Workers and volunteers at shelters work tirelessly to care for and rehome millions of pets each year. They are the primary caregivers for the most desperate animals in our communities. Unfortunately, they struggle to raise the necessary funds to support their work.
Oftentimes these shelters are allocating their time and resources to lost pets who actually have loving homes, but are temporarily displaced. Space is limited and resources are tight. We wanted to help.
So in addition to transformed pet licensing programs that help provide crucial funding to these shelters, we’re offering better ID tags - linked to comprehensive profiles and equipped with our free HomeSafe™ lost pet service. All with the end goal of supporting shelters from a financial and logistical perspective.
But why stop there? 20% of each and every purchase will always be donated to local animal charities through our Safe&Happy Fund, which provides additional funding for the animals in need and the dedicated staff that serves them.
Additionally, we offer pet owners a simple, built-in option to make a donation while they are checking out, or simply visiting their account.
If you represent a shelter or humane society and are interested in learning more about DocuPet tags in your community, get in touch with us. We’re always looking for new ways to get more pets wearing our special tags so we can continue to work towards our mission of helping all pets have a safe and happy home.
We’ve raised funds for dozens of animal welfare organizations across North America
providing the resources shelters need to save lives.
Our Safe&Happy Fund makes it easy (and sometimes, automatic) to provide financial support to local shelters. Read on to learn about some of the animals assisted through these efforts:
Hope was found with severe head trauma from what was thought to be a hit and run. She was immediately
taken to a local veterinary clinic to assess her injuries. She was closely monitored for the next week
while receiving syringe feeding.
“Hope” isn’t just a clever name; in just a week, she was eating on her own and playing just as any regular kitten would be. Unfortunately, she has lasting nerve damage in her front leg, which is now unresponsive. This has caused her leg to drag while she walks, which in turn creates uncomfortable sores. The leg will require amputation, but veterinary staff are confident she will pounce back in no time.
Remi originally arrived as an approximately 10 week old stray kitten. On intake it was apparent he was blind from severe trauma to both eyes. While the cause of eye trauma is unknown, these injuries were causing him pain.
The little kitten was taken to the local veterinary clinic immediately, where he was given pain medication and a treatment plan was prepared. Remi required surgery to both eyes, a procedure called an enucleation would remove both eyes to relieve Remi’s pain. He recovered very well from surgery. Now, Remi acts like a typical kitten; he has a very playful and has a loving personality.
Honey was found by a young man named Adam late one night on a dark country road. Adam gathered her up into his truck to get her the care she so desperately needed. Honey had surgery to remove the larger masses to help with her pain. Sadly, tests confirmed she had cancer and to remove them all would be too much on her.
Honey’s surgeon advised that there was nothing else to be done. Honey was feeling better so a home was found for her final months. Adam learned Honey was up for adoption and decided he wanted to provide the love Honey needed. After a few months, Honey had “comfort surgery” to remove a couple of painful tumors. Honey was totally cancer-free! Today, Honey is happy, healthy, and so well-loved.
A small, scruffy terrier mix was found dragging his legs behind him. After multiple x-rays and diagnostics, it was determined that this little guy had suffered a traumatic event resulting in near paralysis of his lower back.
His front legs worked extremely well, however, so after fitting him for a wheelchair and watching him run around like a happy puppy, he was affectionately named Scooter. Scooter took immediately to his newfound mobility and began wheeling around the shelter with reckless abandon. His fun-loving personality brought smiles to everyone around him.He is now happily wheeling around his new home with his adoring family.
