SPAY & NEUTER INFO
We at the PCHS feel that we have an obligation to ensure that animals within our county receive proper and humane care. Therefore, we should strive to significantly reduce the number of animals euthanized and born unwanted.

As part of an effort to meet this goal, the PCHS encourages spaying and neutering through education on overpopulation. We also coordinate the following spay/neuter services in our community:

We work with local veterinarian offices who offer discount services for low income families residing in Pulaski County.
We coordinate and book appointments each month on the for our in-house Spay Clinic, where local vets perform surgeries at the shelter.

During the Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors meeting on Wednesday, November 18, 2009, Richmond Animal League (RAL) presented the committee with a proposal to partner with Chesterfield County Animal Shelter to provide transportation and low cost spay/neuter surgeries for their cats and dogs prior to adoption. RAL’s presentation was in response to a request by county officials to provide such services. The surgeries would take place at RAL’s Loving Spay + Neuter Clinic adjacent to their shelter by Chesterfield Town Center. This partnership would be the first step in creating a no-kill community in Chesterfield.

In September, RAL announced the upcoming opening of their Loving Spay + Neuter Clinic – a low cost/high volume spay neuter clinic located in a facility housed on their property. Funds were raised to launch and sustain the clinic through private donations and a substantial grant from PetSmart Charities, Inc. The clinic is expected to be operational within the next four to six weeks. The clinic’s services will be offered to any pet owner, humane group or municipal shelter without geographic restrictions.

Please call Richmond Animal League for further information regarding when the clinic will be open.

The VBSPCA Veterinary Clinic serves households earning $42,000 or less per year, and you will be asked to provide proof of income before services are delivered. Exceptions are made to this policy on a case-by-case basis if you can prove that you simply cannot afford treatment elsewhere. Because of the overpopulation of pets, our clinic only serves animals who have been spayed or neutered or who have an appointment to be altered.

The clinic offers low-cost spaying and neutering, wellness visits and vaccines, and illness visits and treatment. If you qualify financially, you may contact the clinic directly to make an appointment at
clinic@vbspca.com or by calling our clinic message line at 739-9306.

HOPE Program Offers Help To Those In Need
 
The Virginia Beach SPCA is implementing a temporary program called Help Out Pets Everywhere (HOPE).  It will provide help with:

Dog and cat food,
Clinic services,
Other services as determined.

The HOPE program will help people with pets who are having a hard time making ends meet.  The economic downturn has affected everyone, some more than others.  People who meet eligibility requirements (i.e. unemployment statement, food stamp eligibility, or foreclosure notice) can receive pet food and limited veterinary services. “We want to help people keep their companion animals during economic crises” said Sharon Adams, Executive Director, for the Virginia Beach SPCA.  “We trust that by helping people through a tough time we can offer hope to families who feel as if they are losing everything, including their furry best friends.”  

The Virginia Beach SPCA is partnering with Farm Fresh and our donors to provide bags of dog and cat food to families struggling to feed their families and their pets.  The Virginia Beach SPCA Clinic will waive office visit fees for eligible families if their animal becomes ill or injured and needs care.  Other services will be developed as we learn what families need to get through this crisis with their family pets.  Amy McNally will be the central point of contact for the HOPE program at the Virginia Beach SPCA and can be reached at 427-0070 Ext. 13.  People wishing to be considered as a HOPE recipient, should call for an appointment.

The Seattle Humane Society provides services to keep people and pets together in King County. Low-income senior citizens can receive a supplemental supply of pet food. People disabled by AIDS can receive pet food, supplies, grooming and veterinary care.

Pet Project

Pet Project, an offshoot of the Pet Food Bank, provides services to individuals disabled by AIDS. In addition to providing economic relief, the program supports the unique power and healing that comes from the connection between people and pets, especially since clients may be housebound and have limited social contact or energy for daily tasks.

