athlete in need, but you will also receive a our wonderful thank you package that includes a sponsorship certificate, a 5x7 photo of your sponsored sled dog and a 5x7 post card pack of our sled dog's favorite moments on the trail!

At the end of a years sponsorship we will send you an update on how your sled dog is doing, a new updated photo of their time here at the Sanctuary and a new photo pack of the current years best trail memories!

-- Would you like to sponsor a dog who is available for adoption? You can!

If your selected dog is adopted while you are sponsoring you can take pride in knowing that you supported a sled dog waiting for their forever home during their stay at the Sanctuary AND you will also have the option to make an even greater impact in choosing another dog to sponsor if your chosen dog is adopted during your sponsorship!

This means that we will send you a new sponsorship certificate and another 5x7 photo of your new sponsored dog at no extra cost!

What a great way to make a difference!

-- Sponsorship makes a great gift!

Upon checkout be sure to update the address you would like your sponsorship gifts to ship to as we help you celebrate your special occasion through this very special gift, a gift that keeps on giving for the precious life of a sled dog in need...

-- Is your favorite dog already sponsored?

No problem! We have now made it possible for any dog to have multiple sponsors!

Over the years we have received many requests to sponsor a particular dog people have grown to know and love but who had already been sponsored. Now we are making every dog available for sponsorship for everyone!

Worried about dogs still in need of sponsoring? Never fear! Here at the Sled Dog Sanctuary we make sure all funds are distributed equally. It is our job to make sure no sled dog goes without proper food, bedding, gear and treats. Every sponsorship adds up to the overall care for ALL sled dogs in the Sanctuary.

-- Can't decide on who to sponsor?

We know its tough to choose just one, they are all so wonderful in their own unique ways. If you cant decide on an individual dog, you can choose a kennel sponsorship!

With this choice you will receive our post card packet and a collection of some of our favorite photos of the Sanctuary sled dogs out on the trail having fun!
