Privacy Policy

Welcome and Thanks for Reading Our Privacy Policy Statement
Thank you for visiting the Frankie’s Friends Charitable Pet Foundation web site and reading our privacy policy. This information is important and pertains to all of our donors and web site visitors.

Who We Are
Frankie’s Friends is a non-profit charitable foundation dedicated to finding cures and saving pets with cancer and other catastrophic diseases by supporting better access to veterinary care, better treatment for the diseases of pets, and better support for the humans who love them. Frankie’s Friends is recognized by the Internal Revenue Services as a Section 501(c)(3) non-profit, publicly supported organization. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We Keep Track of Certain Information – But We Don’t Share That Information
In order to fulfill our mission, Frankie’s Friends maintains databases that are gathered completely from information knowingly and voluntarily provided to us by our donors and web site visitors. Frankie’s Friends respects your privacy. We do not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any of your personal information unless required by law.

Publicly Thanking Donors
Frankie’s Friends receives contributions on-line, in person, and through the mail. Frankie’s Friends may list the name, city and state of the donor and the occasion of the donor’s gift in our print or on-line newsletters by overall category of giving. However, specific donor amounts and specific addresses are not disclosed. This is a well-established policy adopted by most charitable organizations. Donors who do not wish to be included on public lists in this manner may request this from Frankie’s Friends in writing.

Credit Card Information
Frankie’s Friends does not disclose, give, sell, or transfer any of your personal information unless required by law.
