If a company could look better in the public eye by helping a great cause and most likely generating more revenue...why are they not doing it?

I am the Founder of SAVE ANIMALS IN SHELTERS, INC. a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charity assisting domestic homeless shelter animals while reducing the euthanasia rate.  Currently, about 10 million domestic homeless animals are euthanized every year in the USA, which happens in every state. Domestic animals who are placed in shelters are usually devastated because they are not use to this environment.   Most people would prefer to buy from a company that assists a charity and truly cares about the less fortunate.  Also, that company looks one step up from their competition.  Companies who partner with charities will advertise it to the public and that is where there is so much more revenue to generate.  It could the smallest amount of a donation and yet companies can still use it as a marketing tool and it is a write-off for the company.


We are a small charity with no overhead and all our staff are volunteers along with our Board of Directors.  All monies raised, 100% are used to transport the animals out of highest-kill shelters and bring them to rescue groups or foster homes.  The money is also used to feed the animals and provide medical care.  With larger charities, it is a fact, that not all the money raised go to the actual cause because of their expenses. Such as: salaries, building rent, and medical insurance for their employees. And some of the bigger charities offer pensions to their employees.  Also, we have legal staff that will assist our charity with any transaction needed pro bono. 

If you are interested in a partnership with our charity or simply making a monetary donation, (no amount is too small) please hit the donation button on this website.  We also accept gently used or new animal supplies. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at:  973-271-2500.
