Welcome to The Pet Fund website
The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c) 3 nonprofit
association that provides financial assistance to owners of domestic
animals who need veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because
their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or medical treatment.
Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an
animal down or neglect medical needs because of the costs involved.
Thousands of animals are sent to shelters and euthanized each year,
many because of treatable medical conditions. While costs are an
inevitable part of the responsibility of owning companion animals, The Pet
Fund assists owners in covering medical costs beyond the normal expenses
of vaccination, spay & neuter surgeries, food and routine veterinary care.
Adopting a companion animal always involves both expense and commitment,
and if owners have a resource to help with medical
services, their animals can receive necessary care
despite the financial burdens involved.
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. Perhaps most importantly, we provide information to owners about
preventative care and financial services which will ensure that pet owners are able
to develop financial resources on their own and avoid future medical crises
through care and planning.
