Do You Know A Pet Owner In Need?

Champion A Pet

Shelters are bursting with pets surrendered by owners in dire financial straits who feel they have no other option. Champion A Pet’s mission is to help people and pets avoid that heartbreak. By spreading the word, you’ll bring together pet owners with no where else to turn and generous donors with the ability to help.

Act Now!

Why It Matters

Pet Owner and his DogEven when times are good, there are people struggling with pet care costs. Loss of a job, a house fire, medical bills, or a hundred other misfortunes can put a major strain on a family’s finances. But, when the economy takes a dip, more families are thrown into precarious positions. The evidence is there – many shelters are bursting with pets surrendered by distraught owners who can’t afford food, medical or other pet related expenses. Hopeless, these people feel there is no where else to turn.

Champion A Pet is working to solve that problem by building a social giving platform where people in a position to help can locate those in need. The generosity of complete strangers will allow pets to stay in loving homes with their families and at the same time alleviate the burden on the overcrowded shelters. We’re asking you to spread the word … to those in need and those who can help.
