Donating to Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary

Donating to Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary

If you haven't made a 2018 donation or are looking to make an end-of-year one for tax purposes, look no further than Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary. We realize that people want to know that their donations are truly going to those who need it. Here are some FAQs about donating to us.

Why should I donate to you? How do I know you are legitimate?

If you're reading this, you probably have a passion and a love for animals like we do. There are many worthy animal shelters in the Phoenix area alone, and Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary is one of the only ones that specifically takes care of of senior animals, who are often overlooked at other shelters and are more likely to be euthanized. We are a 501c3 – a nonprofit comprised of an all volunteer staff.

How much should I donate?

Of course, this is a personal choice. As you know your finances better than anyone, you should donate as much as you want as long as you can afford it. Even as little as $5 can help an animal in need. Here's how your donations have helped specific dogs over the years:

I don’t have a lot of money. Are there other items I can donate?

Absolutely! Like people, animals have many needs besides money. As we are an all-volunteer organization, our animals appreciate food donations, treats, and pet beds, just to name a few items. Here is a link to our wish list.

I have an old couch. Can I donate that, and can you pick it up?

The answers are yes and yes. The animals we take in may be going through a rough time, and we try to make their accommodations as comfortable as possible in a shelter situation. Plus, couches are also comfortable for our volunteers to hang out in while spending quality time with the dogs. The more comfortable we can make our volunteers, the longer they hang out. It’s a win-win! To arrange a furniture pick up, please fill out our online form.

Is my donation tax-deductible, or can I earn tax credits?

Yes. For specific information, please consult your accountant or certified tax preparer.For further questions about how to donate or how your donations are used, please contact us, and one of our volunteers will get back to you. Thank you for considering Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary. Happy holidays!
