The Pet Emergency Fund is an animal assistance organization that helps defray the cost of emergency veterinary care for owners unable to meet the expense of the services.

* 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.
