How Fundraising for Pet Partners Works
When you fundraise for Pet Partners, you not only support more therapy animal visits for those in need, you also spread the word about the impact of the human-animal bond. There are many benefits to hosting a fundraiser on the Pet Partners website, including:
- The ability to personalize your page with stories and photos.
- A tax receipt for your donors that comes directly from Pet Partners.
- The ability for you to thank your donors easily through the online platform. Pet Partners will also send a thank you note to your donors.
- Donor comments, where they can share stories, memories, and other notes about the person or pet you are honoring.
- The ability to revisit your fundraising page even after you are done fundraising.
In addition to all these benefits, you will always have Pet Partners' gratitude for your support. We could not make therapy animal visits possible without your help. Thank you!