Pet Project matches volunteers one-on-one with clients, handling most of their pet care needs on a monthly basis, and enables clients to keep their pets while spending their limited resources on food and other living expenses for themselves. All services and supplies are donated or purchased with donated funds. Pet Project services include:

Free pet food and cat litter delivery

Free pet items such as beds, scratching posts

Free basic veterinary care

Free basic grooming services

Free pet care information

Individuals disabled by AIDS should contact Pet Project at (425) 649-7566 to be considered for Pet Project services. Other organizations that support people disabled by AIDS should also contact petproject@seattlehumane.org if you are interested in collaborative efforts or partnerships. Pet Project is funded in part with a grant from the Pride Foundation.

Plenty of good low cost/no cost spay and neuter help provided on this page.  The problem is it says they are not accepting any public spay/neuter cases now, "We anticipate resuming appointment scheduling later this summer.  Please check our web-site for updates."  Suggest contacting them to see if public spay and neuter services have resumed.  Cats, dogs and rabbits are welcome.

Special Program: Free Spay Surgeries Cats, Dogs and Rabbits!

We are now offering free spay surgeries for any female cat, dog and rabbit who is brought to our shelter with a litter. The animal will be returned to the owner, and the kittens, puppies or bunnies will be placed for adoption.

"We are always looking for ways to reduce the number of unplanned litters", said Dr. Bethany Faulkner, senior veterinarian. "If people have pets that have had a litter, we want to encourage them to bring the mom to us for this free sterilization when they bring in the kittens or puppies or bunnies for adoption so that the problem doesn't repeat."

Make an appointment with this special program, please call us at (425) 641-0080. Appointments are available 7 days a week. There is no charge for surgery and vaccinations are $10.00 - 15.00.

Requirements

An appointment is required for each surgery and can be made by calling (425) 649-7560. All animals must be at least four (4) months of age. We are now open 7 days a week from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Local veterinarians and SPCA volunteers donate their time primarily for preventive care (examinations and nail clippings, etc.). Animals requiring more extensive care are referred to the BC SPCA's Vancouver Animal Hospital.

Note: according to Mission Possible, the organization hosting Charlie's Food Bank and the Free Veterinary Clinic, the clinic is also offered every Thursday, beginning at 10 AM.

Low-income subsidies: Through a special fund, the SPCA Hospital in Vancouver has limited resources available to help low-income pet owners care for their animals. When people donate to the Galem account (named in memory of a dog whose $600 vet bill was paid by a complete stranger), the money is used to help these less fortunate families meet the medical needs of their animals.

Spay Washington is a statewide referral network for low cost spay/neuter services. Participating veterinarians or clinics lower their prices an average of 15-50% for our clients. Many people in Washington are unable to afford to spay or neuter their pets, even though they want to do the right thing for their pets and their communities. Please, help us reduce the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals by assisting pet owners throughout the state by donating to Spay Washington today.

October 6, 2009

Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control is looking for donations of dog and cat food to stock the Pahokee Pet Food Bank in order to assist low income or indigent pet owners in need of food for their pets.  The food bank is located at the West County Spay/Neuter Clinic in Pahokee, Florida. This facility operates to actively reduce pet overpopulation by offering free sterilization for cats and dogs to all residents.

The West County facility is located in one of Palm Beach County’s most impoverished regions. Many animals are left to fend for themselves because families can no longer afford to care for them.  Any contribution is greatly appreciated.  The food bank will accept any brand of dog or cat food, any size bag, and any canned or unopened bags of dry food only if the product has not expired or been damaged.

Donations may be brought to Animal Care and Control’s main shelter in West Palm Beach, 7100 Belvedere Road, or the West County facility, 3615 State Road 715, Pahokee.


For more information, please call (561) 233-1222.  For information about the Pahokee free Spay/Neuter Clinic, call (561) 924-5657.

Providing Emergency Vet Care for all pets in Key West and the Lower Keys

http://www.xenafund.com/info.htm

How to receive help from the Xena Fund

To receive help from the Xena Fund, the procedures are simple.

The Xena Fund supports pets and their owners in two ways.  

First, the Xena Fund reimburses Veterinarians for their emergency care for your pet.  Therefore, if you are in any type of financial need, have your vet call the Xena Fund at (305) 294-1019.  We rely on the vet's recommendation to help in the care of the pet.

The Xena Fund makes one-time grants payable directly to the vet for your pet's care.

