Pet Help Finder was launched by Open Door Veterinary Collective, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The locator was made possible by a grant from Life of Riley, a program of Spring Point Partners that advances animal welfare by investing in diverse leadership and community-driven solutions. Spring Point Partners is a social impact organization based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Pet Help Finder is a national database to promote financially friendly pet services and resources and connect them to support pet families and social service agencies. It launched in February 2023. It has started out with English and Spanish conversion with other languages coming on as “fast follows.”
Pet Help Finder uses the following definition for Financially Friendly and is committed to include all service providers who offer meaningful support to their communities and the human-animal bond related to veterinary care, pet food and supplies and pet care services such as grooming, crisis boarding and behavior assistance.

After 15 months of design and testing, Pet Help Finder launched February 1, 2023 with pet care listings all across the country.
Pet Help Finder’s home address is PetHelpFinder.org and is built upon an application platform hosted through Chorus.
Pet Help Finder was launched by a non-profit committed to opening doors to pet care nationwide while enabling veterinary and pet care providers to sustainably provide those services. Open Door’s team have over a century of experience in veterinary care, community animal welfare and innovation to address the needs of pet families and organizations. Open Door and its team members have been involved in ground breaking pet family and social service agency research which directly prompted the creation of this site to meet an unmet need of bringing together all service providers and pet families.
