About PetMeds Cares

PetMeds at Barktoberfest

1-800-PetMeds® supports pet rescue and adoption through 1-800-PetMeds Cares™. This program’s primary focus is organizing donations of over-the-counter medications and products to animal shelters and rescues located in the continental U.S. Rescue groups can apply to be considered for donations once each year. If interested, please visit the Request a Donation page to submit your group’s information.

1-800-PetMeds Cares™ also hosts four grant contests each year for rescue groups, including the Shelter Appreciation Week Contest and Change a Pet’s Life Contest. These opportunities are spread out throughout the year and offer monetary grants to aid different aspects of pet rescue, from spay/neuter to funding lifesaving medical treatment of adoptable pets.
