Become A Member
We connect, collect and share – expressly for your benefit, and the benefit of the animals you work so hard to care for. With our strong connections and extensive giving network, we have the power to bring together much-needed supplies, donations and volunteers, and then offer them to you when you need them most.
For just $100 a year, you become an official part of this community. Members take, give back, share with each other. It’s a positive and collaborative spirit – giving everyone who serves needy animals the assistance they desire and the critical resources they require. It’s also a tangible source of relief, letting you focus on your animals rather than worrying about provisions.
The only thing separating your independent or lesser-known organization from the “big dogs” is dependable, at-the-ready access to funds, food, support and supplies. UPF is changing that, for nearly 100 members and counting.
Please note: Your animal rescue, shelter or advocacy group MUST be a 501c-3 in order to apply.
Benefits of Becoming a United Pet Fund Member
A perfect home base not only for your fundraisers or meetings, it’s also a go-to source of warehoused food and supplies when the need arises.
Educational Events + Seminars
Members receive free and discounted admission to our yearly conferences, covering animal behavior, management, fundraising and more.
Our distribution days and share events are designed to provide you further access to food and supplies either for free or at drastically reduced prices.
Partnership with OneSource
UPF pays your first-year fees for this group that distributes corporate donations (furniture, care items, consumables, etc.) to its nonprofit members.
Working as intermediary with most of the largest pet food manufacturers in the US, donations are then sent to UPF Resource Center for us to distribute to our members.
Social Media Support
From helping promote your organization, its needs or upcoming adoption events, we work with you to get the word out in as many channels as possible.
