The Spay/Neuter Clinic offers spaying and neutering services, vaccinations, and parasite treatments for cats and dogs. Low-cost services are available to the public, and we offer subsidized rates for low-income clients and TNR practitioners.

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."

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.

The Feral Cat Feeding, Rescuing and Altering programs

Volunteers provide daily food for several cat colonies living in a large county park encompassing several hundred acres. Feral cats are trapped, tested, vaccinated, altered and returned to their colonies. 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.

Cases are assessed individually, and financial assistance is offered on a loan basis. Expect to demonstrate financial need. 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. If you are denied Care Credit and need further assistance with veterinary expenses for your pet, please contact PAHS to discuss application procedures.

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

At Forgotten Cats, our mission is to reduce the unwanted cat population without killing and to stop the suffering of the thousands of kittens born to abandoned, homeless cats.

We do this by working with colony caretakers to trap, sterilize, vaccinate, and return every cat within a colony. 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.

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 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.

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

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.

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.

The mission of Spay Neuter Idaho Pets, Inc. (SNIP) is to reduce animal overpopulation by establishing and maintaining reduced-cost spay/neuter services for dogs, domestic cats and feral cat trap-neuter-return programs. We plan to promote humane education through schools and community outreach programs and develop a mobile spay/neuter service for underserved Idaho locations. By collaborating with local animal welfare organizations and veterinarians on these activities, we will leverage resources and expand and accelerate our impacts. We will primarily serve Ada and Canyon counties, but will accept animals from other counties as availability permits. Our focus is to serve feral cats and pets whose owners cannot afford spay/neuter services. The reduced-cost fees for clinic services will offset operating costs. Public donations and grants will help to subsidize the surgeries that pet owners cannot afford to pay.

Low cost shot clinic: Zamzow's 2nd Saturday of each month. Contact Zamzow's for details.

On the first day of every month we sell spay/neuter vouchers for $35 each. There is a limit of one voucher per household per month due to high demand. If you are interested in receiving a voucher, we recommend that you arrive at the shelter by 11:00 a.m. on the first because it is "first come first serve" and there is usually a line. The shelter does not open until 12:00 p.m. We usually sell out of the vouchers within one hour's time.

Be prepared. In order to receive a voucher, you must have $35 IN CASH. Checks and credit cards are not accepted. The voucher is also not refundable, even if lost.
At the time you purchase a voucher you will receive a list of veterinarians.

FERAL CAT PROGRAM (Champaign County only): Suggested minimum donation is $10 (male or female), and the animal will have its left ear clipped (as seen in the photo on the left).  Eartipping is a painless procedure done under anesthesia (during the spay/neuter surgery) where the top of the left ear is cut straight across.  It is a universal sign to animal control officers that a cat is wild, but is fixed and vaccinated.

Low Income Vaccinations:

The Animal Care League understands that everyone wants the best care possible for their pets, but may be faced with financial difficulties.  While we recommend that every pet has an annual examination, consultation, and vaccinations or other tests and treatments from their full service veterinarian, we know that is not an option for everyone.  The Animal Care League offers afternoon appointments for low cost vaccinations and basic veterinary medical care to families that qualify as being low income.  To qualify, the family must present either a State of Illinois ID card confirming that they are on State's assistance OR a current W-2 form showing they earn less than $20,000 per year.  For these appointments the DA2PP and FVRCP vaccinations cost $20 and rabies vaccinations with a Cook Co. rabies tag cost $15 for all animals. Appointments are required to receive vaccinations which can be made by phoning the shelter (708)848-8155 or visiting us in person at the address above.

Low Cost Spay/Neuter:

We believe that responsible pet ownership is the best way to reduce the number of unwanted animals on the streets and in the shelter systems.  We offer low cost spay and neuter surgeries in the Animal Care League’s Clinic at 1011 Garfield Ave in Oak Park, IL.  All surgeries are performed by a licensed Veterinarian. 

Surgeries must be scheduled in advance. No walk-ins will be accepted. To make an appointment, either call the shelter at (708)848-8155 or visit us in person at the address above.


The Animal Care League will microchip a companion animal for $15 for anyone wishing this service. Appointments are required and can be made by phoning (708)848-8155 or visiting the shelter at the address above.

