Please Contribute - 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 2016, our fourth year of operation, we've rescued and found permanent loving homes for 477 cats and dogs ... 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, which is approximately twice the amount that we can recover 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 cat or dog - $250 saves a life!
Your donation to PBJ is tax-deductible ... you will receive a thank you letter via U.S. mail for your tax file, and if you choose to donate online, you will also receive an automated email receipt for your donation.
