Oregon-Brookings-Curry County-

South Coast Animal Shelter

"Our Crisis-Emergency program assists pet owners in emergency situations who do not have the funds for immediate surgery or treatment for their pet. SCHS evaluates each case with the owner and local veterinarians.
"First, SCHS gets an estimated cost of treatment for the pet from the local veterinarians.

"Next, an evaluation is performed on the owner's ability to pay expenses. If an owner is unable to repay SCHS in full, we may ask the owner to volunteer to help with fund raisers, community events or give a hand at the SCHS Thrift Shop. Promissory notes & volunteer contracts are utilized to keep track of commitments.

"For more information about this program, please contact S.C.H.S at (541) 412-0325.

"SCHS works with area veterinarians to provide low cost spaying or neutering for those who qualify for assistance. We offer this service to help curtail the over population of cats and dogs in our area. S.C.H.S. follows an early spay neuter program for all canines and felines. No animal will be adopted out without being spayed or neutered.

Spay Alabama

Spay Alabama's goal is to end the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats in Alabama. The program was set into motion by Lynne Fridley of Maddie’s Fund, and Esther Mechler, Founder of SPAY USA. The program provides a single center, a single phone call that accesses all sorts of useful information regarding the various spay/neuter delivery systems, clinics and programs statewide. This means that even people in the poorest, most isolated parts of the state can, with a single (free) phone call, find their nearest affordable spay/neuter program and how to get help. We also identify areas of no service and help get programs started in those areas.
A single toll free number will eliminate confusion and runaround. Toll free numbers afford accessibility to everyone, even those without computers. Other developments include new high volume spay/neuter clinics in Birmingham and Montgomery and a spay/neuter car tag program is now accepting orders.

"Good news for all two-legged and four-legged Macon County residents! In the interest of the public health and safety of the citizens of Macon County and the well being of the County’s animals, the Macon County Humane Society (MCHS) is pleased to announce the implementation of a new low cost spay/neuter program.

"Pet-owning residents of Macon County who meet the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) definition of low income and qualified fulltime students at Tuskegee University in Macon County may apply to the MCHS for financial assistance for low cost sterilization (“fixing”) of their dogs and cats.

"Financial assistance is based on household income. To qualify, applicants must meet the income limits for Macon County as defined by HUD for 2006. This means that financial assistance will be provided to those pet owners whose household incomes fit HUD’s definition of “30% of median, very low, and low.”

"Pet owners with proof of having Class A income will pay $5 for each pet’s surgery and pre-operative work-up; Class B income will pay $15 for the first two pets and $5 for each additional pet; and Class C income will pay $25 for their first two pets and $5 for each additional pet.

"The balance of the qualified pet’s surgical fee will be paid with funding from a grant from the Alabama Animal Control Association, fund-raising activities by the Macon County Humane Society, and the goodwill and surgical expertise of Tuskegee University’s Small Animal Hospital."

We understand that this may be frustrating, but we are endeavoring to help as many people as we can.

"If your pet is in need of immediate veterinary care where any delay will put the animal at risk, it is your responsibility and duty to take the animal to the veterinarian. Do not wait to talk with our counselor and please be aware that by doing so there is no guarantee that we will be able to provide you with any financial assistance. Your pet’s health must take priority.

"If you qualify for assistance, your pet must be spayed/neutered or you must agree to have the animal sterilized at the time you seek medical attention. We will help you pay for the spay/neuter in addition to the medical assistance.

"If you qualify for assistance, you will be directed to a low-cost veterinarian in your area who has agreed to work with us to offer lower costs, and provided with a financial pledge to help pay for the procedure."

Abandoned cats are given a thorough medical exam, tested, altered and put up for adoption as often as foster care can be found. To date, several hundred animals have been saved and are now in forever indoor homes. Over 75 cans of cat food and 10 bags of dry food are used weekly in this program. Money raised comes through fundraising, grants and donations.

Spay Today Voucher programs

These programs help low-income and senior citizens with the price of altering. As money permits, caretakers are given help with the cost of altering colony cats. Yearly, the organization spends thousands of dollars in efforts to curtail the cat overpopulation. Monies for these programs are raised though donations, fundraising and grant writing.

Before seeking PET Help, PAHS requests that you first seek Care Credit assistance. Care Credit is a nationwide financial assistance program offered to help the public with health expenses, including veterinary care for pets in need. Click here to apply and proceed.

