Grant $$$ For Pet’s Surgery: Don’t Give Up

by Mary Haight on January 5, 2009

 

If you know where to look, there is free* money for your pets surgery!  Each of the organizations below has their own standards for granting funds.  Copy this and put it in your dog’s or cat’s file.  You will also find information on  non-surgical options if appropriate to your case.  Check your pet insurance policy if you have one–there are needs not covered.

In my other life as a board member at Lake Shore Animal Shelter, I’ve come across many surrendered dogs needing expensive surgery.  Last year, dogs came in with all manner of woes, many of which could have been avoided if treated early.  People simply could not afford to take their dog or  cat to a vet for regular check-ups.  Please pass this on to your friends–every little bit of information helps stem the tide of pets in need of re-homing.

1. Care Credit

2. Good Sam Fund

3. IMOM

4. Labrador Lifeline,

5. The Pet Fund (financial assistance page)

6. UN Animal Nations

7. For Paws Hospice

Check with all these places, and know that new organizations do spring up every now and then with grant $$$ for pets surgery, so don’t give up!

Update: Funds for Vet care Please see new post with updated information and new resources: http://www.dancingdogblog.com/2013/04/pet-health-care-what-to-do-when-you-cant-afford-vet-care/

ALSO – ALL comments asking for money need to be connected to a legitimate fundraising site or a Veterinarian’s animal hospital where funds will be collected to care for the animal in need. Caution against fraud: Never send money to an individual.

We need help getting our sweet baby boy, Fletcher, a beagle/basset mix, spinal surgery. Two days ago he was fine, then one misstep and he can't walk on his front legs anymore. He tries, bless his heart, but just does a face plant. He can't use the bathroom, can't stand up to eat or drink on his own and just lays around. Please direct me to someplace that I can get the help to get him the care he needs. It will cost around $6,000 to get him back to where he's supposed to be. We are both full time students and work part time. Our credit is terrible, but our love for our dog is great! Thank you.

Hi, I am trying to get my rescued cat surgery done on her spine so she can live a normal life. Can anyone point me in the right direction of any funds or organizations? She is special needs since she does need special care right now. I can pay the 164 dollars to get her looked at but the surgery will most likely be thousands of dollars and I am a college student with a part time job so I can't afford it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

This correspondence is on the behalf of a woman I know,  she’s a senior citizen and she has a little dog name Annie who is almost blind due to cataract. She was told by her Veterinary that the surgery would cost 3-7, thousand dollar which she can’t afford.  I know she will be very grateful for any assistant/information.

Thank you,

Gracie is a 7 year old mini dachshund who needs back surgery where estimates range from 4500 to 7000 dollars.  A neurology vet said the initial injury of two ruptured disks has grown to three and is pressing on the spine.  Gracie is in chronic pain.  She cannot do what she used to do.  Please visit http://www.gofundme.com/gixuw8 for specific details.  Thanks for your time.

Hello, I took a few kittens to foster from our local humane society. It became very clear they were sick very quickly. Two, a brother and sister buff litter mate pair. The sister was one of the first to show signs of FHV-1. After many nights of force feeding, l-lysine, antibiotics and warm black tea bag compresses, "Baily" came around, literally from the brink of death. Out of the 7 kittens her brother "Byron" seemed to be a symptomatic. Then, I went on vacation for 4 nights, returning the kittens to the HS, while I was gone. Upon returning from vacation I went to collect Baily and Byron to continue fostering them. My worst fear happened while I was gone. Byron became stressed and symptomatic. Now his eyes are so bad within a week from showing signs, that they feel he is blind and most likely would need his eyes removed. Of course I feel immeasurable amount of guilt from causing him to stress and then suffer symptoms. I asked that I could adopt both Baily and Byron, and my HS agreed. 3/7 of the kittens have passed away already from the respiratory issues associated with FHV-1, and one is still fighting for it's life. I feel it's my duty to try my hardest to save Byrons eye sight, at least in one eye, by searching for all options avaliable. Our counties HS is amazing, but like all HS its funding is limited to Grants and donations. I am even limited more than they. Finding this site is a "Hail Mary Pass" of a moment. I pray you are able to help me find a Pro Bono option to save my little Byron's sight, if that is at all possible. I have no doubt in my mind my HS would release him to a specialist who was willing to help, if I was pointed in the right direction. I'm even to the point that it doesn't matter to me if I myself ends up with Byron, as long as I can say I did everything I could to try to save his sight. I am in South Central Ohio and am willing to drive. Please, any advice would be amazing!

