  • Dry Cat Food-Purina Pro Plan Inodor Care Turkey and Rice Formula.  This food is available at PetSmart and on our Amazon Wish List

Monetary Donations

Our organization is run entirely on private donations! There are many different ways to give and programs/missions to support.

  • Sponsor The Critter Cottage - Our monthly sponsors allow us to operate our adoption/outreach center in Ada, Michigan. Your gift is recognized on building signage.
  • Buddy's Big Fix Fund - This program is dedicated to providing aggressive veterinary care to animals in urgent need
  • Golden Paws - This program focuses on the heartbreaking plight of senior animals who find themselves abandoned and alone. Every $500 raised for Golden Paws saves a senior pet from an animal shelter and provides the special care they often require until a new, loving home can be found.
  • General donations - Donations of ANY size are appreciated! and EVERY dollar makes a difference.

You can send your donations to:

Vicky's Pet Connection
PO Box 624
Ada, MI 49301

OR, you can donate via PayPal
