Companion Animal Welfare Fund Instructions
An Easy Way To Help Animals During Tax Time!

Passage of the Companion Animal Welfare Fund created a new, interest-bearing fund in the State Treasury that supports animal welfare organizations and rescue groups throughout Michigan.  Michigan taxpayers can donate to the fund through Schedule 4642, a Michigan voluntary contribution tax form.

All donations will be distributed through grants to organizations throughout Michigan, providing financial support for spay/neuter and animal cruelty investigation programs.

All it takes is three simple steps:

  1. Obtain Schedule 4642, a voluntary contribution form, from your tax preparer, or download below. 
  2. On the form, select Option 3 “Animal Welfare Fund” and designate an amount of your discretion to be donated. You can choose to designate a portion of your tax refund to the fund, or make a separate voluntary contribution.
  3. Attach Schedule 4642 to your individual tax return form.
