Having Trouble Affording Your Pet?
Below is a comprehensive list of pet financial aid-related organizations, listed alphabetically by state.

If your organization is offering assistance (such as pet food, discounted veterinary services including spay/neuter, temporary foster care, etc.) to individuals who are facing financial difficulties due to the current economic situation, please let us know about your programs by emailing

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Adding help for Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada:

Vancouver Sun--Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada--

Free veterinary clinic: The SPCA runs a monthly free vet clinic at Mission Possible, 543 Powell St. 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.

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.

Note--Mission Possible is also the site of Charlie's Food Bank, a pet food pantry.

Chattanooga, Tennessee-

Chattanooga Times Free Press March 20, 2009

"With the economy and home foreclosures making it harder for people to care for their animals, the Humane Educational Society’s Feed the Animals program can be critical for people and pets in the community.

"Created by David Hutton, Humane Educational Society animal protection services manager, the program helps prevent pet owners with financial issues from having to surrender their pets into shelters.

"In the last year and a half, the shelter has given out thousands of dollars worth of food, shelter, free alteration and other critical surgeries to help people who have lost their jobs or have some other serious reason that they cannot give their animals the care they desperately need, according to a recent HES newsletter.

“"I am proud of the amount of animals the program has been able to help and only hope that people continue to give to help those less fortunate,” Mr. Hutton said.

"Donations to the program can be made by calling the shelter at 624-5302, ext. 222, or visiting
