Emergency Care Package: Create Yours to Help a Distressed ‘Backyard Dog’ Survive the Summer!

The scorching sun and unrelenting heat this summer can be deadly for a dog chained outside without adequate shelter. Your generous gift today will help ensure that a neglected dog receives care, or you can provide some relief from the season’s worst weather by sponsoring a sturdy doghouse.

Donate a virtual care package of any size right now (even just one item!) and it will be matched, thanks to a generous offer from PETA donor David J. Reuben. This means you can send two care packages for the price of one! Please don’t wait—dogs need you.

Select as many virtual gifts as you would like:

Deliver a new water bucket.

This item costs $2.


Feed a neglected dog for a week.

This item costs $5.


Supply a dog with a tangle-free tie-out.

This item costs $10.


Sponsor a life-changing spay or neuter surgery.

This item costs $50.


Sponsor a sturdy PETA custom-built doghouse.

This item costs $265.

Donations to PETA are in U.S. dollars and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by U.S. law. PETA's tax ID number is 52-1218336. Please print or save this message for your personal records.

All gifts will be matched $1-for-$1 up to our $100,000 goal. Any funds received beyond the match goal will not be matched, but they’ll still make a tremendous difference to PETA’s mobile clinic work for animals. PETA is grateful to David J. Reuben for providing the funds for the matching-gift challenge.

Thanks to a generous foundation supporting PETA's work, an additional gift of $75 will be made to benefit our Investigations & Rescue Fund for each new monthly donor who gives via this form until December 31, 2023, or until the $75,000 campaign goal is met. Donations made after the goal has been met will not qualify for the extra $75 gift, but they'll still make a tremendous difference to animals.

All funds donated through virtual care packages go to the Community Animal Project to provide the resources most needed for dogs in distress.

What is the Verification Code and what does it look like?

For your protection, we ask that you enter an extra 3-4 digit number called the CVV2. The CVV2 is NOT your PIN number. It is an extra ID printed on your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express Card.

Visa, MasterCard & Discover

On the back of the card in the top-right corner of the signature box, as depicted in the image to the right. Enter the three-digit number following the credit card number.

The CVV2 is shown as 3 digits after the credit card number on the back of the card.

American Express

On the front of the card as depicted in the image to the right. Enter the four-digit number on the right directly above the credit card number.

The CVV2 is shown as 4 digits on the front of the card.

Bank Routing & Account Numbers

To make a payment directly from your U.S. bank account, you will need to provide the routing number for your bank, as well as your account number. Both of these numbers can be found at the bottom of a check issued for your bank account.

At the bottom of your check you will find three numbers - the routing number which is always 9 digits long for U.S. banks, the account number which can be up to 17 digits long, and the check number which will match the number found in the upper right corner of the check. These sets of numbers can appear in a variety of orders on your check. However, you will always find the routing number surrounded by this symbol ACH Routing Symbol, and the account number will always be to the left of this symbol ACH Account Symbol.

Please use the image below for an example of how your routing and account numbers may appear on your check.

Sample Check:

The routing number comes first and is surrounded by the ACH Routing Symbol symbol, the account number comes next and is followed by the ACH Account Symbol symbol.

The CVV2 is shown as 3 digits after the credit card number on the back of the card.