The Anderson Humane Society is proud to announce that we have recently received a spay/neuter grant from the state and would like to offer discounted spay/neuter vouchers to those in our community who have pets that have not been “fixed”. This program is open to Anderson County residents only, and is limited to two vouchers per household per month. There will be a small co-pay for each pet, depending on species, gender, and size. Co-pays range from $20 to $35.

Last year, the Humane Society took in over 1,000 stray, abandoned, or unwanted animals. A strong spay/neuter initiative is the solution to lowering our intake rate, and will in turn decrease our euthanasia rate due to overcrowding of the shelter. Our adoption rates will increase due to less “free” puppies and kittens being given away in the community.

We strongly urge you to apply to participate in our discount voucher program, and want to note that this program is NOT limited to low-income families. Anyone can participate in our program, no matter how high or low their income.

Spay and Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP):

Each client completes SNAP application.  The SNAP program is for individual pet owners who need assistance in getting their pets spayed or neutered.
The client pays as much as they can afford of the cost of the spay/neuter surgery. Friends of the Shelter will pay any remaining expense for the operation, keeping in mind that the more each client pays, the more people we can help.

In addition, each animal will receive current vaccinations costing between $9.00 and $16.00, and paid for by the client. This means that the client will pay at least $9.00/animal, and then as much of the remaining cost of surgery as they desire.

At least once each year the FOS hosts a free clinic for for pet owners who need financial assistance in getting their pet spayed or neutered. These clinics are for cats or dogs that are in good health who old enough for the spay/neuter surgery, and for pet owners who qualify for the financial assistance.
Each clinic will spay or neuter as many as 80 animals, providing basic health checkups on each along with some vaccinations. The clinics are funded through the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and are are limited to families earning no more than $15,000 a year, or to elderly or disabled individuals living on Social Security. Proof of income is required.

While we cannot pay the entire fee for an animal to be neutered, the guardian/owner is only responsible for one-third of the final cost - the SPCA pays one-third with the participating veterinary practice covering the remaining third.

PCA also defrays the cost of treating animals that are victims of cruelty and abuse. In 2006, the fund distributed over $363,000 to support the treatment of thousands of animals. Annual contributions, special events, and endowment income sustain the fund.

For more information, contact Kathleen Santry at (617) 541-5075 or email If you would like to apply for financial assistance, please contact our Financial Office at (617) 541-5028 or 5030. Please note: Pet Care Assistance benefits patients and clients treated at the MSPCA-Angell only.

SNAP helps reduce the number of unwanted kittens and puppies born each year. As of June 2008, this program has issued more than 100,000 certificates for reduced-price spay/neuter operations in communities throughout Massachusetts.

SNAP discount certificates are accepted by nearly 200 veterinary hospitals or clinics throughout Massachusetts.

You may apply for assistance only for your own pets. If you have more than one pet that you would like to have spayed or neutered, please use the comment section of the form to describe the other pet(s).

P. O. Box 1756

Our Mission: To provide financial assistance for the rehabilitative veterinary treatment of critically ill or injured dogs and cats, whose caregivers cannot afford treatment or who are found without known care givers, thereby offering an alternative to euthanasia and preserving the unique emotional, social and beneficial bonds that tie animals and humans together.

Since its inception in the mid-1980s, the Fund has provided financial assistance for sick or injured cats and dogs who need substantial veterinary care too costly for their owners to bear alone. The Fund works with committed and dedicated animal hospitals on Cape Cod and the Islands to provide this assistance. These hospitals have contracted with the Fund to provide services at reduced cost. The owner of the animal pays a small percentage of this negotiated reduced amount. The Sampson Fund then pays all or a substantial portion of the remainder through monies allocated to the veterinarian.
The Fund also helps injured or sick strays. The Fund thus makes every effort to see that no cat or dog on Cape Cod and the Islands will be denied needed veterinary care or euthanized due solely to the lack of resources.

C-SNIP may be able to help with some of the surgery costs in some cases. If you need such assistance or know of someone who does contact the clinic at 616-455-8220 or e-mail

Beginning in January 2009, the Beartooth Humane Alliance will once again provide vouchers to qualified Carbon County residents for low-cost spay-neuter services for dogs and cats. The program aims to help reduce pet overpopulation by providing pet sterilization services to county residents who cannot afford the procedure for their pets, such as families with limited incomes, senior citizens on fixed incomes, and hardship situations.

