If you'd like to donate to the homeless cats and dogs awaiting adoption at Small Miracles, consider shopping online for the animals. We have started a wish list at Amazon.com. Items range in price from $5 on up. We've listed necessities, as well as some creature comforts and special treats for our furry friends. Items can be purchased online and shipped directly to the shelter, saving you a trip! Our top requested item right now is AvoDerm wet cat food. Thank you on behalf of all the animals in our care!
Do you love animals and want to get involved in rescue work? Small Miracles has several volunteer opportunities to fit various levels of commitment.
We are currently seeking volunteers to grow our foster home network. Fostering is a rewarding experience where you temporarily house animals in need in your own home until they are ready for adoption. Foster animals include pregnant dogs/cats, nursing dogs/cats and their litters, dogs/cats recovering from injuries or dogs/cats in need of socialization. We recommend having a separate area in your home to care for foster pets; a spare bedroom, bathroom or laundry room works great. The shelter provides all medical care and dry food. Foster homes provide wet food, litter for the kitties, bedding and daily care of the animals. Supplies you purchase to care for foster animals may be tax deductible.
We are also seeking volunteers for shelter and partner pet store operations. Volunteers are needed for cleaning cages, walking dogs, facilitating adoptions and showing dogs at pet stores on weekends.
Due to insurance regulations, volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
To fill out a foster/volunteer application, visit the Volunteer page.
Small Miracles offers low-cost microchipping for your cat or dog. Cats and dogs adopted from the shelter can receive the microchip, implantation and lifetime registration with no annual fees for a one-time cost of $30. We also offer microchipping for all other animals in the community for $40.
Microchips do not hurt your pet, do not require surgery and never wear out. They are inserted with a routine shot between the shoulder blades. If your pet ever becomes lost and is brought to an animal control facility, shelter or veterinarian, your pet will be scanned for a chip. In combination with a collar and tags, microchips give a lost pet the best chance for a happy homecoming. Stop by during adoption hours on Saturdays or call 410-274-3530 to make an appointment on another day.
Small Miracles has an online shop at CafePress where you can purchase T-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, bumper magnets, dog clothing and more. We have sizes from baby and kids to adult and plus size. For each item purchased, $5 is donated to the shelter. So check out our shop today. Small Miracles swag makes an excellent holiday gift!
