Start a GoFundMe. Encourage your community to donate, especially if they can’t adopt at this time.



Charities need support from people

like you in order to keep their doors open.



Raising money will help an animal find their forever home, and we can share your cause too. 

How It Works


Create your GoFundMe

Explain why saving animals and supporting rescues is close to your heart. Pictures of furry friends encouraged!

Share with friends and family

Share with your community on Facebook, email, or text. Let them know how important this cause is.

Easily accept donations

Donations are 100% tax-deductible when you connect to the animal shelter’s 501(c)(3) non-profit

Is GoFundMe safe?


Our giving community of more than 30 million depends on the safety and security we’ve built into our platform and every day, thousands of campaign organizers get the help they need from generous donors. 


The GoFundMe Guarantee is the latest layer of protection to the safest place to give. For more information on all the ways we keep GoFundMe safe, visit this page.

Does it cost anything?


While it’s free to create and share your online fundraising campaign, GoFundMe will deduct a 5% fee from each donation that you receive. A small processing fee of about 3% will also be deducted.
