Veterinary Assistance Program

The WHS Veterinary Clinic for low-income households is designed to provide animals equal access to quality pet care, regardless of their owner's ability to pay.
Qualified low-income families whose companion animals need to be spayed or neutered have exclusive access to the fee-for-service clinic. Preventative care is also offered at the time of surgery.

Individuals must be residents of Milwaukee or Ozaukee County and must qualify for subsidized services based on their income. You will be notified of whether or not your animal(s) qualifies for the program. Qualification for services takes place annually.

The WHS veterinary staff maintain the clinic operations. For animals that are accepted into the program, the following services are also offered at the time of the spay/ neuter procedure:

Physical exam
Initial vaccinations
Parasite control

To see if you qualify for the program, please complete the Veterinary Assistance Program Application. After submitting the application, you are required to mail verification of all sources of household income and a $10 deposit for each animal that qualifies for the program. The application cannot be processed without the deposit(s) and the proper documents.

Please mail this information to:
Wisconsin Humane Society Veterinary Assistance Program

Wisconsin-Racine County-

Journal-Times March 21, 2010

"Dwyer, of 2716 Concord Drive, said if he was alderman he would work to establish a sense of community and help residents become more involved. He is also actively involved in animal rights and has recently created a board dedicated to helping provide food assistance and medical assistance to pet owners who cannot afford to pay for their pets' food and medical treatment."


Name: Donald James Dwyer
Occupation: Countryside Humane Society employee
Age: 24
Elected positions: None

Since the board to help with food and medical care has already been established and Mr. Dwyer is a Countyside Humane Society employee with no (yet) elective office, the help should be available through Countryside Humane Society:

You must be a resident of Dane County (verified by driver's license)  -AND-
You must have a Medical Assistance Forward card or Quest card.

Rock County Humane Society--

RCHS partners with two wonderful groups to provide low-cost spay and neuter options to owned animals and their people in our community.  Shelter from the Storm rescue operates SPAY ME! Spay/Neuter Clinic in Madison, WI.  They provide extremely low-cost spay/neuter and additional medical/health services for owners who have a financial need.  No documentation of income level is required, however - simply call them to see how they can help you and your pets!

University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine

Madison, WI 53706

Respond Fund

The RESPOND Fund (REcognizing and Supporting Pets and Owners in NeeD) is not designed to provide maintenance or ongoing care for healthy animals. Instead it’s a resource to be used for medical care for animals and their owners with special needs. Recipients must be under the care of a University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine clinician. Requests for funding will be reviewed by the attending veterinarian and a RESPOND panel of volunteers and professionals.

Generally, recipients are able to meet the day-to-day costs associated with veterinary medical care, but are unable to assume the financial costs associated with extraordinary circumstances such as cancers, hip dysplasia, recurring infections, etc. When no money for veterinary care is available, these animals are at risk of being euthanized.

Because the School of Veterinary Medicine believes strongly in the human/animal bond and the benefits that pets bring to the sick, elderly, and disabled, we are committed to securing funding to help provide these animals with needed medical care.