Secondly, the Xena Fund will help those pet owners who are on a fixed income.  If you are on a fixed income, the Xena Fund will pay for annual visits to the vet and any preventative medications and annual vaccinations.

If you fall into this category, let your veterinarian know of your situation.  The vet will know of our policy to reimburse them for their annual visit care.

You will be required to sign a form requesting help for your pet.

Please remember when calling the Xena Fund:

Speak Clearly for the answering machine

Leave your name, phone number, your pet's name and the best time to be reached

Leave your vet's name and phone number.

Doney Memorial Clinic
Union Gospel Mission (basement)
318 Second Avenue  Extension S
Seattle, Washington 98104
Phone: 206-622-5177


The Doney Memorial Pet Clinic offers free vet care and pet supplies to homeless and low-income people in Seattle.

Open the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month. (Call for hours.)


"For two hours on the second and fourth Saturday of every month, up to 45 homeless and low income pet owners file into the basement of the Union Gospel Mission at 318 Second Ave. in Pioneer Square. There, a volunteer team of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and others host the Doney Memorial Pet Clinic.

"The makeshift clinic operates at a kinetic pace. Upstairs, clients take a number and wait with their pets to be called into the basement. There's also an area to pick up donated pet food, blankets, and other items.

"Certain pets require follow-up visits, which may involve a trip to one of the local veterinary hospitals that has partnered with the Doney clinic to treat some of the clinic's patients that have more serious conditions.

"For several years, a local laboratory has provided the clinic's diagnostic services at no charge, according to Dr. Coe.


"Don Rolf has been with the Doney clinic 23 years, scheduling volunteers, ordering supplies, and collecting donations. It's mostly been cats and dogs brought to the clinic, but he's also seen rabbits, chickens, ferrets, and even a pot-bellied pig.

To make a donation: Send a check, made out to Doney Memorial Pet Clinic, to 4351 29th Ave. W., Seattle, WA 98199.

PET ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

In addition to transporting owned dogs and cats to get spayed and neutered to help stem the tide of over-reproduction, NJAFA has also been providing ancillary supplies and services for dogs and cats through PEP for the last five years.

PEP enriches the lives of dogs and cats after they get spayed or neutered. For example, pain medication - the low cost clinics do offer pain medication but the residents of Camden have to pay extra for it. Without the funds to pay for even a spay or neuter most residents do not have extra funds for pain meds. PEP pays for the pain meds.

PEP provides for much needed shots that will prevent PARVO, a very contagious sometimes fatal disease that dogs contract and can cost up to hundreds of dollars to treat.

Money donated to PEP also pays for flea treatment, a dog house, a bag of food or any extra component that will enhance the life of an animal after they are spayed or neutered and before they are returned to the owners.
For more information email info@njafa.org

SHOT CLINIC FOR CAMDEN ANIMALS

NJAFA is hosting shot clinics for dogs and cats in Camden City. These clinics provide much needed vaccinations for dogs that without the shot could acquire Parvo, a contagious and sometimes fatal disease. We also provide cat distemper shots, food for dogs and cats, flea treatment and collars and leashes.

SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAM FOR DOGS AND CATS IN CAMDEN CITY, NJ

President, Kathy McGuire, transports owned dogs and cats from the homes of Camden City residents to a clinic to get spayed or neutered for people who cannot afford it or do not have transportation. We pick up the animals in the morning, transport them to clinic and return them later same day.For more information email info@njafa.org

FOR FERALS ONLY
For eighteen months, NJAFA has been partnering with Atlantic Co. SPCA spaying and neutering feral cats to be released back into managed colonies.Recently, we hit our 500th mark and are going strong.

Serving homeless pet owners and those who live at or below the poverty level in Davidson County.