Hello,  I have a beautiful Egyption Mau, Osiris. He needs surgery, thyroid tumor. He has been to the Vet. Oncology in Waltham, MA.  They only gave him possibly 2 months. I can't afford the surgery, it was $1,000. for more tests and $5,000. for the surgery. Impossible for me as I am disabled. I believe that he has little time left, as he doesn't eat. I have tried everything for him, he has difficulty swallowing because the tumor is on the side of his throat.  Even giving him predsolone which I dissolved in his hydrozine sulfate is now impossible. He's only ten, I can't take much more watching him starting to fade away, He is such an amazing cat, he catches his treats like a dog, thirteen in a row and carried around a wool hat, socks and anything else of mine when I went outside to work. I will miss him terribly.    I have a hard time dealing with the fact that Vet. Oncology would not help, no money, no help. I've had cats all my life, mostly strays and would do all I can to help anyone. Thank you for reading my story.

This is Penny, my Jackawawa. She is a rescue dog that was brought to NH with her siblings. When I went to pick out the one I wanted, she picked me. I sat on the floor and she kept climbing in my lap. I picked her up on 10/26/12 (my birthday) Last year we noticed her depth perception was off. I took her to a specialist. She has progressive cataracts - she is only 2yrs old. Like most, I do not have the money to have the surgery done. I will take any and all recommendations. Does anyone know if Veterinarian Schools needed live hands on training.

Hi, I set up a fundraiser for my dog's surgery. His name is Snoopy and at this moment he can barely walk. He tries to stand but falls right back down. He has a peodtruding disc in his back which is now causing neurological effects and I'm afraid he'll end up paralyzed. My parents are planning to put him to sleep if he does not get better since we can't afford the cost of surgery. If any one can or knows someone who can help even in the smallest amount it will be greatly appreciated. This is the link to the fundraiser. Thanks

Coco Needs a New Knee
Coco Needs a New Knee

I rescued Coco in 2005, when I was going through chemo due to breast cancer. She saved my life. 4 months ago, I came home from work and Coco didn't run to greet me like she usually did...she couldn’t move. I took her to So Cal Veterinary Specialty Hospital. Found out she had a cancerous tumor the size of a tennis ball on her liver, they did surgery that night. She made a full recovery, but that surgery cost over $5,900.

Last month, I was walking Coco, when suddenly she was unable to walk on her left hind leg. Back to the Vet...found out she had a partially torn cranial cruciate ligament. She'd need to have TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) surgery. The Vet said the mass under her left axillae/armpit, also needed to be removed, by doing so; she'd be able to pull herself up after the TPLO surgery.

Anyone that knows me knows I don’t ask anyone for anything. I don’t have a choice as the estimate for Coco's surgery is $4,800. I don’t have the money for surgery because of her last surgery. She's such a sweetie. I must do everything I can to help her, including humbling myself and asking for any donations that you could give us. Thank you so much! Dr. Vogel at So Cal Veterinary Specialty Hospital will be doing Coco's surgery.  We are also found at:

My kitten, Jack, was born with anal atresia.  This means he does not have an anus.  Instead he has a fistula (opening) between his rectum and his urinary tract.  Bowel movements cause Jack a great deal of pain. Surgery will fix this, but it needs to be done sooner rather than later as it is very unhealthy to have fecal matter in the urinary tract.  Please share Jacks story...

If we can raise Jacks funds the surgery will be done at Veterinary Specialty Center of Delaware. 302-322-6933. http://www.vscdel.com.

I live in Springfield Mo. My 6 lb Yorkie Lizzie is almost 9 years old now and she has slept by my side for nearly all but 4 days of her life. We are so close. I'm feeling her pain constantly as I know she is suffering. She is having tooth problems. It's so bad that its coming out of her cheek. I took her to my small country town vet but she didn't have a x-ray machine so she couldn't fix it. All she could do for her is antibiotics and pain pills. Those are about gone now. I need to get Lizzie to a vet that has the proper experiment and get her out of this pain & misery asap. But I don't even have a income at all. I was lucky enough to have a good friend pay for Lizzy's last vet visit. When I first got my best friend, Lizzie I had a good income to provide for her. I hope I can find her the help she desperately needs soon. Thanks for reading.


<3 Good luck to you all too <3


Most likely she needs an x-ray and a tooth extraction. I'm waiting on a local clinic to call me back with an estimate for that now. 