Spay and Neuter Fund
Spay and Neuter Fund provides funding of spay and neuter surgeries at Palo Alto Animal Services via free “vouchers”. These vouchers are for pets of owners in financial need.
Because spaying and neutering is vital to humane work - controlling pet overpopulations and the resultant euthanasias which often follow at shelters - PAHS is happy to help you get your dog, cat, rabbit or other pet spayed or neutered. One spay or neuter surgery provides a lifetime of peace and prevents many lifetimes of suffering. Vouchers are provided to Palo Alto Animal Services. They assess financial need, disseminate the vouchers, and will schedule your pet’s appointment. Palo Alto Animal Services is located at 3281 E. Bayshore Rd. in Palo Alto. For further information, please contact either PAHS at (650) 424-1901 or Palo Alto Animal Services directly at (650) 496-5971.

Our Mission: Provide HOPE* to keep families together and prevent homeless animals
(help to owners with pet expenses)

Pets provide comfort during tough times, so it is important now more than ever to help people keep their pets so they don't have to storm the tragedy of losing their home and/or job alone. We know quite a few pet owners would rather go hungry or share their food with their pet, rather than have the pet go hungry. Our mission is to help provide food for the pets, to keep food on the table for people. We offer continuous food assistance to pets in the Colorado Springs/El Paso County area and emergency pet food services to the state of Colorado.

We are advocates for spaying and neutering pets and the humane treatment of all beings, including humans. We work with several local food pantries, churches, human services agencies, animal rescues, and the animal shelter in an attempt to reach those most in need. Our services include:

A pet food bank for families & organizations in need
A pet supply service from collars, leashes, beds, and other pet care products
Offering referrals to low cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics
Offering referrals for those seeking pet friendly housing

In 2008, Harrison Memorial medical staff provided veterinary care to more than 12,000 sick and injured animals. Harrison Memorial also provides spay/neuter surgeries to the community to help control pet overpopulation, as well as providing discounted spay/neuter surgeries to homeless animals in the care of rescue groups.

Harrison Memorial Animal Hospital Services
• Spay and neuter surgeries, available to the general public.
• Veterinary services to pets of income-qualified clients.
• Spay and neuter surgeries, trauma services,  diagnostic, medical, and surgical services for Denver area shelter or rescue organizations.
• Vaccination and microchipping clinics in low-income neighborhoods.

Harrison Memorial Mercy Fund

Often, individuals without any economic resources seek veterinary care for their animals at Harrison Memorial. To help alleviate turning away any suffering animal, a Mercy Fund has been established. The fund provides fully subsidized veterinary care for animals whose owners have no economic resources to pay for veterinary care.

Harrison Memorial Angel Fund

Harrison Memorial’s Angel Fund allows compassionate individuals to care for their pets even when they cannot afford to do so. The Angel Fund is made possible by donations from caring individuals such as yourself to provide needed veterinary care for pets of those less fortunate.

We provide the necessary medical treatment for sick or injured feral cats, stray cats, and kittens. We are working to find homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We also provide education about spay neuter, and we are assisting other cat rescue groups with trap, neuter, and return programs.

District of Columbia-Washington DC-

Washington Animal Rescue League
71 Oglethorpe Street, NW
Washington, DC 20011
Medical Center: 202-726-CARE (2273)

The Washington Animal Rescue League opened its Medical Center in 1996 to treat shelter animals and provide full-service, low-cost veterinary care to the pets of low-income neighbors. It sees nearly 7,000 dogs and cats each year.

What Services Are Available At The Medical Center?

The Medical Center provides routine physical exams, vaccines, spaying and neutering, other surgeries, emergency care, dental work, and treatment of diseases and injuries.

The Medical Center holds a special low-cost vaccination and microchip clinic every Wednesday evening from 5:00 until 7:00. Vaccinations for rabies, canine distemper/parvovirus (DHPP), feline "distemper" (FVRCP), canine bordatella (“kennel cough”), and feline leukemia cost $10 each.   No appointments are necessary and there is no limit as to how many animals an individual can bring to the clinic.  Microchips are also available for $25.

Who Can Use the Medical Center?

The Medical Center accepts appointments from income-qualified residents of the District of Columbia. If interested, call the clinic at 202-726-CARE for a means test. All clinic patients must be spayed or neutered, but the Medical Center can arrange to have this done free of charge for clients who qualify for financial assistance.

How do I contact the Medical Center?

Please call (202) 726-CARE for an appointment.

The Love Fund

The Washington Animal Rescue League's Love Fund provides funding support for emergency care for seriously injured animals who are abandoned or live with low-income residents in our community who cannot afford the costs of major surgery.

Crain's Detroit Business November 15, 2009

"The Michigan Humane Society's belief that pets are an important part of any family spurred it to launch a program to keep pets with their owners during financial hardship.

