Other Assistance Programs
The following is a list of organizations that provide financial assistance to pet owners in need.
Please keep in mind that each organization is independent and has their own set of rules and guidelines. Therefore you will have to investigate each one separately to determine if you qualify for assistance.
- IMOM – imom.org Mission statement: Helping people help pets. To better the lives of sick, injured and abused companion animals. “We are dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged.”
- The Pet Fund – thepetfund.com The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs 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.