The clinic is: Parkcrest Veterinary Hospital  417-881-5327

From 8/21 on, if you are asking for money to help an animal, you will have to solicit via the Veterinarian's office who will be doing the surgery or I will have to delete your comment. This means you must provide the name of the vet, the clinic, the town and state and phone number to the clinic so people can check it against internet information before contributing should they decide to do so. If you are a rescue, you should also leave a link to your website and facebook pages so others can get to know you.

If you are connected to a legitimate fundraising site like Go Fund Me, that is also acceptable.

Thanks for your cooperation!

My eight year old sweet boy has multiple bites and very scared and is being heavy sedated due to his injuries!!!!

Hello. My name is Alexandra Carr. I just found out today my 5 year old black cat Emily was shot with a BB gun. I thought her leg was hurt from the wound however the BB broke her leg and dislocated her hip. The vet wants to amputate her leg or pay more and put rods in her leg. I cannot afford either procedure and I don't want to have it amputated unless its a last resort. She's in a lot of pain and needs help. Please someone help. If anyone knows of an organization please email me at Alex_Carr_19942006@yahoo.com.

Help us to help Dante.

Dante is a grey and black Siberian husky. He was born on February 28th 2014.

But unfortunately he was born with a problem in his hips. Which is called In dogs, hip dysplasia, this is an abnormal formation of the hip socket that, in its more severe form, can eventually cause crippling lameness and painful arthritis of the joints. It is a genetic (polygenic) trait that is affected by environmental factors. It can be found in many animals and in humans, but is most commonly associated with dogs, and is common in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds.

We are in love of our pet but we have not money to face this. He needs some therapies and probably a future surgery. And we have two options one pay for all his treatment or put him to sleep. That's why we are asking you to help Dante. He deserves a better life.

So if you know any association or foundation that can help to pay his treatment please let us know;you can write your comments at the end of this Video clip Or send us any information at this e-mail inirida40@gmail.com. Thank you for your cooperation.

Lily My Schnauzer
Lily My Schnauzer

Lily - My Schnauzer 


My 3 years old female Schnauzer is developing cataracts in both eyes. According to the Veterinary Ophthalmologist, her candidacy for repairing her sight through surgery is narrowing due to the aggressive progression and inflammation caused by the optical lenses cloudiness. Therefore a window for a safe recovery chance is very narrow and requires a prompt intervention. Right now her visibility is very limited, she’s young and very active and her struggles are difficult for me to stand and wait for her to be completely blind; relocate her and/or euthanasia is out of the equation. This breed requires a lot of attention and can’t imagine taking care of a blind Schnauzer.  


The cost is quite expensive ($3,200.00) and too much for my budget. Post operative follow up visits for over the periods of six months is in the range of $400 – $600. 


I’m anxiously looking for a source financial help in order to alleviate such a burden. I’m a retired US Army Veteran and with my monthly pension could not afford such an amount. There is not a payment plan in the Vet’s office and I’m willing to repay in installments.


Lily is currently under medication to slow down the cataract progression and discomfort. 


Please advice.

My name is Mike. We have a 4 year old Shiba Inu that some how tore his ACL. The swelling is so bad we can't determine if it's a complete tear. We need to get him fitted with, and purchase, a brace. We're in our 50's  on a fixed income and don't have the funds. Nor will we ever.

Also' if he does need surgery' he'll only suffer the more because we can't afford that. I'm already in it for $500.00 and getting deeper. These costs are coming from our heating and hot water, as well as our groccery money. We can't keep this up very much longer with two kids to feed.

 We love this dog so much!  Rudy is the best dog we've ever owned. He's well behaved. Doesn't dart off and keeps me in shape cause he loved his walks so much. I haven't met many others like him, and he's large for his breed. Loves,loves,loves stuffed toys. Greets you at the door with something in his mouth every time. Coohing like an owl or something.

  He's learned his obedienced behavior from a Lab. we once owned. He never leaves the yard.

  I'm not good with computers. I wanted to give you pictures of him. White and brown color pattern that makes him stand out above the rest. I'm not kidding. A true show stopper.

  I'm better with a phone and text. If you'de like to see him call 215-791-0950

    We need help. How do I raise money or find help with treatment or a brace to help him? ? Please contact me at mmm245@comcast.net or call ?    5/31/14. Thanks for listening.