The vouchers will be honored at Grizzly Peak Animal Hospital (Red Lodge), Bridger Veterinary Clinic (Bridger), and Red Lodge Veterinary Clinic (Red Lodge) beginning January 1 until available funding is exhausted.  Residents will make a co-payment of $5 for a male cat, $29 for a female cat, $35 for a male dog weighing less than 100 lbs, $50 for a male dog weighing 100 lbs or more, and $47 - $59 for a female dog (depending on the dog’s weight).  The vouchers are for pets -- no feral cats, please.

If you are in a low-income situation and wish to have your pet sterilized, you can obtain a voucher application by calling 672-6960 or by filling out the application and mailing it with your co-payment to BHA. When your application is approved, BHA will mail you a voucher with program details. See our information sheet for more details, including qualification criteria.

All that is required is a small monetary donation from the pet owner (an amount of their chosing) and then the RHS will pay the remainder of the bill to the participating vet clinics. This is a win/win/win situation for all involved! The vets are getting full payment for their surgeries, the owner is getting a healthier pet at a much lower cost and the Rimrock Humane Society is getting closer to their goal of helping to control pet overpopulation.

Spay/Neuter vouchers are available to anyone in the Omaha metro area who requests a voucher, but this organization will primarily assist cat owners in lower-income areas.

To many of us a $50.00 medical bill at the vet is nothing, but for an elderly person on a fixed income, a single mother, a student, and for many others, it's an impossibility.

There are many instances of elderly people doing without their own medicine or even food in order to care for their animals' medical needs.

So what do you do if you love your animal but can't afford to pay the bill?  

Shakespeare Animal Fund, a non-profit charity was founded after the loss of a beloved Cocker Spaniel "Shakespeare". He died after a very costly illness, and in his memory this fund was founded to help others who might face financial problems while trying to save their pet. Let Shakespeare help you!

People in the Northern Nevada / Lake Tahoe area can apply for funds, but we offer assistance primarily to those on fixed incomes or with annual incomes below $23,000. It is always a one-time grant.

To apply for assistance call 775-342-7040.

We help elderly, disabled and those whose total income does not exceed $23,000 to obtain emergency pet care. We pay the veterinarian directly, reducing out of pocket costs for low income pet owners who need to save their pet's life.
Acceptable emergencies:

Hit by car
Toxin exposure
Bite wounds
Urinary tract infections
Upper respiratory infections/pneumonia
Laceration repairs
Abscess (including anal sac)
Straining to eliminate
Difficulty breathing
Torn toenails

Microchip Clinic/Tag Day

In conjunction with the low-cost rabies clinic, the Concord-Merrimack County SPCA holds a low-cost microchip clinic and tag day. We recommend that all pets wear both an ID tag and be microchipped. The ID tag allows for a quick return of a lost pet. However, they are only effective if the collar remains on the pet. A microchip, which is inserted under the skin, provides lifetime identification. Collars and ID tags for both dogs and cats are available at the clinic. Purchase of a Concord-Merrimack County ID tag includes registration in the shelter's database. Purchase of a microchip includes registration in the manufacturer's national database as well as the shelter's database. Microchip insertion is administered by area vets who volunteer their services for the clinic and the low cost of the chip ($20) is made possible by a grant from the Alice Reen Trust, administered by the Charter Trust.

How to get low cost veterinary services:

The goal of NY SAVE is for any pet owner residing in one of the five boroughs of New York City who is truly in need of financial assistance to be able to take their pet to any participating veterinary hospital for emergency veterinary care. Pet owners can apply directly to NY SAVE or obtain services through a referral by a veterinarian who is a member of the Veterinary Medical Association of New York City.

Pet owners who wish to reach the Association for referrals to VMA members may visit its website at, or call 212-246-0057 (Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.). E-mail:

Veterinarians participating in the program will reduce their fees in order to care for animals accepted for treatment under NY SAVE. The pets treated through NY SAVE will receive the same level of care as any other veterinary patients. After treating the emergency condition, the veterinarian will institute the appropriate therapy for the continued stabilization of your pet.

Emergency Assistance Fund

Pets are a vital part of many families, yet every year more than one million pets go without critical veterinary care in the United States.  Although there is a financial responsibility in caring for a beloved pet, it is devastating when an owner’s financial situation makes them unable to provide veterinary care for a treatable, yet life-threatening condition.  Often animals are euthanized, or suffer needlessly, because their owners cannot afford medical treatment or life-sustaining medication.  Unfortunately, this heartbreak is all too familiar to the elderly, the disabled, those on a fixed income, or others who may be experiencing financial hardship.