Already this year we have had 46 animals totally vetted (this always includes spaying or neutering), we have treated and saved the lives of 11 (one for a knife wound), we have had 32 surrendered to us and placed into rescue and continued on with our commitment to a better world for these animals. That number now includes Miller the rooster!  In addition we have made sure that the pet owners we serve have access to pet food, cat litter and other necessities if they are unable to purchase these pet needs on their own. We have a very active pet food bank that now serves between 40-60 pets each month!  In addition we treat each animal we serve with either Advantage Multi, Frontline or Panacur. And although these are not high numbers as some organizations count, they are significant because they are animals who no one would even know existed if it were not for SAAW.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare offers programs ranging from low-cost spay/neuter certificates - available to everyone regardless of income - to programs that will either subsidize or completely pay for pet sterilization and vaccinations, based on income.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare has programs ranging from low-cost spay/neuter certificates, available to everyone regardless of income, to programs that will either subsidize or completely pay for pet sterilization and vaccinations. The free and subsidized services are income based.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare reaches out to pet owners who feel intimidated by full service veterinary clinics because they just do not have the financial resources to pay their prices. Many of these pet owners have the desire and ability to become responsible pet owners; they just need a helping hand in getting to that level.

Veterinary bills can be a challenge in the best of times. Animal Aid offers assistance to community members who cannot afford needed veterinary care.

Who gets this assistance? People going through bad times, seniors living alone, single parents. For some, the single source of emotional warmth in their life is their companion animal. These are people who care deeply for their friends. And when that friend is suffering, these people suffer right along with them -- all the more so because they don't have the resources to pay for needed care and are faced with the specter of having to put their best friend to sleep as the only way to ease their pain.

Before You Request Assistance Please Understand:
Our funds are limited and the number of requests is huge. Our budget generally dictates $100 per request.
Repayment is expected, but we have a lot of practice in working out realistic and individualized repayment schedules – every penny we are reimbursed goes to help other people. You will be, in point of fact, "paying it forward".

All clients receiving assistance are directed to use our Portland area pre-approved clinics only. Not only do we have confidence in their work, they are actively helping us keep costs down.

We provide assistance for unexpected medical emergencies, and cannot help with routine pet care such as vaccinations, worming or check ups.

We cannot offer assistance outside the Portland Metro Area or after a pet has already been treated.

There may be other requirements, based on the situation.

If you feel your situation qualifies under these rules, please dial:

503-292-6628 Option 1

Leave a message with your contact information (please spell your first and last names) and briefly describe your pet’s medical issue. We will return your call ASAP within our normal business hours.

The donor–supported Velvet Financial Assistance Fund reaches out to qualified low–income clients to help ease their burden, cushion their pain.

DoveLewis is proud to offer financial assistance to qualifying low–income clients to help cover the cost of medical treatment in an emergency. As you might imagine, the demand on this donor–funded program is enormous.

The Velvet Financial Assistance Fund has fewer donors yet gives out more money more often to local families than any other DoveLewis program. No one else in the region helps people with their pets’ medical bills more than DoveLewis.

How Does the Velvet Assistance Fund Work?
Not everyone who applies for help from the Velvet Fund will receive it.
Only DoveLewis staff determines who will receive help from the Velvet Fund.
Help is given on a case-by-case basis.
Before they may apply for help from the Velvet Fund, DoveLewis clients must first fill out a Care Credit application. If clients receive Care Credit, they must first use up that money before using any money from the Velvet Fund.
Cases being considered for Velvet Fund money must meet three criteria:
1. Must be an emergency
2. Patient must have a fair to good prognosis
3. Owner must have financial need

The Velvet Fund covers a maximum of $750 per case. Anything above that must be paid by the owner at the time of service. DoveLewis does not bill or set up payment plans.

Velvet Fund money recipients will never be asked to pay the money back.

The league urges all pet owners to have their pets spayed/neutered, and via public donations, fund raisers, and the cooperation of many Monroe County veterinarians, we assist pet owners who cannot afford to have their pets altered through our low-cost spay/neuter program. If done at an early age, there may be a cost savings and health benefits to your pet.

When animal emergencies occur, we will assist in an emergency to ensure the animal is seen by a veterinarian.

Routine veterinary care is expensive enough, but what happens when your pet suffers a debilitating illness or accident? Jackie Barnett's Just Like New Fund exists to help cover one-time emergency costs so your pet doesn't have to be euthanized simply because you can't afford the bill. Rescued animals that are sick or injured also qualify for assistance through the fund.

Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Certificates

*First Come first Serve:  as long as funds are available.


So how can we help you help ferals?

