Can you help me and my pet?
Waggle helps pet owners in financial need by providing tools, advice and sharing templates. To raise funds, however, you must fully participate by sharing the campaign we help you create. Only by making your story known to your friends, family, local community and social media will you be successful.
If you are willing and able to do this, we can indeed be a great resource to you as we have for many others.
Does my veterinarian need to participate on Waggle?
They do not need to join Waggle. We do encourage them to join - and suggest you do so also - to avoid a fee being assessed by our payment processor. As a Waggle partner, we can e-pay (fast, free and easy) them rather than sending a mailed check, thereby passing 100% of funds raised efficiently and quickly.
What if I don't have any money to take my pet to the veterinarian?
You will first need an estimate or invoice from your veterinarian to complete your campaign setup. Our team cannot begin unless the document has been provided. If you are unable to visit a veterinarian, we suggest contacting your local humane society or animal shelter since they may offer reduced cost care or vouchers to use at your local practice.
What do I do if my pet needs treatment immediately or before the end of the campaign?
Please communicate with your veterinarian about payment arrangements or reimbursements if this situation arises. You can initiate payment to your veterinarian of funds you’ve raised at any time by logging into your account and closing your campaign.
How do I get funds that are raised?
To initiate Waggle’s payment to your veterinarian, simply log in to your account, select your campaign, and click the close button. You will be asked to provide a quick update so that we can inform your generous donors. Waggle will then send a request to your veterinarian for a copy of the invoice. Note: We advise that you communicate directly with their office during your Waggle campaign to help streamline the payment process.
What do I do if I’ve already paid my veterinarian?
Please communicate with your veterinarian about payment reimbursements. It is very common for veterinarian practices to reimburse pet guardians after receiving payments from Waggle.
What if my vet will now allow 3rd party payers?
We are often able to work with veterinarian practices when this situation occurs. Please have them Contact Us so that our team might help facilitate.
Am I a good candidate for Waggle?
Our growing Waggle community believes that pets should not be put down simply because a family is without financial resources. We can help you reach the greater pet-loving population, but it begins with your commitment to sharing your own story. Only by spreading your pet’s campaign with your family, friends, local community and beyond can you hope to succeed in raising the funds you need.
Can I post my pet on Waggle? What do I need to do?
Yes! The process is simple and begins with our Sign Up page. You will need to (1) upload an invoice or cost estimate obtained from your veterinarian and, (2) provide the contact info for your veterinarian.
Can I join Waggle as a pet guardian even if my veterinarian is not a Waggle Partner?
Yes! During your registration, you will have the opportunity to search for your local practice/hospital on waggle.org to see if they are already working with us. If they are, great! If not, we make it easy for you to tell them about Waggle – and to receive the funds you raise!
Our team has worked hard to provide you, your veterinarian and your community tools and insights to help raise funds and get your pet treated. We strive to be unique from other crowdfunding platforms because we are truly dedicated to solving your problem and helping connect you to those who care for the wellness of pets.
