Through the help of generous people, Pets In Need has been providing life-saving services and programs for the animals and people in our community since 1965. Pets In Need is not a United Way Agency. We do not receive any local, state or federal funding from tax dollars. Our humane work is made possible by people who care. Pets In Need also respects our donors' privacy. We have never sold or shared any donor information, and we will never do so.

At Pets In Need, no dog or cat suitable for re-homing is ever put to death... matter how long it takes.

Pets In Need shelters some puppies and kittens, but we specialize in the more difficult to place animals who would be killed at other shelters. Because an animal has aged a bit or may have lost a limb or may have a medical condition requiring treatment is not a justifiable excuse for killing.

We believe in the compassion of our community. We believe that this community will open their homes and hearts to provide loving families for needy animals. We also believe that generous and kind people will provide the financial resources needed to take care of the abandoned dogs and cats who depend on us.

We need and welcome your support. Thousands of adoptable dogs and cats are counting on us. Cats and dogs like the ones pictured on this web site. You can be part of the solution. You can help by making a tax-deductible donation to Pets In Need. Tax ID#: 94-6139667.


Pets In Need depends exclusively upon private donations to save animals' lives. You can help right now!

Work Place Campaigns

United Way does not list Animal Welfare as a donation category. Please let everyone know they can write in Pets In Need and their donation will be directed to Pets In Need. Please tell your coworkers to ask a supervisor for the donor designation form. You can direct your money to the charity of your choice.

Pets In Need is a member of Speakers Bureau for Work Place Campaigns. If your office team is looking for dynamic speakers and great four-legged stars to make your campaign meeting special, just ask for Pets In Need to address your group! Better yet, bring your work group for a tour so the animals can thank you themselves with loud purrs and wagging tails.

PIN Pals

Pets In Need appreciates your regular and sustained support to help the animals who are sheltered with us or helped through our unique combination of services. Providing your monthly support through our PIN Pal program is one way that you can help. In exchange, we'll send you our monthly Press Release and keep you updated about the pets and activities at Pets In Need.

  Here's a donation form you can print and mail.
