Five Acres Animal Shelter puts forth every effort to ensure the privacy and security of information that you share with us online.

We want your internet experience to be pleasant and free of spam and concerns about your private information.

We also urge you to take steps to protect the privacy of your personal information:

 Safeguard your passwords and log off of a website after submitting personal information. If you have broadband access to the Internet, we advise you to use a firewall. The link used to take donations is a highly secured third party environment, where you can read their policy statement.

Our privacy policy explains the information practices we use:

  • How we protect your information
  • How we use your information
  • How to contact us about privacy
  • How to unsubscribe

How do we protect your information?

Our computer systems have restricted access limited only to those persons and organizations necessary to its proper functioning. This access applies to all electronic and physical security measures. We do not sell your personal information to other organizations.

How do we use the information you provide?

We will occasionally use your email information to inform you of events or other programs we think would be useful and of interest to our community.

When you contribute money online

We use an outside company to process secure online donations. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond processing your donation. If you are uncomfortable using the internet to donate, please see our mailing address listed below.
