Use Your Electronic Bill Pay Service

This is our preferred method for automatic monthly giving. Most banks offer free bill-paying as part of their online banking service. Log in to your bank’s online Bill Pay service, enter the name of our organization, Pajaro Valley Shelter Service, our address, 115 Brennan Street, Watsonville, CA 95076, if prompted, and set the payment schedule. Your bank will automatically send payment to arrive on the date you specify each month. The organization receives the whole amount of the donation without any per-transaction fees, and you do not have to pay postage. If you decide you want to change your donation amount or schedule, you can log in and make the change.


Use Your PayPal Account

If you have a PayPal account, you can set up a recurring payment to PVSS via your PayPal account.
