Default List of sources for financial help for veterinary costs

Several times I've been asked for a list of organizations that can/will help with the costs of veterinary care for dogs. I've kept this list, compiled from various sources, and tried to update it as I became aware of new sources or if a link became out of date. I've relisted it here in the hope that others who might become aware of other sources can add to it. Please note that some links contain multiple other links.

The links below are listings and articles about organizations that help with medical costs for dogs. One of our members was able to receive a grant for her dog's surgery through a foundation. You need to read through and send an email to each place, describe your dog's medical issue, the kind of help you need, etc separately for each one.

American Animal Hospital Association
AAHA Importance to You and Your Pet
"The heartbreak happens all too often, a pet owner is unable to
afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the
cost of care may be too much of a stretch for their pocketbook.
Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job
layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship, making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by Good Samaritans, don't have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer. Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have been abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship."

Angels 4 Animals
Angels4Animals- Guardian Angels For Animals- Financial Assistance for Pet Care
"Angels4Animals, a non-profit organization and a program of Inner
Voice Community Services, has a mission to serve as the guardian
angel of animals whose caretakers find themselves in difficult
financial situations. At Angels4Animals we believe that animal owners should not have to say goodbye to the animals that they love. Our work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible. Our services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need."

Care Credit
Healthcare and Medical Financing for Consumers | CareCredit™
A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care.
"CareCredit, the leader in patient/client financing, has helped more than 3 million patients/clients get the treatment or procedures they needed and wanted. With a comprehensive range of plan options, for treatment or procedure fees from $1 to over $25,000, we offer a plan and a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost every budget."

Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance (FVEAP)
http://www.fveap.org/sys-tmpl/door/
"The NEED & The HELP: Seniors, People with disabilities, People who have lost their job, Good Samaritans who rescue a cat or kitten - any of these folks may need financial assistance to save a beloved companion."

The Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Program is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that provides financial assistance to cat and kitten guardians who are unable to afford veterinary services to save their companions when life-threatening illness or injury strikes.

Help-A-Pet
http://www.help-a-pet.org/home.html
"Our efforts focus on serving the elderly, the disabled, and the
working poor. For lonely seniors, physically/mentally challenged
individuals and children of working parents, pets represent much more than a diversion."



The Pet Fund
The Pet Fund | Veterinary Care Funding
"The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that
provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer
needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs because of the costs involved. The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost."



UK Assistance with Veterinary Bills
http://www.petloversonline.co.uk/financial.ht m
"Most of us can cope with the financial commitment involved in the
day to day care of our pets. However, how many of us come out in a cold sweat when our pet is ill or injured and we know we have to take it to the vet? Most of us are fortunate enough to be able to afford it but, some of us who love our animals dearly cannot. Unfortunately we do not have a PDSA or a RSPCA Centre within our area, but there are a few charities who may be able to help."

That's a great idea, I have no idea if there are organisations over here like that.

This lady who lives local to me is looking for help with having her new rescue pup treated. https://www.facebook.com/#!/BNFFund She has found a vet (though not local ) who will do the operation for a little as possible, it's still going to cost 4000.

Thank you, JGLI. This is good information I hope I never need but I'm not well to do and even Sadie's little claw removal cost 200 bucks and that took a bite out of our budget.

Yes, several of them are available in Canada. You do have to contact each agency separately and some will offer partial payment which can be added together.

Believe me I know how expensive medical care can be for our dogs. What I would ask, is that if you come across additional sources, please either add them or send me the link and I will edit them into the list above.
