We help to keep the cat population down by offering a low cost spay/neuter clinic at our Endicott shelter. this clinic allows people to alter both their own cats and strays they may be feeding. We urge you to call us, even if you believe a spay or neuter would be too expensive. Although we don't alter dogs at our shelter, we do offer limited assistance for dog spay/neuter.

Shamrock Animal Fund
c/o Matt Mulcahy and Jamie Pomilio-Mulcahy
7815 Karakul Lane
Fayetteville, NY 13066
315-415-8563

info@shamrockanimalfund.com

Shamrock has inspired us to start the Shamrock Animal Fund, a not for profit that will provide financial assistance with veterinary costs for animals in need.

These animals will be referred by veterinarians, animal shelters, sanctuaries, rescuers and rehabilitators to participating veterinarians for care.  The funds to assist in this care will go directly to the veterinarians providing it.


http://www.syracusenewtimes.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4047&Itemid=147

Syracuse New Times March 10, 2010

"The Mulcahys are teaming with local vets and other supporters to administer the Shamrock Animal Fund.

“"My wife really conceived the idea that it was very important to fill this gap for animals that may need help in getting veterinary care,” Mulcahy said. “In the last couple of years we spent a lot of time in the offices of veterinarians and made a lot of trips to Cornell. With the wide range of problems that owners of pets face, in addition to the high cost, it’s one thing to have the care available. It’s another to be able to afford to pay for it. So a lot of times, people have to make decisions they wouldn’t otherwise make, because of balancing the love for their pet versus their ability to pay the bill. They don’t have the money, but they love the pet.”

"The fund is designed to serve both animals with families who can’t pay high costs and homeless or shelter pets, with referrals for assistance coming primarily from vets. “Certainly the priority would be with the animals that are in the most need,” Mulcahy explained. “We purposely named it the Shamrock Animal Fund because we want to stay open to the wide range of animals that are out there that are in need. But, having said that, certainly, the preponderance of the animals that are going to get assistance from this are going to be the ones that are most familiar to us: dogs and cats that are part of our lives and part of our homes.”

"Mulcahy and his wife have applied for nonprofit status and are in the process of forming a board of directors for their organization. “Our goal would be to have the Shamrock Animal Fund as a communitywide presence,” he added, “where veterinarians are working along with us and identifying cases of need either in the animal or in whoever’s paying the bill, to work with the Shamrock Animal Fund to bring the care to where it’s needed. We’re hoping this will be something that will become a presence in veterinary offices throughout the area.”

Pet Med Fund-EGG & Dancers

gaiadancecollective@gmail.com

EGG & Dancers, a 501 c 3 organization, registered with New York State Charities Bureau, has been producing dance and arts related events since 1978. Recently the organization has established the Pet Med Fund which aims to keep pets out of shelters and keep them from being euthanized because their owners cannot afford medical care for them. Please help us continue this work by making a donation to the Pet Med Fund of EGG & Dancers.

http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100507/COMM/5070324/-1/SITEMAP

Record Online-Times Record-Herald May 7, 2010

"Liz Geyer saw a need in our pet community, and she is filling it.

"The former New York City Ballet dancer recently created the Pet Med Fund. She hopes the fund will help keep pets in their homes and out of shelters or from being euthanized because of their owner's inability to pay for medical treatment.

"The fund is part of Geyer's EGG & Dancers nonprofit dance company. It will grant money to help pay partial medical expenses for adopted shelter and rescue pets.

""The goal is to keep these animals in their loving homes," said Geyer, "and to keep them out of the shelters and off death row by making grants for needed medical care that otherwise would be unaffordable, due to their owner's unemployment or disability.


""Too many animals are given up to shelters or put down, because their owners cannot afford certain lifesaving treatments."

"Money granted will be based on the pet owner's financial situation and will go directly to the pet's veterinarian.

"Geyer's current group of dancers, Gaia Dance Collective of Pine Island, will hold a benefit for the fund from 3-5 p.m. May 16 at the Full Circle Studio, Black Dirt Dance Center, 198 Glenwood Road, Pine Island. The event also includes poetry, puppetry, silent auction and a 50/50 raffle. Advance tickets are $15; tickets at the door are $20.

"For information on the benefit or applying for help from the Pet Med Fund, call 258-1500 or visit www.gaiadancecollective.blogspot.com. Donations for the fund can be sent to EGG & Dancers, attention Pet Med Fund, 117 Jogee Road, Middletown 10940.

""We are dancing for the animals," said Geyer, "and for all the love they give to us."

Hardeko Helping Paws Pantry
309 S Main Street
North Syracuse, NY 13212
315.410.1278


http://blog.syracuse.com/cny/2010/05/new_dog_daze_pet_food_pantry_cares_for_animals_affected_by_recession.html

Syracuse.com May 11, 2010

New Dog Daze pet food pantry cares for animals affected by recession

"Ruth Sturgis loves animals.

