Presents For Pets is beginning to establish itself as a nationally recognized donation program that preapproves participants and registered non-profit groups as recipients of the donated items. People and businesses have more confidence in spending their money and donating to the organization that is using the PFP donation boxes.
As PFP grows and more groups are registered, their organization is listed on our website as well as their PFP donation drive event.
Q: Who is eligible to receive PFP donation boxes?
A: We prefer to work with other non-profit organizations that desire to provide assistance in collecting donations to benefit homeless pets in their community. Groups such as animal rescues, animal shelters, civic groups or religious groups that are working directly with a local animal rescue group or shelter.
Other special events or organized community projects will also be considered on a per request/application basis.

Q: How often and how many PFP boxes can we request?
A: We will honor your request once per year (1 request every 24 months). We ship 3 to 6 boxes per request. If additional boxes are needed, a detailed Event Plan is requested in writing. Since our boxes are durable and fold for easy storage, we encourage groups to save their boxes for multiple donation drive events.
Q: Are there specific items we can or cannot collect while using our PFP boxes?
A: The “Wish list” or supply list of needed items should be prepared by your local animal rescue or shelter. They know best what is needed and wanted for the pets in their care.
Q: I want to make a donation but I haven’t seen one of the PFP donation boxes in my community. What can I do?
A: Contact your local animal rescue or shelter to make a direct donation. They usually welcome donations at any time of new and used items. Also check their website for a list of urgently needed items. They may not be aware of Presents For Pets so please share our information with them. Also consider volunteering and begin the process of a PFP donation drive with them.
Q: If I make a donation directly to Presents For Pets, how will the money be used?
A: Individual donation dollars are placed in a separate account. They are not used for operating expenses. These funds are dispersed to various non-profit animal rescue groups that have previously participated in our PFP donation program, according to the greatest need. -or-
