A Charitable Foundation for Pets in Need

Since we started, Save U.S. Pets Foundation has worked hard to prevent economic euthanasia from being the only choice for a pet in a time of crisis. We do it by reaching out to the community at large and raising funds so we can give grants to help give these pets a chance at a full life.

Keeping families together is what it's all about.

Together, we can all make a huge difference!
