      The PATH FOR PAWS PROGRAM is the name for our shelters personalized, custom engraved memorial brick path.  The bricks that line the path represent symbolic milestones in the life of a person-pet-or special event.. While donors can quite literally, pave that path brick by brick, it’s the inscriptions on those bricks that makes the program so meaningful. Sterling Shelter’s PATH FOR PAWS Fundraising Campaign is underway and is ongoing YEAR ROUND. A permanent memorial and life-saving idea to celebrate your special holiday/s-birthday-graduation-weddings-births-anniversaries or just a great gift idea! YOU can Help us, help those who need us… Learn more about participating in this life saving program and order a custom brick today for your or someone you love with 2 legs or 4!

    • Make a direct monetary donation. Consider our Recurring Giving Program where a lot of small donations every month, really adds up for our organization.  Only .33 cents a day ($10 a month) can help our pets all year long.

      • CHECK OUT OUR NEW AMAZON WISHLIST  –  it’s donating made easy! – Our list of supplies is inexpensive and short, but an easy way for you to help US keep our furry friends happy during their stay with us Looking to donate items to help us keep our shelter and pets clean and happy? Starting Spring 2017 – Our shelter has added MULTIPLE groups of great shelters/rescues in the South – where they are completely overwhelmed with animals. We’ve been accepting (almost on a weekly basis) puppies/dogs – kittens and cats as space allows in our kennel. Sadly many of these shelters still euthanize due to space. With all these new groups we are working with we’ve completely depleted our stock of supplies that we use on a daily basis – all of which are inexpensive but important items to keep our furry friends healthy and clean. We’ve finally created our AMAZON WISH LIST – to make it really easy for donors and supporters to click on our WISH LIST LINK and see the items our shelter is in most need of.   We don’t care about the brands, sizes, cost of items or number of items donated…. any items on the list are much appreciated – from the furry friends and the staff.  We’ve even got a PRINTABLE DONATION WISH LIST – that you can easily print out and if your out and about and looking to donate items to help us keep our shelter and pets clean and happy!

  • Print our Sterling Shelter Poster (preferably with a color inkjet or laser printer) and post it on the bulletin board at work, at your local markets, the laundry mat, or any other place you think people will see it.

  • volunteerVolunteer You don’t have to open your wallet. Just your heart. Volunteering is a great way to improve the lives of our shelter pets, and we offer many ways for you to spend time with our animals. Quality time with shelter animals has a positive and long-lasting effect on their well-being. Show your compassion. Volunteer today! Our shelter always needs volunteers…and here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering: You’ll join a network of hundreds of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all animals.  You’ll make the jobs of everyone working for shelter animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership.   You will never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you have comforted.  Make lots of new friends – and not just the four legged kind.
