Cage Sponsorship plaques make a great gift for friends and family, in memoriam of a furry friend or show of support from local businesses. Plaques can be purchased in two sizes, 7 x 9 & 9 x 12. Proceeds go into our Best Friend's Medical Relief Fund which serves to medically treat the sick and injured strays that come to our shelter. Order one both online or mail in your registration.
