Sponsorship Program

Dear Feline Friends!

Welcome to our Sponsorship Program. We created this program for people who want to become more involved with Miko Animal Rescue and Sanctuary (MARAS), who believe in our work, and who want to become part of our cat’s lives. The sponsorship program helps us to continue with our rescue efforts, to rescue more animals, and to make sure that we can give our animals the ideal care they need and deserve. Caring for and maintaining these animals is time consuming and expensive. We make sure that all of our cats are up-to-date with their shots, all are altered, and all are negative for feline AIDS/leukemia. We need your continued support to continue making a difference in so many lives.

If you decide to become a sponsor, you not only become a part of MARAS, you also make a difference, and not only for the animal(s) you sponsor, but also because we will be able to go ahead and rescue another one.

There will be only one sponsor (or sponsor party) for each animal until he or she is adopted. This can take as little as one month, but it can also take a lot longer. You also don't have to sponsor alone. You can ask your friends, family members, or co-workers if they are interested in a joint sponsorship. This would decrease the costs for each individual member and would be a wonderful and meaningful team-effort. We take our sponsors very seriously, and want you to enjoy your sponsorship as much as possible. But we also ask you, once you decide to participate, to take this commitment seriously.

We hope that the following sponsorship program is appealing to you, and that, in case you decide to become a part of MARAS, you enjoy your new role as a sponsor as much as we will enjoy to welcome you on board!

We love to hear from you!

IMPORTANT: Sponsorship enrollments start on the 1st and the 15th of every month. Therefore, sponsorship fees are due at the 1st and/or the 15th, depending on when the sponsor started their sponsorship. If you are interested in one of the following, please e-mail MARAS. Please write "Sponsorship" in the subject line.

The sponsor can choose the cat he/she wants to sponsor.

The sponsor fee is just $8.00 per month and makes all the difference in the world to our precious creatures. Some sponsors think it’s easier to pay 6 or 12 months at a time. 6 months = $48.00, 12 months = $96.00. This ensures the food, cat litter and veterinary care for one cat for up to one year. If a sponsor's cat is adopted and they have paid in advance, they will either receive a refund, or they may sponsor another cat.

The sponsor will receive:

  • A Photograph of the Cat;
  • A Sponsor Certificate;
  • Regular updates;
  • The sponsor will be mentioned with name, State, and/or e-mail address on our "Cats for Adoption" webpage. (optional)
