Help animals in need.


Better Together Animal Alliance is a nonprofit that depends on private donations to fund our work. When you donate to us, you are helping to save the lives of homeless pets in our community and helping to keep pets in loving homes by supporting our innovative community-based programs that support animals and people.


Sometimes a pet can stay at BTAA for quite some time before finding the perfect home. You can help them connect with a loving home faster by sponsoring their adoption fees! 


Monthly donors give Better Together Animal Alliance a consistent income stream to help animals in need. You can join this program for as little as $5.00 per month. Your donations go where they are needed most and as a monthly donor, you’ll receive quarterly stories about animals you’ve helped. Become a monthly donor today.


Leaving a gift in your will, estate, or trust is a wonderful way to support Better Together Animal Alliance. We have special ways of recognizing all gift levels. To learn more about ways we can recognize your gift, or how your gift can be directed to make a meaningful impact, contact Paige McGowan, Development Director, at [email protected]. If you choose to include Better Together Animal Alliance as a future beneficiary, please be sure to notify us of your plans.
