Support Us

With so many different ways to give back to your Upstate community, why sponsor an Izzie’s Pond project?

The rapid development in our region means an increase in human-wildlife encounters. Business owners call us when they find raccoons unable to climb out of their dumpsters, Canada geese injured in their parking lots, or ducks dumped in ponds on company property.

Your customers care about animals, so trapping or killing the animals you find can result in negative publicity and loss of business. Partnering with a rescue like Izzie’s Pond demonstrates your stewardship and investment in your community.

We offer many different opportunities for your organization to sponsor projects, events, and animals:

IZZIE’S POND

Izzie’s Pond is a non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. All donations to Izzie’s Pond are deductible. Our tax identification number is 80-0922846.

According to OurUpstateSC.info:

  • In the last two decades, the region’s population has grown to more than 1.3 million.
  • If current projections are realized, by 2030 the region will have more than 1.6 million residents.

Growth leads to an increase in human-wildlife encounters. Will you help us to steward the Upstate ecosystem?

Care & Rehab Facilities

To run smoothly, Izzie’s Pond needs to build and maintain facilities to support our intakes’ wellbeing. For branding and/or naming rights, you can purchase materials and/or provide volunteer labor to build

Eight species-specific enclosures will support raccoons, foxes, bobcats, deer, and other wild animals to prepare them for release back into nature.

Six aviaries will separately support wild ducks, domestic ducks, pigeons and doves, Canada geese, and birds of prey.

Our educational center will teach adults and children alike about the place of all our species in the Upstate’s ecosystem, and what humans can do to sustain them.

Our intake hospital will allow us to track, assess, quarantine, and treat new arrivals.

Enclosures and habitats will enable permanent resident educational animals to live in a natural environment, sheltered from predators.

Field Trips & Educational Visits

Fund classroom visits, school or senior activity trips, or homeschool field trips. By sponsoring trips to our property or our visits to schools, you’ll allow us to reach out to all Upstate residents who want to learn more about animal rescue and our environment.

Children miss out when their families cannot afford for them to go on field trips with their classes. When your business funds a field trip, you allow children to visit our Liberty property regardless of means — or even allow us to visit Upstate schoolchildren in their classrooms. We welcome groups of both home- and classroom-schooled children!

Seniors also thrive when they have the chance to visit new locations and learn new things. By sponsoring senior center trips, your business can help seniors to avoid isolation and provide caregivers with needed down time.

When you sponsor ongoing vaccine supplies, your business is directly contributing to that species’ herd immunity in the Upstate. This helps to reduce the risk of diseases like rabies and distemper afflicting both wild and domestic animals.

“Adopt” a wild fox, raccoon, bobcat, or other animal at intake. Izzie’s Pond takes in upwards of 800 animals per year! Your support will provide the animal(s) with vaccines against a variety of diseases, as well as any veterinary care for injuries, high-quality species-specific food, and other rehabilitation activities until the animal’s release.

It takes a lot to rehabilitate a wild animal! From standard vaccines given for common afflictions such as rabies and distemper, to medical treatment for the injuries and illnesses they arrive with, to the specialized baby formula or feed needed for their daily survival (yes, there is such a thing as baby raccoon formula!), the costs of care can run into the thousands.

Your business might opt to sponsor an animal found on your property, or your employees may decide as a group which animal they’d like to chip in to support as a group. Your support means that the animal you choose will reenter the Upstate ecosystem healthier and with a better chance of survival. This helps to maintain the delicate ecological balance in our growing region.

Structural Maintenance Projects

Being open to the public means complying with a number of federal and state regulations to keep both animals and humans safe. Appropriate boundaries enable humans to learn while animals rehabilitate — the very essence of humane coexistence.

For branding and/or naming rights, you can purchase materials and/or provide volunteer labor to build:

  • Species-specific, USDA-compliant male and female enclosures provide safe spaces for animals that mimic their natural environment while they are healing and learning to hunt, forage, and interact with one another away from humans.
  • USDA- and ADA-compliant railings and walkways ensure that humans have full mobility throughout Izzie’s Pond, while maintaining safe distances that respect animals’ space. This will enable us to welcome children, people with disabilities, and senior citizens to learn and share equally in our sanctuary.
  • Well-maintained perimeter fences keep animals safely within Izzie’s Pond property — and predators out.

Izzie’s Pond Commercial Greenhouse & Kitchen

When you help us to build and maintain our commercial greenhouse and kitchen, you’re supporting our plan to teach sustainability and environmental awareness to Upstate children, who will in turn grow to become healthier and more ecologically responsible adults.

We’ll give kids opportunities to learn how to garden and prepare the food they grow. They’ll be able to take home their preparations and contribute to their own families. Our plan for a fully functional gourmet kitchen includes trained professional staff and basic kitchen safety education.

We’ll also teach children how to coexist and even benefit from wildlife in their efforts. Rather than view opossums, groundhogs, deer, and other animals as nuisances, we’ll educate them about the animals that eat harmful insect life, how to encourage more of those animals into a garden, and how to protect their gardens from less beneficial animals.
