Frequently Asked Questions
With PetGiving, you can pre-fund the costs of care for a shelter animal in urgent need. While other donations to a rescue group may go to veterinary bills, business operations, and other overall efforts, your PetGiving dollars are directed to the point of need.

Rescue groups often struggle due to lack of funds. Many rescues have to limit taking in new animals because of the costs of the animals currently in their care. This is where you can help. Pre-funding helps encourage rescues to pull at-risk animals from shelters: They know they will have the means to care for an animal until they can place it with a new family. We think of it as crowdfunding to save a life.

Each shelter will need individuals willing to help showcase their animals in need. Please reach out to the shelter’s volunteer coordinator.
