Sponsor a Pet

As a Pet Godparent at Phinney’s, you help a pet whose parent is struggling financially. Your donation provides food, enrichment, and vet care for the pet of your choice. If you become a monthly sponsor, you’ll get quarterly updates on your chosen pet. Here are some examples of what your donation will give:

  • $10-20 – one package of dog or cat food
  • $100 – food, treats, and toys for a pet for 3 months
  • $250 – annual vet visit, vaccines, and flea/tick preventative for a year
  • $600 – minor procedure, such as dental work
  • $2K – prescription food and medication for a year

Bless a pet with your kindness! Press DONATE to make a donation or SUBSCRIBE to donate monthly. You may cancel your monthly membership at any time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where exactly does my money go?

Your donation gets deposited into Phinney’s PayPal account. Because each pet has their own unique PayPal “button,” we know which pet each donation is intended for. Your donation goes directly toward the care for that pet. Phinney’s provides food, toys, treats, cat litter, and pays for vet care and boarding fees (sometimes needed if owners are sick in the hospital and if we don’t find a foster).

What happens if a pet receives more money in donations than they need?

The extra funds will be kept aside for that pet. In the rare case that we may get excess funds that we anticipate the pet will not need for the next year (accounting for possible emergencies), the funds may assist another pet in the Godparent program who is going through a life-threatening situation.

How long can I be a godparent for my selected pet?

You can support your God pet throughout his entire life. If at any time the pet no longer needs Phinney’s assistance, we will let you know. You may choose another pet in need if you’d like.

How do I cancel my monthly donation?

You may cancel at any time by going to your PayPal account and selecting to unsubscribe. If you have any problems, please let us know by emailing us here.


We are temporarily unable to receive donations via PayPal or credit card.