A Helping Paw offers FREE spay/neuter certifciates for people willing to continue care of these wonderful animals. All we ask is that you pay a $10 fee towards vaccinations. (We have been able to reduce the fee thanks to grant funding made by Petco).
By vaccinating the cats, you are substantially reducing the spread of rabies and distemper, which can be spread to our domesticated friends. Did you know that less than 5% of the feral cats in the population have Felv/Fiv? Please also ask about our discounted vaccinations if you have more than five ferals to care for. We also offer trap rentals, which is the safest way to transport cats to the vet.

http://www.tailshumanesociety.org/main_sublinks.asp?id=25&sid=242

The Meals on Wheels Program provides much needed food deliveries to DeKalb County's homebound residents. TAILS has partnered with them for the HomeBuddies Program. Every week, TAILS staff and volunteers prepare individual care packages for each HomeBuddies participant. Included in packets are a week's suppy of pet food, cat litter, and other supplies tailored to the needs of each individual pet. The pet care packages are delivered by Meals on Wheels volunteers to program participants with their normal meal delivery.
 
TAILS Goes Three Steps Further
 
Throughout the country, Humane Societies have developed similiar programs to care for pets. But TAILS service goes three steps further with the HomeBuddies Program.
 
1.   Pets receive free veterinary care at the TAILS Veterinary Clinic.
2.   Each client is partnered with an experienced HomeBuddies volunteer who makes periodic contact with the client through phone calls or visits to care for issues that may arise. They'll even transport the pet and/or client to and from vet visits!
3.   For qualified Meals on Wheels clients who do not currently own a pet but would like to, TAILS waives the adoption fee and their HomeBuddies Volunteer takes their new buddy to them.

If you know of someone you think would benefit from the HomeBuddies Program, if you would like to Volunteer, or if you would like more information, please call TAILS' Outreach Coordinator at (815) 758-2457, x107.


How YOU can help
The HomeBuddies Program depends heavily on donations of pet food and supplies. Look for the big blue donation bins at participating retailers throughout DeKalb and Sycamore. Donations can also be dropped off at TAILS at 2250 Barber Greene Road in DeKalb.


http://www.tailshumanesociety.org/main_sublinks.asp?id=25&sid=241

New expanded low-cost spay/neuter program!
 
During tough economic times, it can be difficult to afford to spay or neuter your pet.  Because of the tragedy of pet overpopulation, we at TAILS, think spay/neuter is very important.  That's why we've expanded our low-cost spay/neuter program:  to help more pet owners get their pets spayed or neutered.   
Fees are income-based. 
All surgeries are performed at the TAILS Humane Society Vet Clinic, 2250 Barber Greene Road, DeKalb, IL   60115.
Low-cost vaccinations and microchips are available during surgery appointments for additional fees


Two ways to apply:

1.  Apply online - you will be asked to bring income verification (tax return, recent pay stubs,etc.) with you to your appointment.

Lansing State Journal November 13, 2009

"Each week seems to be worse than the last," said McAloon Lampman, shelter director. ICAC wants to stem that tide by reaching out to at-risk pet owners with assistance programs that will help those same families keep their pets.

Thanks to a collaborative effort with the city of Mason, Ingham County government, Mason Rotary Club and Kent Feeds, the ICAC has food in its pet food bank to help pet owners get through these rough times.

When shelter staff members ask pet owners what they can do to help them keep their pet, the answer is often simple: "We need food." Often they ask for just enough to get through the end of the month, or help with a minor veterinary concern, a doghouse and some straw, or help with spaying the cat.

ICAC found that providing pet owners with enough food to get them through a few weeks has helped take a huge burden off an already stressed family situation. For some families, it has been as simple as providing a doghouse or a bag of dog food.

ICAC is seeking additional doghouses and straw to give away to needy families.

The pet owner assistance programs are not funded with tax dollars. All funding comes solely from donations and grants.

Donations of money, dog and cat food for the animal food bank and dog houses are needed. To donate, call (517) 676-8373 or drop it off at the shelter, located at 600 Curtis St., or go to the Web site.

The Society would like to be play a part in helping to reduce the number of dogs and cats that are abused, abandoned and euthanized and to be involved in working with other organizations achieve the same in any way we can.  

