How to become a Member of VOTK?
How can you help the animals? By becoming an active member in our "family". Our organization is supported entirely by donations from folks like you. Our costs are increasing every day. We need your help!
Members of VOTK and their families enjoy visiting privileges on weekends, after 1:30 p.m. (Please take note of The Rules for Visiting.) Meeting the animals and getting to know them is a thrill you'll never forget. If you live too far to visit, you can also get to know everybody through our monthly newsletter, "The Pug Mark", which is sent free of charge to every member. Each month we try to profile one or more of the animals, with photos and stories to bring you up to date on all the recent happenings.
Would you like to join us in helping these animals? Just fill out our membership signup form (PDF)! You can be a member for as little as $75 for 6 months ($37.50 for seniors 62 & over). Or you can form a special relationship with an individual animal by joining our sponsor program. Heres a list of the animals that need sponsorship and animals already sponsored, along with the names of the wonderful folks who sponsor them.
At the bottom of the page, you will find a link to our Member Guide. This guide clearly states some of the most common questions that people may have about our organization. It also contains directions on how to get to our facility, the rules of the grounds and how this organization differs from a zoo.
