To Donate

We need your help. The Pet Fund is supported by donations from individuals, corporate sponsorships, and foundation grants. Your contribution will have a significant impact on the lives of companion animals and their owners.

Your donations save lives. As the cost of veterinary care continues to rise, more help with medical funding is needed. Each donation increases the funds available for animal medical care assistance.

Help keep animals out of shelters. In donating to The Pet Fund, you will be both helping to keep pets out of shelters and affecting the welfare of animals far into the future. We appreciate your generosity and your devotion to companion animals.

At age twenty-two, Julie Barton was living her childhood dream: living in New York City, working at a publishing company, and surrounded by a group of interesting and supportive friends. Yet, a year into her dream life, Julie had a complete breakdown, collapsing on her kitchen floor and barely having the strength to call her mom for help. After weeks of intervening by her parents, psychiatrists, and medication, Julie decided to try a different kind of therapy: bringing home a Golden Retriever puppy she named Bunker that changed her life forever. With him by her side, she decided to try again at life and love.