"When she learned that in 2007, at the start of the recession, rescue groups received 4 million animals from Americans who could no longer afford their care, and that rescue groups anticipate 10 million animals to be abandoned this year, Sturgis was amazed.

""Those are staggering numbers. I said 'I've got to do my part.' "

"Sturgis and her husband, David own Dog Daze Healthy Pet Shop in North Syracuse. Now they also operate Hardeko Helping Paws Pantry, a charity that offers "free food and medicine to pets of proud people who have fallen on hard times.

""We're going to give you the food, and we're going to encourage you to pay it forward," Sturgis explains.

"Recently the pantry helped a family, whose mother and father had lost their jobs, continue to feed their dog. They hope people choose some volunteer work, or make donations to the pantry once they are back on their feet as a way to pay the good will forward.

"In addition, Hardeko is pairing with Dog Daze and food manufacturer, Vet's Choice to donate respirators specially made for dogs and other animals who are victims of fires. Some volunteer fire departments in Central New York already have the respirators, but many do not.

""We know we're going to need at least 10 of them, if not more," Sturgis says. "We'd like to cover a 10- to 15-mile radius from the store. We're just going to start from there."

"She said the respirator kit contains a training DVD and manual and a bright orange webbed leash for firefighters to use in leading dogs to safety during overnight house fires - when dogs may lack leashes or collars. It also has three sizes of masks. The smallest are designed to work for cats, ferrets, birds and other small animals."


How can you help?

Three ways:

Donate food, beds, crates, collars, any sort of pet care items to Hardeko; call 410-1278 for details.

If you know someone on the verge of giving up their pet for financial reasons, steer them to the pantry at 309 South Main St., North Syracuse.

If your volunteer fire department in Central New York lacks animal respirators, ask the department to notify Hardeko. The pantry will donate several respirators in the coming months.


Note the pantry is in the shop; the pantry's name is a combination of the Sturgis' 3 dogs.

info@princechunkfoundation.org

The Prince Chunk Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that enables pet owners to keep their pets during times of financial crisis by providing temporary assistance to pet owners throughout New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California. Providing this aid is critical to achieve a lower animal abandonment rate, and most importantly, a lower euthanasia rate nationally.

http://www.princechunkfoundation.org/veterinary-care-assistance.php

The Emergency Veterinary Care Assistance Program provides free emergency care to applicants who are currently experiencing financial hardships. Every day, sick and injured animals are brought to shelters across the country because their owners do not have the means to come up with several hundred or several thousand dollars for emergency medical bills. Sadly, due to most animal shelter funding being insufficient, the animals in need of expensive medical care are usually euthanized.

Pre-Apply!
If you are currently experiencing financial hardship and feel that this program would be useful to you should an emergency occur, please fill out a pre-approval application and submit the required documentation listed below. By applying early, your application can be kept on file and pre-approved, allowing your pet to receive the emergency care they require as quickly as possible. Please be sure to check our “Maximum Family Income Eligibility” Document to ensure you qualify.

Pet Owners who are currently struggling financially are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to pre-apply.

Please note that the processing time for these requests can take up to 2-3 weeks.

If You Are Currently Experiencing a Veterinary Emergency...
If you are currently experiencing a medical emergency with your pet, and are unable to provide the required funding, please print and complete an application immediately and fax it to 856-245-7840.

After faxing your completed application, please contact the Prince Chunk Foundation so we can begin working on your request immediately. Please be sure to check our “Maximum Family Income Eligibility” Document to ensure you qualify.

* The Fund is designed to meet a need in the community that is currently not met by existing organizations.

* The Pet Emergency Fund was implemented by local veterinarians and is intended for a one-time intervention in a life-threatening situation for an otherwise healthy pet.

Q: How old is the PEF?
A: The PEF is a 501c3 organization founded in 1999 by the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society.

Q: Who is eligible to receive PEF assistance?
A: PEF funds are distributed to member hospitals in Erie and Niagara Counties. The fund is intended to be used to benefit the pets of Erie and Niagara Counties. Individual hospitals have their own accounts and funds in individual accounts are used at the discretion of those veterinarians.


Q: What hospitals have PEF accounts?
A: Nearly every NFVS hospital has an individual account. A list of NFVS hospitals can be found at
www.nfvsonline.org

Q: How are funds raised?
A: Funds are raised in a variety of ways. Each participating veterinary hospital has a donation box on display in the reception area. Contributions can be mailed in remittance envelopes available at hospitals to the PEF P.O. box. Contributions can also be made online at this website. New York State employees can make contributions via the United Way. Several volunteers sell cards, photographs, memorial paw print stones, and more to generate funds