The Society would like to provide pet owners with some form of financial support to off-set the costs of owning and providing a caring home for their pet(s), particularly dogs and cats.
 

http://pettale.com/Home/OurGoals/tabid/74/Default.aspx

We strongly believe that we can reduce the number of abandoned pets if we can provide both financial and care support to existing and potential pet owners.  More specifically, we want to focus on helping pet owners provide a caring and loving environment for cats and dogs.  We aim to take a proactive approach with the people we want to help.  Our approach will require our pet owner members to give us a chance to place the pets they no longer have the ability to care for with other families that want a pet but cannot afford one.  

Our initial focus will be a web portal, www.pettale.com, which provides the opportunity for the Society to launch its financial initiative.  The financial initiative will consist of two components: "a food bank for pets" and "a cash voucher program".  Our primary focus is to set up a food bank for pets. The food bank is designed to help those families who would like to keep their pets but finding it challenging in providing the basic needs for their pets. The food bank acts as a bridge for those families that are experiencing a temporary financial set back until they are able to get back on their feet. Along with the pet food bank, we would create a cash voucher program to help member pet owners to reduce the monthly expenditures for their pets so they can afford to keep their pets rather than having to give them up for adoption or to the SPCA.

http://pettale.com/Programs/FoodBankforPets/tabid/87/Default.aspx

All proceeds benefit DAG's animal programs, including the spay/neuter assistance program. DAG is an all-volunteer charitable organization that has subsidized almost 8,000 spays/neuters of dogs and cats since 1991. DAG volunteers have organized and sponsored mobile spay/neuter vans in Luna County since 2003. The van will be returning to the area from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter in February and March of 2010 at a cost to the group of $2,200 to $2,500 per day.

The event is free, but donations of dog and cat food are needed for the Pet Food Bank to help needy local pets. Pet food is also being collected at Deming Animal Clinic and High Desert Veterinary Care. Donations of dog houses in good condition are needed to provide shelter for cold, unsheltered local dogs this winter.

The public is invited to join in Deming Animal Guardians' Christmas Party to celebrate the importance of the four-footed friends in our lives. For more information, call Pat at (575) 544-2209.

Deming Animal Guardians began a program on Wednesday that aims to help homebound senior citizens keep their pets. The Bob Beckett Senior Center's meal delivery program will act as the feet on the ground to deliver cat and dog food to seniors and their pets in need.

"We realized how important pets are to senior citizens and that many are having a hard time feeding their animals as well as taking care of their own needs," Pat Danser, DAG President, said.

The animal guardians have distributed over 11,000 pounds of dog and cat food to needy families since 2008. The latest effort kicked off with 648 pounds of dog food and 90 pounds of cat food for pets of local seniors.

"All of our volunteers get immense personal satisfaction from knowing that people who love their animals will be able to keep them during these economic times," Danser said. "We always have difficult economic times in Deming, it's always a struggle. There are so many needy people." She said the program will not be able to continue without monetary donations or donations of pet food. Grants help fill the gap, but can't cover the needs of all local pets. The PETCO Foundation has supplied the DAG with a $2,500 grant and the Humane Society of the United States has supplied $1,000. The Humane Society grant goes toward pet food distribution at the Helping Hand commodity center.

"We never know if these will be renewed," Danser said of grants.

Pet food is planned to be dropped off at the senior center on a monthly basis.

"Some people will feed their animals before they feed themselves because those dogs and cats are so important to them," she said. "They're family members." The main war cry for the DAG is spaying and neutering animals. Some assistance is offered to low income families seeking help with medical costs.

"When they get the dog food, they are encouraged to spay and neuter," Kathleen Hollis, one of seven volunteers with this program, said.

For more information or to donate, contact Danser at (575) 544-2209. Tax-deductible donations can be mailed as a check to P.O. Box 1275, Deming, N.M. 88030.

Forever Home Feline Ranch is an organization created to provide a “forever home” to every cat in need.

At the present time, while raising funds for property, the group is assisting local residents in keeping their companion pets by providing programs such as the Pet Food Bank and Vet Care Assistance (includes dogs). Helping people keep their companion pets is the best way to keep animals out of shelters and will help achieve their ultimate goal of establishing central Illinois as a no-kill community.

