Are You Having Trouble Affording Your Pet?

Check our list of national and state resources for pet owners in need

  • The whole family suffers when money problems make it hard, or impossible, to care for a pet. But help is out there. HSVMA

Below is a comprehensive list of pet financial aid-related organizations.

Some are listed nationwide, and some are listed alphabetically by state.

NOTICE: If your animal requires emergency veterinary care and you cannot afford treatment, click here to contact groups or veterinary schools that may help. If you are unsure what qualifies as emergency veterinary care, call your veterinarian and describe the symptoms.

 

If your organization is offering assistance (such as pet food, discounted veterinary services including spay/neuter, temporary foster care, etc.) to individuals facing financial difficulties due to the current economic situation, please let us know about your programs by emailing us at petfriendly@humanesociety.org.
