A No-Kill Shelter Saving Lives Everyday

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 potential applicants 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.
You'll need 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 the online application form. If you do not have this information available, wait to fill out your online application until you have obtained this information.
CareCredit works just like a credit card but is exclusive to health care services for your pet, including everything from everyday checkups to emergency surgery. With low monthly payments and a fixed interest rate, CareCredit allows you to give your pet the treatment they need when they need it and pay for it on a monthly basis.
You can apply over the phone by calling 1 (800) 677-0718 between 5:00 am and 7:00 pm, PST. Or you can fill out an application online.
The Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Program is a Nonprofit Charity Organization that provides emergency financial assistance to cat and kitten guardians who are unable to afford veterinary services to save their companion when life-threatening illness or injury strikes.
Seniors, people with disabilities, people who have lost their job, Good Samaritans who rescue an injured or ill cat or kitten - any of these folks may need emergency financial assistance.
They also have a specialized dedicated fund (Kobi's Fund) for cats with Vaccine Associated Sarcoma (VAS) (also known as Injection Site Sarcoma). VAS is a group of cancers caused by vaccinations.
The PBRC website is a virtual shelter and resource for owners and caretakers of American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and Pit Bull mixes.
Pit Bull Rescue Central is an internet-based organization. You must have access to a computer and e-mail, or we won’t be able to help.
You must be able to check your e-mail on a daily basis for this service to be efficient. Allow a few days for your request to be processed. A member of the fund committee will contact you as soon as possible. All correspondence should be sent to [email protected].
