Matching Corporate Donations

When making a donation, don't forget to check with your employer to see if they have a MATCHING GIFT PROGRAM. Many corporations will match or even triple your gift to us. Some will also match gifts made by their retirees - so be sure to check with the Human Resources Department. Any paperwork needed from our end can be requested by emailing: info@adoptapet-il.org.

Honors and Memorials

What better way to honor your pet than by giving the gift of life to another needy animal? When a donation is made to Adopt-A-Pet in honor or memory of a pet or person, we will send a beautiful acknowledgement to that person letting them know of your gift (no amounts are disclosed). This is a wonderful way to celebrate any special occasion, or "just because". Just include a note with the details, and we'll take care of the rest!
