In 2011 roughly 4 million families were faced with not being able to provide critical medical care for their animals and were forced to end their pet’s life. A tight budget does not allow room for the medical bills a sick animal may carry. When this is the case, many people take to message boards and fundraisers or even a second mortgage in an attempt to raise money to help their beloved friend. But far too often the naysayers just don’t understand how you could spend that much on an animal. Many don’t understand the bond and won’t offer the support needed, financially and emotionally, to care for a sick or disabled animal. That leaves pet owners with an empty wallet and no hope. This is where Companion Bridge can provide help. We provide a place for members to share their stories with people who understand. With people who have been there, either in their own life or with someone they knew, and are willing to offer both financial and emotional support to those who are fighting for their counterparts with no voice. We’re providing the bridge that owner and animal need to cross to find the help they need.

All donations done on this page go to the general fund. If you would like to donate to a specific animal please donate from their page under “Our Stories”.
