Each year, hundreds of employees choose to direct a portion of their paycheck to the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center through workplace giving. Via monthly payroll deductions, it’s easy to make a tremendous impact on the lives of homeless pets residing at the Center!

Here are some ways that you can support Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center through your workplace:

  • Your Company’s Campaign: During a workplace giving campaign, companies provide an opportunity for employees to donate to causes important to them. Find out what opportunities you have to contribute to by contacting your Campaign Coordinator.
  • United Way: To designate your gift through United Way, please reference Pet Adoption Center’s agency code 17533.
  • State and Local Government Employees: State and municipal governments may offer employees an opportunity to make charitable donations through payroll deduction. Ask how you can support Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center during your agency’s campaign.
  • Matching gifts.

Matching Gifts: Your Gift Could Go Twice as Far!

Did you know that many employers sponsor matching gift programs that match charitable contributions made by their employees? Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and spouses. By enrolling in your company’s matching gift program, your gift could be doubled and go that much further in helping support orphaned pets.

Here are two ways to initiate your matching gift:

  • Submit a matching gift verification request through your company’s online portal.
  • Obtain a matching gift verification form from your human resources department. Please email or mail your completed form and a copy of your donation receipt to .
