Nashville, TN 37202

Serving homeless pet owners and those who live at or below the poverty level in Davidson County.

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.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare has 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. The free and subsidized services are income based.

The Southern Alliance for Animal Welfare reaches out to pet owners who feel intimidated by full service veterinary clinics because they just do not have the financial resources to pay their prices. Many of these pet owners have the desire and ability to become responsible pet owners; they just need a helping hand in getting to that level.

Brown Dog Foundation

At Brown Dog Foundation it is our mission to offer pet owners in temporary financial crisis an alternative to euthanasia when their pet faces a treatable life-threatening condition in order to restore the quality of life for pet and owner.


http://www.browndogfoundation.org/process

Brown Dog Foundation does not currently offer pre-approval assistance in emergency cases.  Nor do we issue approvals by phone or email. 

We can "fast-track" our process in most cases (a 1-day response when all parties cooperate fully and immediately).  The typical process takes anywhere from 2-5 business days, depending upon the requirements of treatments. 


More details at link.

http://www.browndogfoundation.org/prequal

Treatments we consider funding
Surgery related to correctible immobility of pet when the life fo the pet is in danger
Exploratory surgery when the life of the pet is in danger
Treatable cancers (Stages I-III)
Treatable neurological disorders
Diagnosis and initial treatment of on-going conditions/diseases (except cancer)
Treatable organ disorders (organ must not be in failure)
Limb removal (when the animal's life is truly at-risk)
Palliative Treatment for End of Life cases


Life-saving treatment and Rehabilitation treatment programs available in TN only; assistance with prescription medications and disaster relief available in and outside of TN.

Shelbyville Times Gazette January 27, 2010

"The clinic, a nonprofit organization located at 738B North Main, offers spaying and neutering services at reduced prices to low income families, as well as to anyone who adopts a pet from a shelter or humane association.

""They have to show some paperwork, some proof they adopted the animals," said Warren, who is the president of the MTSNC.

""They can be adopted from any shelter in the area, like Coffee or Lincoln counties," said Betzelberger. "We're regional."

"Those wishing to claim the low fee because of their financial situation need to fill out an application. They can be found at www.mtsnc.org, as well as in a box just outside the clinic door.


http://www.mtsnc.org/index_files/Page351.htm

Application page link.

""If you're on food stamps or have children on free or reduced lunches, you qualify," said Warren.

"In fact, said Betzelberger, some people may qualify and not even know it.

""It's pretty liberal," she said. "The rates allow the majority of the folks in the county to use us."

For information or to get on the waiting list for your area please call 615-444-1196.

The Spay Station is a 33-foot mobile veterinary clinic owned and operated by New Leash on Life. We began operation in April of 2000. Since then we have performed over 40,000 spay / neuter surgeries for low income pet owners who could not otherwise afford it. The Spay Station serves pets whose owners demonstrate financial need and operates 100% on private donations.

We concentrate our efforts in Wilson County - Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown but to date have visited the following counties: Cheatham, Sumner, Davidson, Trousdale, Smith, Dekalb, Dickson, Lincoln, Perry, Rutherford, Knox, White, Williamson, Maury, Putnam, Robertson, Jackson, and Cumberland Counties.  Organizations in other counties sponsor clinics in their area.

To qualify for our services one must demonstrate financial need by participating in any of the following programs: food stamps, public housing, disability, WIC, Families First, SSI or Medicaid. Clients are asked to make a donation of whatever they can afford. Our goal is to sterilize those pets who, without our program, would never be spayed or neutered.
Those cats and dogs that would be adding to the pet overpopulation problem which results in suffering and the continued need for euthanasia of healthy animals whose only crime was being born.
