You Nominate, We Donate!
Your nomination is more than a richly deserved purr of thanks for a job well done — it’s also an opportunity to paw it forward for pets in need! Beginning April 6, for each nomination you submit, Petplan will donate $1 to one of three charities that benefit furry friends. On the nomination form, you’ll choose one of the following groups:

  • Adopt-a-Pet.com is North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website and is dedicated to the mission of helping homeless pets be saved from euthanasia by connecting good people with these great animals. Millions of potential pet adopters use the Adopt-a-Pet.com search engine to find their perfect companions at local animal shelters. To date, Adopt-a-Pet.com has helped to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of loving and deserving family pets. Find your new best friend at www.Adopt-a-Pet.com! 

  • GreaterGood.org is an independent charitable organization devoted to improving the health and well-being of people, animals, and the planet. They work domestically and internationally with animal rescue organizations to ensure the proper treatment, care, and protection of companion animals and wildlife. GreaterGood.org also directly administers monetary grants and grants of food, equipment, and supplies to over 6,000 US animal shelters, as well as operates signature programs such as One Picture Saves a Life,  Rescue Bank and Rescue Rebuild with the goal of helping more homeless pets find forever loving homes.
  • Morris Animal Foundation is a nonprofit organization that invests in science to advance animal health. The Foundation is a global leader in funding scientific studies for companion animals, horses and wildlife. Since its founding in 1948, Morris Animal Foundation has invested more than $92 million toward 2,300 studies that have led to significant breakthroughs in diagnostics, treatments, preventions and cures for animals.
