Grant Supporters of Stafford Animal Shelter in 2019-2020

Stafford Animal Shelter kindly thanks the following supporters who have provided grants to the shelter in 2019 & 2020 to help finance the shelter’s programs and operational expenses. We could not be there for the animals without the support of these generous foundations and organizations. Thank you!




  • Mildred Y Manion Charitable Foundation

  • Yvonne Mansfield Animal Welfare Fund

             Thank you to everyone for your support!

Special Funds

Rosie, namesake of the fund
Rosie, namesake of the fund

If you would like to give to a specific cause, consider one of the following:

The Rosie Fund was created to heal animals suffering from severe treatable medical conditions.

The Senior Assistance Program is a legacy created by Gene Barbieri to help senior citizens pay for medical care for, and keep, their beloved pets.

The Seniors for Seniors Program allows senior citizens to adopt senior animals for no adoption fee.

The Guardian Angel Fund supports the care of animals that we board in situations of domestic violence and emergency evacuations as well as animals we accept from abuse and hoarding situations.

The Open Arms Fund supports rescues from other overfull or euthanasia Shelters, rescue groups, and emergency situations where we open our doors and arms to these pets whenever we have space and provide medical care, spay/neuter surgeries, socialization and match them with forever homes.

Cat’s Classic Fund started in 2019 by Cat Moody and family and friends, this fund sponsors the adoption fees for long-term senior cats 8 years+ to encourage adopters to take a second look at these often overlooked shelter felines.

Give securely online with the form to the right, or send your check with which fund you’d like to support to: Stafford Animal Shelter, 3 Business Park Road, Livingston, MT 59047. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

Pay Tribute

Is there a greater gift to give than a second chance at life and love? Pay tribute to a special person or pet by helping animals in need. Celebrate milestones and holidays – birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations – with a donation to shelter pets on behalf of someone you love; it will be memorable, meaningful and make a difference!

Honor the memory of a beloved person or pet with a donation to animals who will thrive because of your gift. Honorees will be listed on our memorial boards, on the Honorees section of our website, newsletter, and a personal letter announcing your generosity will be sent to those you’d like notified. For all honorary gifts totaling $1,000 or more, a photo of the beloved can be included on the website memorial page and newsletter.

Give safely online with the form to the right, or send your check with the honoree name, occasion and contact information of those you’d like us to notify to: Stafford Animal Shelter, Attn: Tribute, 3 Business Park Road, Livingston, MT 59047. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
