What will my donation support?

Your donations help fund OPA’s life saving programs. See our financial statements here.

OPA’s Foster/Adoption program provides animals in its care with food, shelter, veterinary care and the promotion and matching necessary to find a forever family. OPA’s Trap, Neuter, Return of Feral Cats and Targeted Spay and Neuter programs help to dramatically limit the number of homeless dogs and cats entering our local shelters. Both programs require funds for low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, equipment and transportation charges.

Finally, OPA’s Flight for Life and Pups on Trucks programs require a sponsorship for each transport candidate. There are also additional costs associated with preparing each candidate to travel (basic vetting and a health certificate).

What are other ways I can get involved?

See more ways you can get involved here:


Our organization could not exist without volunteers. As a private, non-profit organization, we rely on the assistance of caring and hard-working volunteers in all of our programs. Volunteers who work directly with the animals can increase an animal’s chances of adoption by providing additional human contact. Volunteers also help us inform the community of the aims and objectives of OPA and promote responsible pet ownership. We are all working for the animals!

If you are interested in working with us on any of the above or in any way, please contact us at

What if I have another question?

If you have another question that isn’t answered here, send us an email at or see more FAQ here.

A big thank you to some of our recent donors!
