The only thing worse than losing a companion pet to euthanasia or surrender is knowing there may have been a way to avoid it. Max’s Helping Paws provides grants for those with pets in need of medical care. Max’s Helping Paws Foundation can match up to $1,500. There are times, however, when the maximum grant we can offer just isn’t enough to pay for necessary and often critical treatment, and the most loving and responsible person cannot afford the unexpected medical costs that will be needed in order to try to save their beloved pet’s life. And that’s where Helping Halos comes in.
Meet Annabel & Penelope…recent Halo recipients. We firmly believe that financial circumstance should never dictate a pet’s fate. That’s why we’ve launched the HELPING HALOS program- to allow you to see how donations are used, and to create a deeper connection between those whose lives you change.
In this program Donor “Angels” will have the opportunity to sign up to be contacted in the event of a special circumstance or traumatic event where they can be personally responsible for saving a specific dog or cat’s life. This program creates a deeper engagement between grantor and cause by enabling donors to have a greater say in how their donation is used. Our “Angels” will be able to specify the types of grantees they would like to support. This would be a directed donation towards treatment, and the donor would receive updates on that specific pet if they choose.
