PETS ARE FAMILY: COMMUNITY CARE FUND

Financial assistance for pets and their owners to afford veterinary care.

Families who qualify are able to access routine veterinary care as well as emergency care for pets in need. One of the reasons pets are surrendered to the shelter is because their family is unable to afford the financial burden of vital veterinary care. The Community Care Fund keeps pets healthy and in their home.
