BuzzRx reaches $750,000 milestone with the ASPCA
Each time someone saves using the card with the ASPCA logo, BuzzRx grants money to the organization
BuzzRx, the only provider of free prescription discount cards benefiting nonprofits year-round, announced its program with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has donated $750,000 to the nonprofit organization since the program’s initiation in November 2016.
According to a company release,1 these lifesaving funds help support vulnerable animals in the country and could offer nearly 1,500,000 meals for shelter cats and dogs as they await adoption.
BuzzRx has witnessed substantial growth in the usage of their card benefiting the ASPCA, including a 7% increase in donations in 2021, leading to $150,000 donated.1 The card is useful for prescription pet medications if the prescription is filled at a human pharmacy. The donations have no impact on the prescription discounts and are made at no cost to the cardholder. Each time someone saves using the card with the ASPCA logo, BuzzRx grants money to their organization.
"We're thankful for BuzzRx's support of the ASPCA's lifesaving work, and this milestone of $750,000 in donations helps us continue to make a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable animals across the nation," expressed Christina Wyman, vice president of cause partnerships at the ASPCA, in the release. "BuzzRx's vital contributions elevate our efforts to help protect pets and keep them in safe and loving homes.
"We are thrilled to be celebrating this milestone of three-quarters of a million dollars donated to the ASPCA. Many Americans continue to turn to pet adoption to enrich their lives. We are happy to support the ASPCA in preparing shelter pets for adoption and helping prevent cruelty to animals throughout the country,” said BuzzRx co-founder & CEO Matt Herfield.1
The Prescription Discount Card can be used by those that are insured or uninsured. It is accepted at more than 60,000 drug stores across the country.
