Support Good Sam

Because we do not charge law enforcement or members of the community who bring in animals eligible for treatment under the Good Samaritan program, we rely solely on donations of supplies and funds to continue caring for these animals.

  • The Good Samaritan Animal Relief Fund receives NO state or federal funding.
  • Your financial support is greatly appreciated and fully tax deductible.

Good Sam relies on donations of funds and supplies to continue providing rehabilitation for wildlife and orphaned domestic animals. There are a number of ways you can help us continue caring for local animals in need, and all assistance is greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.


There are three easy ways to donate funds to Good Sam:

  • Send a pet store gift card
  • Send a check
  • Make a donation online

Checks can be made out to: Good Samaritan Fund

Checks and gift cards can be directed to:
