Need Help With Vet Bills or Pet Food? There ARE Resources Available!

The following list of organizations offer resources and assistance to dog and cat owners looking for help with vet bills or pet food.

help with vet bills

Because our pets are a life-long commitment, it’s not unheard of for a dog or cat mom or dad to face financial hardship at some point in the life of their fur-children.

We can all agree that before bringing an animal into your heart and home, it’s important to be prepared for the financial responsibilities – veterinary care, quality food and treats, preventative measures, etc. – that come along with pet parenthood. However, over the course of that 15-20+ year commitment, things happen. Jobs are lost, injuries or accidents make it impossible to work, economies take a hit.

Unfortunately, in many cases of financial hardship, it’s the family pet that suffers.

Fortunately, there IS help available! Below is a list of national and state-specific organizations that assist pet parents in need of financial assistance. These organizations understand that the very best place for a pet is with the family that loves them.

Some provide help paying veterinary bills, some help with food, some offer free or low-cost spay and neuters, while others assist pets that meet specific requirements. All are valuable resources for pet parents who may be facing financial hardship but have committed to providing the very best life-long home for their pet.

Please remember, this is only a list of known available resources. Each organization has its own rules and requirements. You will need to research each organization separately to determine if you qualify for assistance.

    I’m the Board President of Animal House Project, a 501 (c) 3 Charitable Organization located in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. We have 2 divisions – one is the Chester County Pet Food Pantry which helps families facing financial crisis in Chester, eastern Berks and Montgomery counties keep their companion pets at home and out of shelters by providing donated pet food and pet care services (low cost vaccinations; spay/neuter and other services). Our second division – Rescue Pet Food Pantry operates a pet food pantry for grass root 501 (c) 3 organizations that need food to free up other financial resources to pay for the out of control vet care bills. We receive bulk donations from Manufacturers, such as Natural Balance and Wellness and make sure that we spread the food to the smaller rescues Free of Charge.

    I’m the Director of PAWS Pet Pantry, in Springfield, Missouri. We help provide food, litter, vetting, spay/neuter services, flea medication, heart worm preventative, toys, treats, beds, collars/harnesses/leashes, coats, etc., for the homeless, low-income and seniors in our community. Sadly, we do not do emergency vetting because of lack of funds. We try to focus on preventative care. Our mission is to keep the fur companion WITH their human! We are a 501c3 non-profit and are funded by donations. We have Street Outreach in downtown Springfield every Tuesday evening at 5:30pm for our homeless friends and we provide pick-up spots for pet food.

    We have taken in 2 dogs from my husband’s nephew and have not received their papers so we don’t know the exact ages of the dogs. We love them and they have become part of our family. However, we can not support taking them to the vet all the time. One is an American Bulldog and he is neutered but the medications for heart worm, fleas and ticks and any other medication, is above and beyond our financial abilities. The English Bulldog we just got from the same owner, was back in October 2015.
    He has some drainage from his eyes, that is a little green. I thought it was allergies so I bought some children’s allergy medication. That didn’t work. We are on a monthly budget due to my husband having a stroke and needing me at home so it’s hard to get our meds let alone take the dogs to the vet. Our English Bulldog is not altered and it’s a big change from Miami, FL to Mid Missouri!! If you know of any help in the central MO area, so that I can get the English, it would be appreciated!!

      I also believe the English might be going blind in one eye. I would love to get him in and his paperwork!! Is there any way to get his papers without the original owner?
      His nephew was transferred from Miami to Anchorage so, they didn’t think the trip would be good for him. They had to drive and with both of them being active military, and 4 kids, one which is handicapped, it would not have been good on any of them.
      So please, don’t judge him, he tried but my husband wanted to bring him here to help them out.
