Animals Need Your Help

We are matching your total donations up to $20,000! Please donate!

Our Mission

The Perlmutter Fund for Animal Welfare provides awareness, resources, and funds to promote the welfare of animals through the coordinated support of the people and organizations whose mission it is to save them from dangerous situations, care for them and find them loving homes.

Our Impact

Your support of our fund provides money for a number of key initiatives across a number of non-profits. We have provided food, veterinary care, and transport to animals in need. Our long-term initiatives include the creation of a sustainable communications network where animal welfare organizations can easily get information to support one another and provide larger resources like administrative support and physical space.

Our success is dependent on you—your money, time, and creation of awareness among all of our initiatives.

About Our Founder

Hi! I'm Frank!

Many of you know me from my years in the business continuity industry while many more of you know me from all of the time I have spent with cats, volunteering and crusading for their well-being. The connection between animals and people is one of the strongest bonds that exist. They are our family. They are warm and caring and love us no matter what.

Over the last 20 years I attribute a great part of who I am to the time that I’ve spent with cats and the wonderful people with whom I volunteered. Some 15 years ago I quit my job and sat in a shelter every morning, just me and the cats. It was wonderful connecting with them and being able to truly think about who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do next. I came up with a business idea around building a software product that could help organizations and people during disasters. I dreamed of how I could help animals when the business was a success—a mobile adoption vehicle that I could travel in and donations to help all of the animals at my rescue.

Now some 15 years later it has all come full circle. I have sold my successful business and started up The Perlmutter Fund for Animal Welfare. It is truly a dream for me and I couldn’t feel more excited to be doing this. I hope you’ll join me along the way in donating to my Fund and providing time and awareness to the great organizations the Fund will support.

The Perlmutter Fund - Making a Difference

Donations needed

We learned that one of our local cat rescue organizations had a very urgent need for a food donation to meet the needs of caring for outdoor cat colonies.

The Shipment

This is where the rubber meets the road...we were able to donate a sizable shipment of dry cat food and deliver it to the rescue location.

Ready For Winter

It might have seemed like a lot of food, but we knew it would be consumed very quickly. Outdoor cats need a lot of food to survive harsh outdoor winter conditions. With provisions like these, the cats had a much greater chance of making it through the long winter.

(Our thanks to Brenda's Cat Rescue for the great work they do.)
