In Memory and In Honor Giving 

In memory and in honor gifts are personalized ways for you to pay tribute to or acknowledge a special person, pet, occasion, or event and help Little Shelter continue to save animals in need. 

Memorial Gifts - An in memory gift is a meaningful way to commemorate the life of a beloved family member, special friend, or dearly loved pet. The recipient of your gift will receive a card announcing that an "in memory" donation has been made to Little Shelter with the name of the deceased and your name.
