SPONSOR A PET PROGRAM
For our 20th Anniversary, we have created a new program to help pets and their people – the Sponsor a Pet Program!
Each pet that is a part of our program requires anywhere from $250 to $2000 worth of food and veterinary care each year. Without your donations, we would not be able to provide funds for much needed care for these adorable, deserving pets!
As a sponsor, you will help a person or family who is struggling to provide for their beloved friend. Your donation will provide food, enrichment, and veterinary care for a pet in need. You can choose to sponsor through a monthly donation or a one-time donation.
If you choose to become a monthly sponsor, you will receive biannual updates (every 6 months) on your sponsored pet and their family. To receive these updates, please provide your preferred contact information to email@example.com (e-mail or street address) once you subscribe as a monthly sponsor.
With your sponsorship, Phinney’s Friends can provide a long, happy life for more pets! Please consider becoming a sponsor today!
Here are some examples of what your donation will provide:
- $10 per month for a year or a $125 one-time donation will cover treats and toys for a pet.
- $20 per month for a year or a $250 one-time donation will cover an annual vet visit, vaccines, and flea/tick preventatives.
- $50 per month for a year or a $600 one-time donation will cover a minor procedure (such as a dental).
- $150 per month for a year or a $2000 one-time donation will cover emergency veterinary care or surgery.
To sponsor a pet, choose from the list below. You may select the DONATE button to make a one time donation, or the SUBSCRIBE button to become a monthly donor. You may cancel your monthly membership at anytime.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where exactly does my money go?
Your donation gets deposited directly into the Phinney’s Friends’ Pay Pal account. Because each pet has their own unique Pay Pal “button,” we will be able to see which pet each donation is intended for. We keep a close record of how many donations each pet has received, and all donations go directly to providing care for the pet. Phinney’s Friends provides food, toys, treats, and cat litter, and also pays for veterinary care and boarding fees (often needed if owners are sick in the hospital).
What happens if a pet receives more money in donations than they need?
They extra funds will either be kept aside for that pet if it is anticipated that the funds will be used (as a reserve for emergencies or, for example, if the pet is due for a veterinary visit or procedure such as a dental). If there are excess funds that we do not anticipate the pet will need for the next year (accounting for possible emergencies), the funds will go to assist other pets. So far, none of the pets in our sponsorship program have received enough funds to cover the cost of their annual care.
How long can I sponsor a pet?
If you choose the monthly sponsorship program, you can sponsor your selected pet indefinitely. If at any time your sponsored pet no longer needs Phinney’s Friends’ assistance, we will notify you and you can select another pet to sponsor, or you may cancel.
How do I cancel my monthly sponsorship?
You may cancel at any time by going to your PayPal account and selecting to unsubscribe to the program. If you are having trouble with this, please contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I receive update on my sponsored pet?
If you become a monthly sponsor and would like to receive updates on your sponsored pet, please provide your preferred contact information to email@example.com (e-mail or street address). You will receive updates every 6 months until you cancel your sponsorship.
