A friend emailed me about three organizations she knew of that provide financial assistance to those who qualify, and are unable to afford care for their sick pet.
This post is not an endorsement of these organizations, but if an emergency arises, and an owner is faced with putting their beloved pet down as they cannot afford treatment, these organizations might be able to help. No doubt, there are other organizations who offer pet owners assistance as necessary, but I only know of these three.
* The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable foundation created for the specific purpose of helping veterinary practices fund the discounted and no charge care they generously provide.
* The Mosby Foundation The Mosby Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, to assist in the care of critically sick, injured, abused and neglected dogs through financial support and public education.
* Frankie’s Friends: Frankie’s Friends provide hope for families who are simply unable to pay for a serious illness or injury requiring specialty care.
