Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Veterinary Services

Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs because of the costs involved. The 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.

Results: The Pet Fund has helped thousands of pet owners find access to veterinary care funding to treat companion animals in need of medical care.

Target demographics: pet owners

Direct beneficiaries per year: pet owners fund need medical care for their companion animals.

Geographic areas served: the United States

Programs: financial assistance for needed veterinary care.

Pilot was diagnosed with Evans syndrome, an autoimmune disease, over four months ago. The ongoing treatment, including a severe crisis that required 40 straight hours of veterinary care, drained me dry. She bounced back and is doing well. She's not at 100% where she was before this slammed into her, but she's eating, going for walks, cuddling, asking for belly rubs, and enjoying life again. Her prognosis is good so long as she remains on the treatment regimen (which one of the medications is *very* expensive), but I had simply run out of funds, including maxing out my credit. The Pet Fund came though for us and helped us to continue her treatment and her good health. Pilot and I can't thank them enough.

My beautiful cat Joy was diagnosed with nasal lymphoma on July 8, 2018. The chemotherapy treatment was $12,000. The Pet Fund offered a grant in October to help pay for the treatment. Unfortunately Joy passed away on Sunday, October 28, 2018 before finishing her treatment. Thank you Pet Fund.

Just over 2 years ago The Pet Fund was so helpful when my dog was diagnosed with Melanoma cancer and needed surgery plus on going treatments. I'm happy to say that was just over 2 years ago and she is still with me. She has enjoyed years of life she would certainly not have had if i wasn't able to get help with the expense of it all. Thank you so much to the people who run this nonprofit organization. I know you have helped so many. I'm thankful to have been one of the many recipients who were able to keep their pet alive because of the funds you granted to her Vet.

My cat has lymphoma, but she really needs to continue her chemo to stay in remission. The Pet Fund made a grant to my vet so we can keep her at home and keep the treatments going. Thank you so much.

After my dog got cancer, he had to have chemo and the cost was more than I could afford. The Pet Fund helped me with a grant and my dog is still taking chemo but is in remission now. Thank you for everything!

One of our family dogs has lymphoma, and our son who has special needs is very attached to the dog, who is a member of our family and not just a dog. We are getting help with chemo which is more than we can afford, and we want to thank you for all your help.