Hello.  My loving pet is in need of surgery to remove a cancerous tumor growth which we are concerned may become snagged on a branch or other object.  I am on limited income at this time as a senior on full disability; and have vision issues. I've had problems establishing my own health coverage in recent years.   Previously, I had the income to pay for pet-care.    My pet is a great companion for me, and is very people friendly.  She is otherwise very mobile and seemingly in good health, though the cancerous tumor now presents a difficult potential life-threatening problem.  


I am seeking a benefactor, or perhaps a person who can afford to pay partial surgery fee for my wonderful devoted pet.  I can likely afford to make some limited monthly payments.  


I am now trying to locate a vet who offers discounts for surgical fees.  If you may know of one near La Habra hills or San Gabriel Valley, please provide their name, and  email address, and/or their website address.  


Thank you for reading my posting.

My name is Lauren and I have a dog emergency. My dog Lacie is a long haired chihuahua, 3 years old, I was wondering if u could help. If I don't get an MRI for her I don't know if I can keep my Chihuahua. She has spine problem -infection or disc problem. Without MRI we don't know exactly but she's on medication. If pills don't work I don't know if she will live or if I have to give her away or give to shelter and they would put her down. An Mri is around $2000 or more...I don't have pet insurance and we can't afford it. I went to Neuro specialist and she said its a problem in the neck and its either infection or disc problem or auto immune. But she needs an MRI to find out what for sure. Can u help me? I love my dog and want to keep her, she is family to me and my life. I have been trying for a week now getting her care and seeing if anyone can help. It started last Friday (11/1) and I took her to vet Saturday and they didn't know what was wrong. Monday I did blood work and they didn't find anything. Wednesday I got in to see the DR at the ER but Thursday they said Lacie's best bet would be to see the Dr at the WVRC, for neuro testing. So after exam they prescribed antibiotics and pain meds, but she really needs the MRI and possibly surgery. I don't want to lose her, I love her with all my heart. My husband and I have a 7 month old baby and another chihuahua that is Lacie's best friend. Thank you for reading my message I am desperate to help my dog and save her. Can you help me ? Lauren

We have a puppy but she just keeps getting sick. We love this little dog and have spent several hundred dollars on vet care in just two months. She gets better after treatment but then turns for the worse. She may have a problem with her trachea/esophagus as she's a mixed chihuahua breed. We want to keep her but while grandpa says he will pay out what needs to be paid for her care, we are stretched to the limit. Can someone please help? We tried for the Carecredit but didn't qualify. Grandpa got Oreo for the grand daughter against my advice but now that she is part of our family I just want to keep her healthy for our grand daughter and truth be told, she adds joy to our lives also..

I see so many heart wrenching stories and I feel for every one. We rescued a German Shepard mix when my son was born so we could have a great protector as part of our family. Unknown to us that she would have a number of health issues. We have spent a lot of money on x rays and dr appts and hip surgery already for her. My husband and I have decent jobs at the moment but for quite a while we didn't. We spend every paycheck just trying to catch up with the credit card bills we are swimming in. But when Zena needed her hip surgery we did what we could to help her. Now she is in need of TPLO surgery on her opposite knee, which unfortunately she also has a knee cap that pops out of place and the knee is full of arthritis. If I had the means left on my credit cards to put her surgery I would no questions asked, but we have gotten in about $40,000 in credit card debt. I don't have the room to add another $4000. If someone could please help me in finding a way to get Zena the surgery she needs, not only her, but our whole family would be so grateful. She is a wonderful dog and so young to have so many issues, her 5th birthday is next month. We love her very much and want her to be past all of this pain. Please send any information you may have to ms22835@gmail.com. Thank you

Also one side of her hip is out already that will be the side they do first. We have been trying to keep her calm so the other side doesn't out too. If both go out then she will be unable to walk. Thanks in advance for any help

As a follow up, Jack had surgery (I took a loan from a relative, which I hated to do, but it was for Jack).  I turns out Jack was a girl.  Sadly she had complications from her surgery and did not survive.  Her surgery was Wednesday, she came home Thursday evening and was right back at the surgery center on Friday where they found that her internal sutures did not hold. My husband, brother, mother, and I went immediately back to the surgical center and got to spend a few minutes with her.  I held her while the vet sedated her and gave her the shot. 


Jack was 9 weeks old, and that was the most heartbreaking experience of my life.  In the weeks that she was a part of my life she was so lively and sweet that it never occurred to me that she would not survive if we just got her the surgery.  My only thought was that I would fail her by not raising the funds.  Jack taught me a lot about life and love in the short time she was with me and I will be forever grateful to have had her in my life.


Best of luck to you all.
