YOU Can Make a Difference!


Pets Bring Joy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and, as such, receives no government funding; we rely entirely on donations from the public and grants from private foundations to carry out our mission.

As of 2018, our fifth year of operation, we've rescued and found permanent loving homes for over 1,400 cats and dogs ... we found 425 homes in 2018 alone! That's the good news; the bad news is that we incur, on average, $250 in veterinary and other expenses per cat while in our care. We are only able to recover $150 (60%) of those costs with our adoption fees; and, sometimes an emergency takes the cost for caring for a single animal into the $1,000's.

Thanks in advance for making a generous donation to Pets Bring Joy!  Rest assured that your donation will be used to help the animals in our care; here are some ideas of what your donation can cover:
  • $25 covers the cost to purchase and register a microchip for one cat or dog;
  • $50 covers the cost of vaccinations for one cat or dog;
  • $100 covers the cost of a spay/neuter surgery;
  • $250 covers the average veterinary expenses for a young, healthy cat or dog;
  • $500 covers the veterinary expenses for an older cat or dog, who often need wellness blood work and dental care in addition to other routine vetting;
  • $1,000 helps us to save a life when an emergency medical situation arises.
but of course any amount is appreciated!

We have several ways for you to donate:
  • If you'd like to make a cash donation, instructions are provided below.

  • If you'd like to sponsor a cat, perhaps as a gift for someone special, please visit our Virtual Foster page.

  • If you'd like to hang a heart to commemorate a loved one at our Catnip Haven (TM) cage-free adoption center, please visit our Hang a Heart - Help a Kitty page.
