Donate To Save-A-Vet

Danny & NeroFirst Things First

On behalf of everyone at Save-A-Vet and the soldiers we are working to care for, we would like to thank you for your support!

There are many ways to donate in addition to cash. Below you can find information about money donations, vehicle donations, personal property donations, and our new co-branded Visa Platinum credit card program.

We also are always looking for volunteers. Being a volunteer does not always mean hands-on work, but also can be someone with special skills or more experience in areas that we need help. In addition to volunteers, we also receive much needed support from our generous sponsors and allies.

And, we always welcome people at our many events, and are happy to ship you as many Save-A-Vet logo items from our online store as you and your friends and family can carry or wear!

Save-A-Vet is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that rescues military and law enforcement working animals who are non-adoptable, by sheltering them with disabled military and law enforcement veterans who live with and care for these other forgotten soldiers.

All donations are fully tax-deductible.

Money Donations

Of course, we welcome your donations too. You can conveniently donate online or by fax or mail.

We are a "verified merchant" with Authorize.Net a leading credit card processor for online donations. You can donate online with a simple click of this button:

Donating by credit card or check via fax or mail is easy too. For credit card donations, just print this form and fill it out with your donation, then sign the completed form and fax it to 815-349-9648, or mail the form or a check to: Save-A-Vet nfp Inc., 387 Northgate Rd, Lindenhurst, IL 60046

Also, you may want to support our "Buy A Brick" Building Fund Campaign to help us build our first rescue shelter and veterans housing facility on land that was donated to us in Zion, Illinois.

However you decide to give is good, because it comes from you. We thank and honor you for it.

Save-A-Vet has close relationships with a large amount of other non-profit organizations. If you have anything you wish to donate that you believe can be used, we will find a use for it within our organization or one of our friends.

In addition, we help deployed MWD units, law enforcement K-9 units, fire, search and rescue, and other government agencies that are unable to provide the many needed supplies to care for their canine comrades. We send out care packages overseas and stateside as often as possible.
