FAQ

  1. MBF is a nonprofit 501C3, and donations are tax deductible. We send a receipt for your accountant every time you donate. At the end of the year, if you would like a record of all your donations for the year, just ask.
  2. The cases we help are pre-qualified for you. We check the owner’s finances to be sure that they really cannot afford the treatment fees. And we check to ensure that the pet has a good chance of one-year survival if they get treatment.
  3. A campaign in MBF is different from a GoFundMe, Waggle or other such campaigns. Most people who apply to us have already run one of these, and were not able to raise the donations. We do raise the funds needed.
  4. We use your donations for the cat or dog’s treatments. If not possible, then for another cat or dog’s treatments. We release funds only to the clinic, never to the owner. Funds are never sent to a clinic before treatment, for the clinic to hold and use at will.

After you send us the application and all required documents, it will take 3-7 days for us to send you a decision. That is, if your clinic fills in our Medical Review form right away.

We get so many applications that sometimes a decision is made according to which applications have the greatest need for assistance. We must ensure that we are sending our sponsors’ donations to families that really do need their help.

We love old cats and dogs – most of us have one! But the fund helps the pets who have the most to gain from our assistance – the most possible years of survival.

We do not give grants. We run a campaign for each pet, to bring in donations needed for that pet’s treatments.  Owners are required to help us raise donations for their pet.
