Giving Network

Helping Pets in Need

The Pet Leadership Council Giving Network is a collaboration between the Pet Leadership Council and‘s RescueBank to connect pet care companies with companion animals in need of supplies and other resources. It provides a fast and effective way to mobilize the pet industry to respond to crises and to ensure that pets in need receive the care they deserve.

Giving Network

How It Works

Companies Volunteer Supplies

Organizations register to become Giving Network partners. Giving Network partners will receive periodic updates from the Giving Network, including action alerts about pets in need.

Partners can submit donation offers via the Giving Network dashboard. Submitted donation offers are reviewed by a member of the Giving Network team to attempt to find a suitable recipient.

RescueBank Facilitates Logistics

Once a suitable donation/recipient match has been found, RescueBank will coordinate the pickup and transport of supplies from the location specified by the donor to a regional distribution center operated by a RescueBank affiliate.

Animals in Need Receive Supplies

After the donation has been delivered to a regional distribution center of RescueBank affiliate, pre-qualified not-for-profit organizations in the area are notified. These organizations pay a small, weight-based handling fee to pick up the supplies. This fee is waived for law enforcement and disaster-related activity.

Realtime Response

Disasters often strike quickly and without notice. For the animals and humans affected, every moment counts.

That’s why the Pet Leadership Council’s Giving Network was designed to react to crises immediately. As soon as disaster strikes, details about the event are sent out to all members of the Giving Network. Members in a position to provide supplies or other forms of assistance can report what they have. From there, RescueBank works with entities in the affected region to coordinate the delivery of resources to those who need it the most.

Giving Network Action Alert

Puerto Rico Spayathon

Puerto Rico is currently facing an animal welfare crisis. Following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, many individuals have fled the island and left their pets behind. The number of unowned dogs in Puerto Rico is estimated at over 300,000 while the number of unowned cats is estimated at over one million. Veterinary resources have been stretched to the limit. The situation is dire.

In an effort to combat the problem, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has launched the Spayathon for Puerto Rico, a campaign to help control the animal population on the island. Working in concert with 26 national and international organizations, the Spayathon aims to spay, neuter, and vaccinate 20,000 dogs and cats throughout the island.

To facilitate their goals, the HSUS has requested support in the form of 8,500 collars and leashes for dogs and cats treated through the program.
