The Animal Sponsorships feature is a great way to raise funds to help support an animal. Visitors to your website can choose to send a donation earmarked for that specific animal, either one time, or as a recurring donation. Once you enable and configure this feature, visitors who view an animal with a sponsorship request will see a link to donate for that animal.

Where do I find it?

Animal Sponsorships are available from Animals > Sponsorships.
