Like most rescue groups, we operate on a shoestring budget. The cost to shelter, vaccinate, spay/neuter, and feed our dogs exceeds the adoption fee. We do not receive any government-related grant money. We thankfully accept private and corporate donations. Without this support, we could not continue to fulfill our mission to help homeless dogs. When you make a contribution with cash or a check we will provide you a receipt for tax purposes. If you would like to make a tax-deductible charitable donation you can do so online through the giant donate button on the right. The receipt you receive from Paypal will serve as your tax receipt. To make a credit card donation by phone call us at 216-664-9660, or mail a check to:

BarkBox is dedicated to supporting the health and happiness of all dogs! That’s why we donate at least 10% of our profits to shelters, rescues and animal welfare organizations. We do this through many different campaigns and types of donations. We are interested in working with any rescue, shelter, non-profit or organization that helps change the lives of dogs in need. Our goal? A world where all dogs are happy, healthy and in a safe, loving home.

Each time the Secondhand Mutts code  is used, a donation is generated for us! Be sure to enter Code Sec2BBX1 when you shop. Click here to shop at BarkBox.