Wish list:

Pet taxis - all sizes
Dry cat and dog food
Wet cat and dog food
Cat toys
Litter
Gift cards: PetSmart, K-Mart, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menards, Walmart, Petco, Big R and Target

Marin Independent Journal November 27, 2009

"I quickly learned that the SHARE program provides assistance to low-income seniors in Marin County to aid in keeping them with their best friends - their companion animals. Assistance is offered by way of pet food, veterinary care and home visits.

http://www.marinhumanesociety.org/programsservices/share.html

SHARE consists of several programs that provide a variety of services with the common goal of keeping good friends – people and companion animals – together. The love, support and companionship pets have to offer are invaluable, not to mention the medical findings that prove they are good for us, especially to someone who is ill or isolated. SHARE's services help people who have a great respect and love for animals maintain a special bond with pets. SHARE does this by:

Providing pet care assistance to low-income seniors, persons living with HIV/AIDS and those receiving hospice services
(Side-by-Side)


http://www.marinhumanesociety.org/programsservices/vetclinic/index.html

The clinic provides vet care to Marin residents participating in the SHARE Program (Special Human-Animal Relationships). This program allows pet guardians to care for their pets after circumstances make it difficult for them to do it alone. By working with volunteers, participants can arrange for transportation and assistance to respond to their pet's veterinary needs.

The veterinarians and other clinic staff assist other animal rescue organizations and feral cat colony caretakers by providing discounted spay/neuter surgeries and health care.


http://www.marinhumanesociety.org/helpanimals/catfund.html

The Marin Humane Society’s Cat Fund was established in 1992 to improve the quality of life for Marin cats, to expand shelter cat services, and to reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens in our community.

This fund sponsors low-cost spay and neuter clinics throughout the county, provides funding for veterinary care to elderly cats 8 years of age and older as part of the Senior Partners Program, gives financial support to cats in need of emergency care, and much more.

Pet Orphans' Good Samaritan program assists the public with funds towards the cost of emergency medical care that low income families so desperately need to help save their beloved family pets. We receive approximately 4,000 inquiries a year, many of which are for animals that have been hit by a car, need tumors removed, hospitalization, and other unexpected emergency situations that may arise. Pet Orphans offers this help under the agreement that the family pay back low monthly installments on the medical care that they receive (based upon income and affordability) so that the plan can continue funding for others in need.

Unfortunately our funds are very limited at this time, but we hope to get the program up and running to its full capacity soon. All of Pet Orphans' wonderful programs are funded by generous donations from the public. We are always looking for help to keep life-saving programs such as Good Samaritan up and running. This program really does mean the difference between life and death for many animals in the community.

Our Mission Statement:
The Mosby Foundation is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, to assist in the care of sick, injured, abused and neglected dogs through financial support and public education.

The Mosby Foundation would like to help everyone who asks for aid. However, this is simply not possible. Due to the overwhelming number of applications we receive daily and the limited funds we have to work with, we simply cannot help everyone. Please e-mail us with a brief description of your dog's medical condition and your situation. Our priority for accepting an application for funding will continue to be a life-saving emergency confirmed by a licensed veterinarian either by fax or phone.

Funds pledged will be available for 60 days after the date they were originally pledged.  After that time they will not be available.

To apply for a grant, e-mail
info@themosbyfoundation.org

Please remember we are an ALL VOLUNTEER organization and frequently it will take a while to respond to your request.

The Mosby Foundation is an all volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization specializing in paying medical expenses for sick, abused and neglected dogs. Many of these dogs have been abandoned with  no one to speak on their behalf, or to help them live the lives all dogs are meant to live. Others have owners with limited means for providing adequate medical attention for their pets. Completion of an application requesting financial assistance is required.  Verification of medical need and medical services is made with the attending veterinary hospital.  Each request is reviewed individually to determine the amount of funding the applicant could receive. Payment is made directly to the attending hospital.  The Mosby Foundation also offers the following programs for assistance:  Spay/Neuter fund and Humane Education for elementary schools.
