Kennel Camp Out 

We are still raising money for our Kennel Camp Out. Tim and Eric have surpassed $1,000 earning them an air freshener to have when they camp out. We also have a new competitor, Cam, that could use some help getting caught up. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 for special needs animals no matter how long it takes. If you would like to donate to Shadow's Fund and see the guys camp out in a dog kennel or cat condo, click the donate button below. 
Thank You Petco Foundation!
Thank you to the Petco Foundation for awarding Five Acres Animal Shelter with a $10,000 grant to support our spay/neuter efforts. Our mission is to end pet homelessness, promote responsible pet ownership and advocate for animal welfare and one major way we can accomplish all three is by spaying and neutering the cats and dogs that we find loving homes for. In 2016 Five Acres Animal Shelter sent 910 animals to forever homes and 663 required spay or neuter surgeries. Because of support from donors and grants like this from the Petco Foundation we have the ability to provide veterinary care and spay/neuter surgeries for all of the animals we care for giving them a better chance at a long and healthy life.
