About Phinney’s Friends

We do everything in our power to make sure animals and their beloved owners can stay together.

Our volunteers educate pet owners, take pets to the vet, foster animals when owners are hospitalized, walk dogs and care for cats. Donations help us buy pet food and supplies, and assist low-income people with vet bills and boarding.

The most common services we provide are…

  • Advice on pet care

  • Dog care (walks, nail clipping, brushing)

  • Cat care (litter box changing, nail clipping, brushing)

  • Financial help with vet care

  • Emergency pet food and supplies

  • Pet fostering and boarding

  • Pet transportation

As you can see, Phinney’s Friends helps pet owners in many ways. Some need regular support, some need help only once.

EverCare Program

Assists pet owners living with chronic illnesses or disabilities, or owners who have pets with chronic issues. We help with monthly visits, with litter box cleaning, dog walking, nail trims, administering medications to pets, and fostering while their owners are hospitalized.

Also offers financial help with regular vet checks, pet medications, tests, emergency vet bills and boarding.

Pet Boost Program

Distributes pet food and supplies to cats and dogs whose owners are going through a financial hardship that requires ongoing help for a period of time. These families are not necessarily struggling with a disabling illness, but may have lost their job or fled from an abusive household.

This program also offers financial help with regular vet checks, pet medications, tests, emergency vet bills and boarding for these families.

Emergency Program

Helps with one-time needs to solve problems that are putting the pet is at risk of being euthanized or surrendered. This could be a vet bill, pet surgery, boarding, dog license, etc. This program also offers fostering for up to 3 months.
