This year, Trupanion featured ten organizations and asked the public to vote for the next nonprofits. After an outpouring of public support for each organization and over 22,000 votes over the past two months, we tallied the final count and are proud to announce the finalists of the TruGiving Member Donation Program.

Donations to Animal Welfare Organizations
Trupanion’s pet-passionate community gives back through member contributions, the Shelter Support Program, and regular Trupanion employee charity events, including our annual pet food drive where we’ve donated over a ton of food to the Seattle Humane Society every year for the past four years.
In 2014, Trupanion members and the Shelter Support Program helped us donate over $209,000 to nonprofit animal welfare organizations across North America.

Trupanion’s Volunteer Program

In the first 5 months of the program, Trupanion employees volunteered over 270 hours toward organization like Seattle Humane Society, PAWS, Pasado’s Safe Haven, Seattle Aquarium, food banks, senior centers, and the Washington Trails Association.
A Word From the Nonprofits You Help
“In 2014, Trupanion’s contributions to the American Humane Association helped rescue 236 helpless dogs and cats from neglect and abuse situations. The AHA was able to provide them with medical attention, rehabilitation, and lots of TLC, giving the dogs and cats a second chance at life.”
- Paul Raybould, Chief Innovation Officer, American Humane Association
“The Farley Foundation relies on donations to be able to subsidize the non-elective veterinary care of pets who belong to a variety of pet owners in need of financial assistance. The donations received from Trupanion and many other generous donors enabled the Farley Foundation to assist a record 1,000 low income pet owners who would otherwise be unable to afford veterinary care to obtain needed treatment for their beloved pets in 2014.”
- Doug Raven, Executive Director, The Farley Foundation
“Each year, the BC SPCA cares for more than 25,000 abused, injured and abandoned animals across the province. It is our commitment to provide every animal in our care with the medical treatment it needs, when it needs it and it is these cases of medical emergency that are the focus of Trupanion’s donations to the BC SPCA. The BC SPCA is reliant on public support, and we are deeply grateful to supporters like Trupanion. We thank Trupanion and all our supporters for their inspiring commitment to the BC SPCA and abused and injured animals!” - Meredith Beitl, Senior Development Officer, Corporate Relations, BCSPCA
