Honor Your Companion Animalís Legacy
Make a Tribute Gift on Behalf of a Friend
Share Your Love for Animals
Having to look into a companion animalís eyes and know that you cannot afford to pay for their needed medical care is one of the most heartbreaking situations any pet owner can ever face. To have to surrender a loved and cherished member of the family to a shelter because access to medical care is beyond an individual or familyís means is a situation no pet owner wants to consider. However, increasingly shelters are overflowing with animals whose owners cannot afford critically needed medical care. Most of these animals are euthanized.
The Pet Fund works to stop the flow of already owned and adopted animals into shelters due to lack of access to medical care. While spay and neuter programs reduce the number of stray and unwanted animals who end up in shelters, animal medical care does not end with spay and neuter surgeryóit begins with spaying and neutering. Spay and neuter services, although important, are not enough by themselves to keep animals out of shelters.
Where Our Funds Go
The Pet Fund is a volunteer organization, so almost all donations received go directly to fund needed medical care for companion animals. The Pet Fundís administrative costs are minimal, so with each donation we are able to share with the donor exactly which animal received their gift and which medical procedures were performed. The Pet Fund currently receives over 200 calls daily requesting veterinary cost assistance, so our wait list for pet owners needing help is always growing. Your contribution will directly benefit animals in need of medical care, and you may also specify what kind of medical conditions you would prefer to fund.
For example, The Pet Fund provides assistance for:

The Pet Fund Vision For The Future
Endowment funding enables nonprofits to provide consistent levels of services far into the future. Endowment funds are invested and the interest earned provides an ongoing source for funding for the endowed nonprofit. The chart example above depicts a 5% return on investment and the projected fiscal benefit for The Pet Fund.
Your gifts will help fund medical care for companion animals and will help thousands of pet owners to achieve financial sustainability in caring for their pets. The larger our fund grows, the more animals will be spared euthanasia or surrender to shelters.
The Impact of Your Gift
The Pet Fund helps animals beyond just making grants for medical care or helping to facilitate medical treatment. The biggest impact of the work of The Pet Fund is in helping pet owners to become self-sufficient in being able to keep their animals out of shelters through education about preventative care and financial planning. This education and outreach work benefits the community at large, which in turn helps communities achieve economic stability while ensuring increased health and well-being for all companion animals through preventing the spread of disease. This impact benefits all our companion animals as well as our collective economic stability.
