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.

How can a care package make a life-changing difference for “backyard dogs”?

Every day, PETA helps lonely dogs who are languishing in backyards, longing for a friend. Sometimes, these dogs don’t even have basic food or shelter.

PETA’s Doghouse Program allows donors to create a customized care package to help these neglected “backyard dogs” find some relief from their misery. Care packages can include food, medicine, and a custom PETA doghouse.

Midnight Before

Dogs have been found living in all types of horrible, makeshift shelters, made from overturned trash cans, pieces of a rotting wooden fence, or even piles of garbage. These dangerous excuses for shelter cannot protect dogs from the frigid winter temperatures or snowstorms, leaving them vulnerable to freezing and even death.

Midnight After

Unlike many store-bought doghouses, PETA’s custom-built ones protect dogs from the harsh winter elements. The broad, sloped roof shields the dogs from rain, and the straw helps insulate them from the wind and cold.

Robo’s Story

Robo was confined to a backyard cluttered with trash, using an empty dresser to shield himself from the elements.

But thanks to the care packages of generous supporters, we were able to provide him with a doghouse. Now, he has adequate shelter during the harsh summer months, and PETA fieldworkers still visit regularly to give him/her cuddles, toys, and ongoing care.

And Robo isn’t the only one we’ve helped! Rascal was tangled up in his chain and only had a crumbling stack of junk for shelter when PETA fieldworkers found him. We gave him a new doghouse and replaced his heavy chain with a lightweight tie-out, and now he’s thrilled to have some room to move about.

So many other lonely dogs need our help. Will you donate a life-changing care package today? (Remember: You can now fund two care packages for the price of one, thanks to the generous matching-gift offer from PETA donor David J. Reuben!)

Our Community Animal Project’s Work in Action (Thanks to Kind Supporters Like You!)

Your support powers our vital work for dogs. Help us do even more to reach dogs and other animals. Donate a care package today.

Thanks to a generous group of donors 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, 2024, 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.

A monthly gift of $  will help dogs survive this winter's icy grasp.
