Together We Can Provide A Better Life for Homeless Animals

Your Donation Can Change Lives

Lost Cove is a no-kill animal shelter and a non-profit, 501(c) 3 organization. We have no facility or paid staff.  Volunteer run only.  So 100% of fundraising and donations goes to the animals.

We provide food, shelter, medical treatment and loving care until homeless animals can find their forever home. We make a promise to any animal who comes through our doors:  they will never be homeless again. We hope our temporary residents will find a loving home with a lifelong companion or a loving family; but if they never find that home, they are welcomed into the Lost Cove family.

Please help us save the lives of these wonderful animals by making a tax-deductible

(tax ID: 82-4584738) donation today.

We are listed on Guidestar and earned the 2019 Gold Seal of Transparency. To view our Guidestar profile and annual financials, please click the Seal of Transparency on the right.


One-Time Donation

We are very careful with every donation to maximize the number of animals we can save.  Even though our adoption fees do not cover all the costs associated with our rescues, we never want to turn away a dog or cat based on their medical needs. Instead, we fight tooth and nail to support our animals in every way that we can. We can only do this with your help! 


Monthly Donation

Our monthly donor options are a great way to continue to show your support for Lost Cove Animal Sanctuary!  Once you set up your automatic monthly donations, your contributions will be automatically sent to Lost Cove without you having to even think about it. You can easily cancel your recurring donation at any time. Each monthly gift is tax-deductible. Your monthly commitment allows Lost Cove to plan ahead and use resources wisely.



Special Needs Donation

We pride ourselves on helping animals with extraordinary needs beyond the usual routine medical care. We highlight these needs in our Medical Spotlight section. You will be able to read their stories, learn what makes their needs special, be able to donate towards their cause and see exactly where your donation goes.

Sampson is a stunning 2-year-old and 97-pound Perro de Presa Canario, also know as a Canary Mastiff. This breed is a rare large Molosser-type dog. Sampson is a mellow, super sweet and loving boy, who wants to be near his people all the time. He will only be placed in a home that has large bully-breed experience. He tested well with other dogs but he needs slow-introductions to ensure success. He cannot live with cats. Sampson is a curious boy! He got into the bathroom tub all by himself to check it it. He will need gentle positive-reinforcement training. A quiet home, with older children and with a fenced-in yard is ideal. Sampson can be walked but he does pull. He also rides well in cars. 

Sampson recently suffered from seizures, so we are working with our vets to help him. He, in turn, can use your help!
