After 20 years and over $60 million raised to make a meaningful impact in lives around the world, GreaterGood.com is relaunching with a new look, and a renewed commitment to lending support where it matters most.

For the last 7 years, your clicks at the GreaterGood website have helped support hundreds of small projects that aid people, pets, and the planet. In just the last few weeks, you have helped fund specialized care programs for those living with Alzheimer’s, you have improved the likelihood of adoption for often-anxious shelter pets, and you’ve helped us donate 1,000 books to children in need.

This support has changed lives, and on the all-new GreaterGood.com, it will now be amplified across 24 of our most impactful programs and partnerships. One of them is helping animals survive a natural disaster crisis.


When natural disasters strike they do so without regard for species. News stories often cover the people displaced or injured by disaster, but seldom show the whole picture – disasters affect animals too!

Animals need rescuing when faced with storms, floods, fires, or earthquakes, just like people. They may need physical rescue from flood waters or debris. They may need immediate medical attention for burns, dehydration, or lack of food. They may lose their homes, their families and need to relocate. Humane organizations and first responders in disaster zones are their chances of survival.


Working collaboratively to bring needed funding to these animal heroes is the best way to meet immediate needs of those pets that are in danger, and your donations to GreaterGood.org are a critical part of reaching that goal.

Every donation helps GreaterGood.org prepare first response teams as quickly as possible when disaster strikes. Your gift will fund emergency rescue teams, animal shelters, food, supplies, medical care and emergency transportation for animals in distress.


Survivors shouldn’t have to wait while funds are being raised. Become a first-responder by donating to save their lives today. You can learn more about this life-changing program and many others at the new GreaterGood.com click-to-give site.
