Unfortunately, we are seeing a rise in requests for veterinary care assistance. We hear of approximately 20 cases a week where low income pet owners need help accessing medical care for their dog or cat. Each case is as unique as the pet owner and pet.
It takes a village to raise funds for large surgery bill. We work with local veterinarians and other pet charities to assist the owner get the medical care their beloved pet needs. By leveraging our available funds, we can help more pets receive critically needed veterinary care.
Please join us by donating what you can. We rely 100% on donated funds.
