Passing the love on
At Bayer, our mission of Science For a Better Life is more than a tagline. It's a commitment to improving lives – both yours and your pet's. We’re proud of our long-standing partnerships with a variety of nonprofits and organizations that stand with our belief that life is better when loving a pet.

K9s For Warriors: Service Dogs for America’s Heroes
Bayer is proud to partner with K9s For Warriors, a nonprofit organization that pairs specially trained shelter dogs with veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and/or Military Sexual Trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Service dogs help where medications often fail so warriors can return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
Paws Place Pet Shelter at the Rose Brooks Center
For domestic violence survivors, finding a way to escape dangerous situations without leaving their beloved pets behind is a difficult struggle. Bayer is a longtime supporter of domestic violence shelters that understand the importance of keeping women and children together with their pets. Bayer is proud to support these special shelters that recognize the bond between families and their pets, such as the Rose Brooks Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and Noah’s Animal House in Las Vegas.In 2019, Bayer expanded its support of these organizations by launching the Grants Fur Families program. Through this program, Bayer has donated a total of $130,000 to 13 domestic violence shelters across the country, enabling these shelters to open new on-site pet facilities and to improve existing pet-related facilities.
Bayer is passionate about giving back, and ensuring that pets have what they need for healthy beginnings. Our Shelter Blueprint program provides affordable Bayer flea, tick and heartworm disease prevention products to animal shelters and welfare organizations.
