Vets Helping Pets

Financial assistance grants for low-income families.

Vets Helping Pets Fund provides financial support to supplement a veterinarian’s charitable care for animals from low-income households or for families that have an undue financial burden due to extenuating circumstances. Our goal is to keep the human-animal bond intact by resolving medical issues that will restore the animal’s health and quality of life. This program provides a one-time grant for qualifying cases that are being cared for through clinics with WSVMA members.
