Note-this is for dogs only.

The Mosby Foundation
P.O. Box 218
Deerfield, VA 24432

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.

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.

Richmond Animal League
11401 International Drive
Richmond, VA  23236
Phone: 804-379-0046
Fax: 804-378-7507

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.
