SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM – ANIMAL FRIENDS JOGJA

Every year, dozens of dogs and cats are rescued from abuse and abandonment by AFJ volunteers. With limited financial resources, AFJ endeavours to increase quality of life for these rescued animals until the time when they find a new loving family and forever home. However, as a non-profit organization with only limited funding, we understand the enormous responsibility of having to provide for the care and needs of these rescued animals.   One way that AFJ has overcome this challenge is the AFJ Animal Sponsorship Program.

With this program, we hope that both animal lovers and the general will take an active role in helping AFJs vision and mission by sponsoring the animals at the AFJ sanctuary.  As a sponsor, the funds donated each month will be used for medical treatment, medicines, and the daily needs of the rescued animals. Many people would love to have a four-legged companion in their homes or would like to make a practical contribution to the lives of the AFJ rescue animals but for various reasons this isn’t possible.  AFJ’s Animal Sponsorship Program is the solution. By sponsoring an animal through AFJ’s Animal Sponsorship Program, you are committing to routinely finance the lives of the animals at AFJ’s sanctuary.  In particular, for those who live in Jogja and surrounding areas, you can also be involved in the everyday care of the animal you choose to sponsor.  This program is a great option for those who want a four-legged companion but is not able to care for an animal at home.

WHO WILL YOU HELP ?

As a sponsor, you will help animals who has been rescued from abused case, cruelty, dumped, and other non-human reason. They are now treated and fostered in our temporary house while waiting for you to adopt.To find out how to adopt an animal from AFJ, please visit this link.

What is this Sponsorship Program actually ? 

  1. Sponsorship/Sponsor Parent (SP)
    In this program, you are asked to help finance the food, medical care (medications, e.g. worm treatment; multivitamins; and yearly vaccinations), grooming, flea and tick eradication, etc. The animals rescued by AFJ, generally have problems with their physical condition and one of the most common is a skin condition, such as demodex, scabies, fungus or fleas/ticks that cause unbearable itchiness. To combat this, we treat them with shampoos or other safe medications to try and prevent their skin conditions and stop them from getting worse, and provide some routine therapy with special shampoos and other treatments to help minimize the symptoms.There are two options for this program:

    • Sponsor a Selected Animal
      Choose the animal you wish to sponsor for a particular period of time.
    • Sponsor an Anonymous Animal
      If you’d like to sponsor an AFJ rescue animal but don’t really mind which one, AFJ will choose one for you.

    Sponsor fees are as follows:

    • For Dogs USD70 / month
    • For Cats USD40 / month

    If you’d like to join with others to sponsor an AFJ rescue animal, you can do a collective sponsorship.  However, if you choose this option, you’ll need to find your own sponsorship partners and all transfers must be done from 1 (one) account to simplify our financial tracking and record keeping.
