Donations for Animal Shelter

ICARE (Inyo/Mono County Animal Resources and Education) has partnered with Inyo County to construct a new Animal Shelter and Adoption Center in Big Pine. The existing shelter was constructed as a milk barn in the 1920s and was never intended to house companion animals. Our homeless pets deserve better.

ICARE and Inyo County have raised about $500,000 out of the $800,000 needed to construct the new shelter. In order to start work on the project, ICARE is asking animal lovers near and far to help raise the final $300,000. Although donations in any amount are welcome and needed, donations of at least $500 will be acknowledged on a Donor Recognition Wall in a prominent location at the new Animal Shelter and Adoption Center.

“Paw” recognition levels are as follows:

PLATINUM – $5,000 or more is enough for one dog kennel or two cat kennels.

GOLD – $2,500 is enough for one cat kennel

SILVER – $1,000

BRONZE – $500

Your gifts may be mailed to: ICARE – New Animal Shelter, Box 76, Bishop, CA  93515 or donations may be made via Paypal on-line at  Please call ICARE at 760-872-3802 with any questions.
