Pet Fund For Low-Income Families

The goal of the Pet Fund is to provide financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need veterinary care.

Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or needed medical treatment. While agencies like Medicare provide low-income families with medical care for human children and adults, there are no agencies which provide help with the expense of animal medical care. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or surrender them to a local shelter because of the costs involved.

The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost.

I think this is wonderful! I am in a situation were I need help for my dog . She was a stray that I took in and I myself have medical issues and she has brought so much joy to my life. I now have something to get up and live for. She is in really bad pain and needs knee surgery that I can't afford being on disability. This site has brought us hope that maybe I can receive some kind of help for her. Thank you so much for being such a caring person to all of Gods creatures. Alee Wise, CA
