Donating to Animal Rescues

An animal rescue group or organization is dedicated to finding loving homes for animals through pet adoption. These groups work to rescue unwanted, abandoned, abused, or stray pets and attempt to find suitable and loving homes for them throughout their community or state. Many rescue groups are created by and run by volunteers who have a special love for animals. They often take the animals into their homes and care for them until a suitable, permanent home can be found. These rescuers will often train, handle medical issues, and solve behavior problems.

There are many rescue groups across the country, with different organizations focusing on a range of animals from birds to reptiles. However, the most common rescues are for dogs and cats. Even within these groups there are specialized rescue chapters that focus on finding great homes for specific groups or breeds -- for example, Guide Dogs of AmericaKitten Rescue (L.A.)Westside German Shepherd RescuePug Nation Rescue of Los Angeles, and California Wolf Center. There are also all-breed rescues which are not limited to specific types of cats or dogs. Instead, they rescue cats and dogs of any breed and often work with specific shelters. 

By donating, you can share your passion for a cause and draw attention to what you consider important. In return not only do you receive a tax deduction, but the feeling of know that you are helping others.

What is the Difference Between an Animal Rescue and a Shelter?

Though they may seem to serve the same function, there are a few major differences between shelters and rescue groups. Shelters are usually funded and ran by local governments, while rescue groups are funded mainly through donations and staffed by volunteers. Shelters typically house animals in crowded kennels, while rescues tend to place animals in foster homes. 

How Can I Support Animal Rescues?

Car Donations- An Alternative Way to Give

According to the U.S Department of Transportation, there are 242,060,545 private, commercial, and publicly owned motorized vehicles in the United States.

Some of these cars are drivable while others are not. Some of these cars are parked in a back lot or stuck sitting in your driveway. And some require way more work than their actually worth. In any of these cases, we can clear your driveway and turn a non-running car into a donation for animal rescues!

Are you looking to do something with that car you’re no longer using? Congratulations! You've come to the right place. Donating your car is a simple process that can significantly benefit the charity of your choice. On top of donating to your favorite cause, Cars2Charities also provides free towing to donors, and maximizes the value of your car donation- which benefits both our donors and our charities

In most cases, we accept donations of all types of vehicles, whether they are running or not. We process all makes and models of: cars, trucks, motorcycles, vans, RVs, boats, golf carts, and more!

The Car Donation Experts 

Cars2Charities is a family and female owned Los Angeles based commercial fundraiser and is registered with the appropriate business and governmental entities. 

Cars2Charities is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their vehicles to nonprofit organizations. Because most charities are not able to process their own vehicle donations, we take care of the scheduling, pick up, sale, and paperwork for each donation on their behalf. 

We help donors by making car donations safe, easy, and ideal by offering them the chance to maximize their tax deductions. 

We also help charities by facilitating a lucrative source of supplementary and additional income to support their worthy causes. We want to help as many individuals, families, animals, causes, and communities as we possibly can by using our 45 collective years of knowledge about car donations and the used car industry. 

In addition to effectively handling car donations within the USA, it is our mission to spread love, kindness, and generosity to others.

How to Donate a Car to Animal Rescues

With more than 30 years of experience, Cars2Charities has the expertise in making car donations to Animal Rescues easier than ever. Cars2Charities is designed to provide donors with a simple, fast, and secure way to donate their vehicles to animal rescues.Cats

Step 1: Preparing for the Process

You’ll start the process of donating your car to animals by collecting the vehicle's cleared Certificate of Title and Registration.

If you have misplaced your title or registration, don’t worry! We can help. Please find your vehicle's identification number (VIN) and together we can determine which supplementary paperwork you will need to complete at the time of pick up. 

Step 2: Scheduling Your Pickup 

Give us a call at (855) 520-2100, or complete an online donation request. Our friendly donation coordinators will gather your vehicles information, and together, we will decide the most convenient time, date, and location for the pickup. Then we will send you an email that gives you step by step instructions to prepare you for the pick-up.

Before arriving, our tow truck driver will call you one hour before to give you time to collect paperwork and prepare the vehicle for towing. At the time of the pick-up, make sure your title is signed and clear of any lien holdings. You will hand over the title and registration to the tow truck driver. 

Step 3: Maximizing the Donation

We take the reins at this point to maximize the donation for both our donors and charities. We do this by assessing the vehicle and adding value to increase the selling price of the car.

It’s a situation many people dream about – a successful way to support a cause you care about without the work involved.
