Everyone, meetBrown Dog Foundation

Pet Treater has supported Brown Dog Foundation since 2016, and look forward to a new round of work and helping them provide care for more pets in need!

For 2019, we hope to raise $5000 towards life-saving assistance to pet families facing an incredibly hard choice between saving their family pet and the cost of medical care.  

And we need your help!

Launched in June 2019 - we hosted an auction on Facebook where we list 30-50 items throughout the month of June, and collect highest bids!

Why Brown Dog?

We are so honored to support an organization that puts others and pets first.  It is a challenge to know where to lend a helping “paw” today with so many different organizations and companies out there to draw our attention. 

Brown Dog Foundation was founded in 2006 and has continued to help families that may not have the full financial resources to care for or save their pet.  Yet, because of thoughtful and loyal donors there is hope.  Pet Treater & Brown Dog Foundation share the common goal of having more time, but most importantly, quality time with our pets.

Our partnership alignment is clear, as Brown Dog focuses on “bridging the gap between the cost of medical care and saving the family pet,” Pet Treater strives to treat all pets. We can't do one without the other. We must focus on healthy pet families in order to achieve both goals.

Our Commitment

In past years, Pet Treater has helped Brown Dog financially & personally, then we decided we could do more. 

We created an audience grown from scratch on Facebook with a lively month long auction in Facebook Groups.

Today, our commitment to our partnership with Brown Dog has been thoughtfully developed, with several events throughout the year, from auctions, to month long shopping events, to small retail sales at local events, to check out donations, and outreach programs like the BigPayBack.org.

To this date, Brown Dog Foundation has helped over 1000 families save their pet. That's 1000 more pets we get to treat, and love on for that much longer. We can save more, with your help.
