PetMeds Cares Donations Request

PetMeds Cares™ organizes product donations to animal shelters and rescues located within the contiguous U.S. and Washington D.C. area.

Groups are able to apply for consideration once per 12 month period.

We kindly ask that before filling out the form you read and understand the following:

Please note, we are no longer able to donate gift certificates or food. Product donations are limited to non-prescription medications and pet supplies items.

Due to the number of requests we receive, it may take a few weeks to receive a response. Due to the incoming number of requests, we are not able to donate to all applicants. Currently, the PetMeds Cares Donation Program has been temporarily paused and we apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your understanding.

What is a “Tom” Cat?

Unaltered male cats are commonly referred to as “Tom” cats. Intact male cats have a characteristic appearance, with a heavier, more muscular body, thick neck and the typical big, heavy tomcat head.  This thickening of the face is commonly referred to as “stud jowls” or “shields.”  If a male cat is neutered before reaching puberty at around 6 months of age, he will not develop these secondary male sexual characteristics.

Neutering a male cat will also greatly reduce unwanted behaviors such as roaming, fighting and urine marking. Additionally, shortly after neutering, the characteristic pungent smell of the male cat’s urine will be eliminated.

Hurricane Florence Relief

Hurricane Florence made landfall as a major storm on September 14th, 2018. The storm caused major damage to buildings, homes, and wildlife especially to the coastal area of the Carolinas.

As was the case with last year’s hurricanes in Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas, pets and animals are still in great need of assistance days after the storm hit. That’s where Brother Wolf Animal Rescue of North Carolina has shined. Their animal rescue initiatives in response to this disaster has been incredible.

PetMeds has pledged a donation of $5,000 in merchandise credit along with flea and tick prevention and other supplements to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue to assist in their tremendous efforts.

“This generous donation from PetMeds will go a long way to help animals affected by Hurricane Florence and we couldn’t be more grateful for it,” said Denise Bitz, President of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. “Dogs like Hutch, here, were rescued from the storm and need a lot of TLC to be readied for adoption.”

If you would like to contribute to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in their mission to help the pets affected by Hurricane Florence, please donate via their website. If you would like to learn how PetMeds® Cares, you can visit our how we help page.
