Companion Bridge® is an online community for those with animals that require significant medical care to have a central place to inform family and friends and to solicit financial help. You have the ability to ask that we create a free page within the Companion Bridge site to provide medical updates in real time so that you do not have to repeat the same information to family and friends over and over. If approved your story will be posted live and can be kept online for up to 30 days. Companion Bridge is also an online resource with links to board certified veterinarians, rehab specialists, and vendors that make and distribute products that can assist you in caring for your special needs friend. You may also view our video library with helpful demonstrations for those facing home care of a disabled and or incontinent pet.
Companion Bridge also raises funds through its general donations page to assist those needing financial help with animals needing major medical care or with purchases of mobility assistance such as animal wheelchairs. Funds are disbursed only to the vet or vendor helping your animal. Companion Bridge is a not for profit, charitable organization formed under Section 501(c)3 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Donations to Companion Bridge are tax-deductible as charitable contributions for US federal income tax purposes. There are no donation limits or restrictions on contributions to Companion Bridge.
NOTE: We cannot help animals that are in shelters or with rescue groups.

If your animal is in an emergency situation, where a delay will put their life at risk, it is your responsibility to seek critical care for that animal immediately. There is never any guarantee that Companion Bridge will be able to provide financial assistance.
Companion Bridge is primarily focused on helping pets in the Mid-Atlantic states, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., New York, Virginia, and West Virginia. Other states will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
