Pet Emergency Funding Resources
When your pet is diagnosed with an illness, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the costs of hospital visits, surgeries, treatments, and medicines. While these furry members of the family can't ask for help themselves, setting up a GiveForward page on their behalf provides an easy way for friends and family to contribute and help ease the financial burden.
All applications are required to contact The Pet Fund by phone BEFORE applying for funding. Call: 916-443-6007.
Applications for veterinary care funding can ONLY be done online from a computer with a printer. The ONLY exception to this rule will be for persons with severe disabilities who are either homebound or who cannot leave their home without assistance.
Applicant needs to provide Proof of Income, Copy of a written cost estimate for the needed procedures and/or treatment from your veterinarian, and the name, address, and medical license number for your treating veterinarian. This will be included on your online application form. If you do not have this information available, wait to fill out your online application until you have obtained this information.
The animal must have a life threatening emergency condition that requires urgent and specific treatment.
Be spayed or neutered (recently rescued animals are exceptions but the grant may only be issued pending spay/neuter.)
The veterinary clinic must be aware of the client’s financial need.
Provide RedRover with a written estimate prior to treatment at RedRover’s request.
Accept a check from RedRover, or UAN.
For complete eligibility information, please refer to the website.