It is our objective to offer pet owners in financial crisis an alternative to euthanasia when their pet faces a treatable yet life-threatening condition.

Due to our limited funding availability, only pets seen at Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center are eligible for consideration.  We are designed as a one-time benefit in most situations.

The Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association Companion Animal Foundation was launched in the fall of 2004 to help low-income individuals and families afford the proper and necessary medical care for their pets.
 Veterinarians initiated the Foundation in response to the myriad instances in which pet owners could not afford to manage their pet’s medical issues, which in many cases would lead to euthanasia of the companion or a situation where the human-animal bond was adversely affected.  Many of these patients were treasured family members, and the lack of their owners’ ability to provide for their care was difficult for all concerned.  

Statewide, there are a limited number of programs for pet owners to receive financial assistance for spay/neuter procedures, and even fewer for routine or emergency (trauma) care.

How do I apply for Companion Animal Foundation funding?

Ask your veterinarian if there is funding available through his or her practice. Each practice has application forms for you to fill out. Your answers to the questions will let the veterinarian know if you qualify for funding.

What if I don't have a veterinarian yet?

You can find a veterinarian in your area by downloading our CAF Vet Clinic by Location document (PDF).

Find a Vet link.

Who is eligible for CAF funding?

CAF guidelines stipulate that funding can only go to those individuals who qualify under low-income criteria. You must utilize at least one of the social service programs or make less than the federal poverty level amount listed on the application form. Please visit Grant Guidelines for more information.

Do I need to present proof that I qualify?

No. Your signature says that you have answered the questions accurately and also that you will present proof, if required, during an audit. If the audit determines that you did not use services to qualify as you claimed, you will need to repay the Companion Animal Foundation.

Will my pet's care be paid for if I qualify?

Your veterinarian has a limited amount of funding available each year, and this might impact whether you will be able to receive a funding donation for your pet's care. Most commonly, a percentage of your pet's care will be funded.

Does my veterinarian have to be in Rhode Island?

No. The Companion Animal Foundation is available to all veterinarians who are members of the Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association. Some RIVMA member veterinarians practice in nearby areas of Massachusetts or Connecticut. But you must be a Rhode Island resident to qualify for assistance.

The Rhode Island Veterinary Medical Association is proud to offer a low-cost spay/neuter program (SNAP) to residents of Rhode Island who meet the financial qualifications.

The Fund may contribute up to 50% of the total cost, with a maximum of $1000 per case. The animal must also have a treatable disease or injury.

Emergency Care Assistance Program

Hannah was brought to the Animal Trustees clinic in late 2005 in a cardboard box. She was 11-weeks-old and had been shot in the leg and left at an office complex here in Austin. Her leg was terribly infected and she was just skin and bones, but her tail started wagging when we lifted her out of the box. It was if she knew that we would help her… and we did.

It took seven months, but after several surgeries and much care, her leg finally healed.

Hannah is only one of many dogs and cats that ATA has helped each year by covering the cost of their care.

In some cases these are owned animals brought in by their guardians desperate for help and knowing that they cannot pay for emergency treatment out of pocket. Others are animals brought into ATA by good Samaritans stopping to help animals injured on the road. In all cases, these animals would likely die without immediate intervention and because of our partnership with Austin Vet Care at Central Park and Animal Medical Center, they received all the care they needed.

Spay/Neuter Incentive Program

I. The S.N.I.P. Voucher program is for pet cats and dogs. The program provides a voucher for a pet owner to spay and/or neuter up to three pets in their household for FREE. Since the program's funds are limited, we ask that the voucher be used by pet owners who can not afford this surgery for their pet(s).

II. People may apply for a S.N.I.P. voucher if they are on a financial assistance program like Medicaid, CHIP, Food Stamps, WIC, SSD, Major VA Disability, Section 8 (HUD) or if they have a copy of last year's tax return indicating household income not exceeding the federal low income guidelines. A family of four would need to make less than $33,000 to qualify.

III. When a person applies for a voucher, they must include proof of their income status and/or of the assistance program they are affiliated with. After HSMV approves and processes the application, the person is sent a voucher which can be used at a participating veterinarian. The voucher typically allows for up to three pets to be fixed at no charge. There are some exceptions to this three pet limit and individual arrangements will be made through our office, i.e. for a mother and litter.

