There never seems to be enough money for animal rescues and shelters.
Every time we find a company trying to do something to give back we want to share it with our readers so they can take advantage of it in the hopes they find creative ways to earn more money for the rescues and shelters they love!
1800 PetMeds is a name brand that is known and loved as being one of the top online pharmacies dedicated to pets. They have been around a long time having served over 10 million customers, are publicly traded and is a licensed pharmacy with an exceptional Better Business Bureau rating.
To top it off they also have a great program called 1-800-PetMeds Cares, a program that is dedicated to helping animal rescues and shelters earn donations.
What Is 1800-PetMeds Cares?
The program is their way of giving back to the rescue community and they offer a few opportunities for rescues to be a part of their program.
- Rescues can apply to receive donations of over-the counter medications and other products. This is done once a year and requires organizations to submit their Request A Donation form.
- Grant contests are also done 4 times a year and can result in monetary donations for various rescue needs like spay/neuter, medical treatment and more.
- Referring customers to 1800-PetMeds to place orders for medication can result in donations back to rescues that sign up for the program.
So as you can see there are several great ways you can work with 1800-PetMeds to help your rescue.
The Change A Pet’s Life Contest
We love this idea! The Change A Pet’s Life contest is an annual contest that was inspired to help adoptable pets get much needed treatment they may need to be adopted.
Below is the story of Simpson, a pug that was with a rescue and required pelvic surgery in order for him to be adopted. He was the winner in 2017 and went on to be adopted and has a great life.

1800-PetMeds Shelter Referral Program
Every rescue can take part in this program and start getting donations pretty quickly by simply talking about PetMeds and getting your adopters to use them for their medications.
How It Works
Simply refer customers to 1800-PetMeds and for each new customer that orders from them you will receive a $20 donation.
Share your personal tracking link with your supporters via social media, in your newsletters and of course on your website to help make them aware of how much you will earn by them simply buying what they already use on 1800-PetMeds.
Once you join you will also receive paper handouts you can distribute to your adopters as well. This can include a 30% off discount for your adopters to use!
There is no limitations on how much you can earn with this program and since pet medications are a necessity, this is a great opportunity for your organization to earn extra donations so you can help more animals.
