As a small 501(c)(3) Public Charity, Piney Mountain Foster Care depends on private individuals and small businesses who are willing to join us in our mission more than any other source.  By donating to our General Operations you buy nutritious food, healthy snacks, and provide comfortable and safe accommodation to our foster dogs.  Your gifts to The Julian Fund provide needed veterinary care.  By supporting the Improvements Fund you expand and improve our facilities so we can do more for the abused and neglected dogs of our region.  If a particular dog has touched your heart, you can sponsor the care of that particular dog.

Your gift can be made as a one-time donation or you can, in most cases, choose to make a monthly Sponsor donation, automatically billed to your credit card or PayPal account.  Even a small amount coming regularly is a tremendous help!

Everyone involved with PMFC is a volunteer, no donated funds go to salaries or benefits.
Everything you give goes to caring for the dogs.
We are 501(c)(3) – EIN: 84-3593563

Ways to Give

If you’d like to be part of Piney Mountain Foster Care, there are several ways to give.

  • PayPal Donate buttons on our web site allow you to pay with a PayPal account or a credit/debit card.  Most of these allow you to select a program and choose to make it monthly gift or a one-time.  A special button on the Julian Fund page places those donations into a dedicated account for veterinary expenses.
  • Amazon Smile is a way to support us at no cost to yourself.  Just  tell to support us as you shop and they will set aside a portion of THEIR profits from your purchase to be given to us.
  • Send A Check to Piney Mountain Foster Care, 1198 Piney Mountain Rd., Newport TN, 37821.  Please note if you want it used for a specific purpose.
  • Cash or Goods.  If you are local, or will be in the area, we are happy to meet you and accept a cash donation or goods such as blankets, collars, leashes, dog beds, toys, and other items we use and need because they get used up.
  • Wish Lists. We maintain wish lists at the businesses below that allow you to select and purchase an item we need and have it sent to us.  These products have been selected as things we are always in need of.
    Kuranda Dog Beds
  • Buy Our Stuff.  We offer a variety of products for sale, from our world famous Peanut Butter Dog Treats, to Artistic Note Cards, to Tees and Sweatshirts to Coffee, Tea & Cocoa.  New things pop up all the time.  See them all on the Our Store page.  Subscribe to our newsletter to be notified of new merchandise.
  • Giving Your Time.  For a more personal approach to helping, you can help us by giving time.  Time spent helping to clean and fix-up, time to bathe dogs and trim nails, even time spent playing with a dog helps to socialize them to a wider variety of people.  See our Service Projects page for details.