Vermont Spay/Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP)

Hundreds of loving, adoptable, animals are killed in VT yearly due to over breeding. There is a program available for Vermonters on State/Federal assistance programs. Send a self addressed stamped envelope (#10) with .61 cents postage to: VSNIP, P.O. Box 100, Bridgewater, VT 05034. Request one application per animal.

A newly created program, the Vermont Spay Neuter Incentive Program (VSNIP) will enable income eligible people that provide care for cats and dogs to receive financial assistance in which to have these animals neutered and vaccinated.

A yearly $3.00 charge to the registration fee for dog licenses supports this program. This modest increase creates a designated fund allowing those on social assistance programs, such as SSI, Food Stamps, Section 8, Medicaid, etc., to obtain financial assistance for these important procedures. The associated costs for vaccinations and surgery are reduced at the participating offices, and the fees are paid to the veterinarians through the designated fund. Clients are responsible for a $25.00 co-payment for each animal. To date, the over eighty offices that have joined this visionary program represent the majority of Vermont veterinarians that provide care for companion animals.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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


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.


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  

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.

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.

Portland, OR 97221

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.

FAQ's for assistance at link.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

"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.

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,, 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.

Food Bank for Pets  
In order to receive financial assistance through Crescendo, each recipient must agree to sign a non-abandonment agreement and must meet certain qualifications.  Click here for the non-abandonment agreement.

Additional Assistance:  For families that need additional financial assistance please call 604-288-6622 and leave a message.

Proposed Pickup Locations:  1. New Westminster,  2. Richmond,  3. North Vancouver

Food Donation Drop Off:  Donations can be dropped to any of our lower mainland locations or at the following local stores.   Please click here.   Crescendo can also schedule to pick up your generous donations on a monthly basis. Please click here for your local _____ pick up time.

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.

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.

"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.

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

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.

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

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.

Florida-Gainesville-Alachua County

St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic
413 S Main Street
Gainesville FL 32601.

The Clinic is open Tuesdays from noon to 2 pm. No appointment is needed. Clients sign up when they arrive and are called when their turn comes.

The St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic is a walk-in facility that operates in quarters provided by St. Francis House, a Gainesville homeless shelter. Kent Vann, Director of the shelter, supported the project from the beginning and cleared space at the back of the building for clinic operations. From noon until 2 pm every Tuesday, experienced veterinarians report to the clinic, assisted by junior and senior veterinary students taking the elective shelter medicine rotation at the University of Florida.

For sterilization surgery, animals are transported to the College of Veterinary Medicine on SW 20th Ave. Under Dr. Isaza's guidance, the students perform about fifty spay-neuter operations weekly — ten to fifteen of them on pets referred by the St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic. Other surgery requiring the expertise of veterinary faculty is also provided when needed.

Until September 2007, the St. Francis House Pet Care Clinic was just a dream. Dale Kaplan-Stein, Gainesville veterinarian, and Chris Machen, community animal advocate, were searching for a way to get veterinary care to the pets of homeless and low-income residents of Alachua County. They wanted to develop a plan that would include free spay-neuter services for residents who couldn't afford them.

When Dr. Kaplan-Stein and Ms. Machen joined forces with Dr. Natalie Isaza, Director of the new Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, they were able to make the dream a reality. The clinic now offers free spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, heartworm and flea preventive drugs, and treament for sickness or injury to the pets of over five hundred local residents.

All services and goods are provided at no charge and include the following:

Spay and neuter surgery
Microchip implantation for pet identification
Treatment for worms
Nail clipping
Vaccines for distemper, rabies, upper respiratory disease, etc.
Flea and heartworm preventive medicines
Medication for ear infections, skin diseases, arthritis pain, and other problems
Pet food
Pet supplies, such as leashes, collars, shampoo, etc.
Consultation services regarding diagnoses, treatment, home care, etc.

Occasionally, pets other than dogs and cats are brought to the clinic. Veterinary care is available for hamsters, gerbils and other small animals if arrangements are made in advance. Owners should contact us for information.

To be eligible for services and pet care supplies, clients must meet income criteria. Earned income is considered first, but services, goods and discounts received from various needs-based programs are also factors. These include disability payments, Section 8 housing, Medicaid services, food stamps, etc.