"To that goal, the Bingham Farms-based nonprofit is subsidizing low-cost and no-cost vaccinations for pets, sterilization surgeries, discounted veterinary care, free pet food and free behavior assistance for pets of local families facing difficult times."

Saint Francis Animal Hospital
3615 Dupont Avenue  Site 1400
Jacksonville, FL 32217
Phone:  67-GRACE  (904-674-7223)

St. Francis Animal Hospital is for everybody.  By that, we mean that we want to include all pet owners, regardless of their financial situation.  We want to help take care of the pets whose owners are financially disadvantaged.  Ultimately we want to be able to help provide subsidized medical care for pets whose owners otherwise could not afford it.  However, we don't want to exclude pet owners who have their own financial means.  Pet owners who have financial means can enjoy our reasonably priced care and via their patronage can help support us in fulfilling our purpose.
When we are able to start providing subsidized services, there will be a partial subsidy for those with low income qualifications based on their household income and or proof of government assistance.  There will be an even greater subsidy offered for those with the most extreme demonstrable financial circumstances.

St. Francis Animal Hospital is a 501C3 tax exempt nonprofit corporation.  It is a one-of-a kind veterinary clinic in Jacksonville and a rare breed nationally.
Our ultimate purpose is to make pet health care available to all owned pets regardless of the pet owner's ability to pay.
We provide preventative health care services.  These include checkups (physical exams), basic diagnostic tests, vaccinations, and sterilization surgeries (spays and neuters), for dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens.  We will also offer heartworm prevention and flea control.  Later we hope to provide more advanced diagnostic medical and surgical treatments.

You can still participate and use our services at St. Francis!  No qualification is required to take advantage of our low prices for vaccines and surgeries!  We just ask that you be as generous as you can, as often as you can, by making a donation (tax deductible) in addition to paying your bill (not tax deductible).  You are not, however, obligated to do so.

Low-cost spay/neuter, shots and some tests.

Anyone May Participate
No Income Qualifications
Citizens of Any County Are Welcome
No Limit on Number of Pets
Appointments always available within 2 weeks
Any Other Suggested Services Are Optional, Not Required
Young Age Spays / Neuters Welcome

Who Are Pet Project Clients?
We currently have multiple service, the foodbank for which we do charge a fee and vaccinations, heart worm medication and flea medication which are free. The amount a client pays is based on an objective numerical analysis of a client’s income and expenses. A prospective client’s low income status is confirmed by having a client fill out an extensive financial profile demonstrating their level of income and expenses. At intake, a client verifies their income by showing an intake staff person their SSD/SSI check stub, or bank statement with the SSD/SSI deposit on it; a paycheck stub; an affidavit that they are unemployed and have no other source of income, etc.

Clients living at or below poverty level, according to the Federal Poverty Guidelines, automatically receive a 90% subsidy (the highest subsidy we offer).
The cost to the client is then determined by the food choices, he or she makes, multiplied by the food subsidy factor. Before a client comes on line, they sign and return a copy of the explanation of their subsidy and cost and pick-up schedule.

The Pet Project limits its services to low income people living with living with a severely disabling or terminal disease. The Pet Project provides equal opportunity for access to services for all low income people living with chronic and debilitating or life threatening illnesses, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran status, age, or sex.

Services available to clients:

A food bank of low cost pet food.
Home delivery of pet food for clients with limited mobility.
Discounted and/or low cost annual vaccinations, including heart worm prevention.
Referrals to discounted and/or low cost basic veterinary services.

Referals to discounted and/or low cost spay/neuter services.

Program Name Life-Savers
Financial assistance for indigent animals with life-threatening medical emergencies.
Vision It is the goal of LifeSavers that no companion animal should ever have to suffer in pain or die because their caretaker does not have the funds available to get the necessary veterinary care to save its’ life.
Mission The mission of LifeSavers is to provide financial assistance for animals suffering from life-threatening conditions that require specific and immediate veterinary care.
Owners who are struggling financially are faced with a difficult decision that often results in the pet being “put to sleep” for an otherwise treatable condition.
Summary The LifeSaver Fund will provide financial assistance to indigent owners of animals in need of life-saving medical assistance. The LifeSaver program empowers veterinarians to treat animals in need and receive just compensation for their professional skills. Veterinarians decide who is eligible and who will receive a grant under program guidelines. Final grant approval verifies that funds are available and allocated to cover treatment cost.

Note--the link is not working but the program is still very much active:

Would suggest contacting AAA for information about Life Savers.  AAA also has a low cost spay/neuter program available:

As well as catsnip--spay and neuter for outdoor cats. AAA also sponsors Wellpet, a full service veterinary clinic:
