Giving Tuesday 2021

Join us this year for Giving Tuesday and support Elderly Pets.


Each year, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters: 3.3 million are dogs and 3.2 million are cats. Because many shelters are continuously overcrowded, more than 1.5 million of these animals will be euthanized: 670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats are euthanized each year. 

When a pet is surrendered to a shelter, their fate is completely unknown. Some pets spend months, to years in a shelter, waiting to be adopted. Oftentimes, the stress of being in a shelter can change a pet’s personality, making it more difficult (and sometimes impossible) for them to be adopted. 

Our goal is to end senior pet abandonment and help keep pets out of shelters. Your gift provides tools and resources to help spare these at-risk senior pets.
