Having trouble affording veterinary care?
Help is out there!
It could happen to anyone with a pet: You've always managed to give your pet the medical care they deserve, but because of unexpected circumstances, you're faced with vet expenses that are far beyond your ability to afford them.
No owner wants a pet to suffer because medical care is out of reach. Financial aid is out there, and there are steps you can take to cover an emergency vet bill.
Please remember that, depending on the severity of your pet's illness or injury, you may still lose your pet even after great expense. Discuss the prognosis and treatment options with your veterinarian, including whether surgery or treatment would just cause your companion discomfort without preserving a life of good quality.
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:
Magic Bullet Fund: cancer-specific
The Mosby Fund
The Onyx & Breezy Foundation
Paws 4 A Cure
The Pet Fund
Pets of the Homeless: pet food and veterinary care assistance for homeless
The Riedel & Cody Fund: support for pets suffering with cancer

Top Dog Foundation "Bentley Grant": for senior dogs (age 10 and over; breed taken into consideration when determining what is "senior")
Animal Care & Assistance Fund (veterinary care assistance)
