Help, My Pet is Sick,  and I have No Money!!

 The worst feeling is when you love your pet more than words can say and they become ill.  To make matters worse, there is medical help but it will cost more than you can afford.  I have been in the situation more than once but luckily, I did have resources and credit cards to take care of the high cost of helping my pets.  My heart goes out to those that are less fortunate than I.  The guilt of not being able to take care of one’s pet is a horrible experience.  I hope that anyone reading this has never been in that situation.  I wrote this to help if you are or if you know someone who is in need of help.

Heartbreaking Situation – a pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is homeless, a veteran, elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much. Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship or trauma in their life, making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by kind hearted people, 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.

Here is a list of organizations that are set up to help.If you know of an organization not on this list, please contact me via email at Profpetsit@aol.com 

Keep in mind, that these organizations may require certain things from you.  They may need to know why you need help, may require financial proof, etc.  Please do not take this personally, they just want to help those in need and want to be able to stretch their funds the farthest.  Each organization is independent and has their own set of rules and guidelines. Therefore you will have to investigate each one separately to determine if you qualify for assistance:

DONATIONS to any of these organizations will help them continue their great work and help many more animals.
