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!

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.

I just found out that my Boston Terrier, Austin, has a cancerous tumor that needs to be removed. If you donate any amount it will be greatly appreciated. I have his surgery scheduled for 12-10-13 at Carroll County Veterinary Clinic. I will provide vet records upon request. He is the dog in my profile pic and has a facebook page. Thank youhttp://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/austin-s-tumor-fund/112079

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

Belle is a 4 year old playful wonderful mix of Bichon & Shih Tzu.  We rescued her about a year ago from neglect, no obvious signs of abuse.  She was crated for at least 14 hours a day.  She has had a right cataract for quite a while & adapted to it, but now has a very rapidly developing left one & it is changing her personality from playful & adventurous to scared, timid & reclusive.  Surgery is estimated at $3300 plus exams, meds, testing before & after, etc.  How can we get help paying for this?  We barely make it on social security.  We and Belle are mutually devoted to each other & it hurts so much to see her so scared.

Our little Dachshund was injured in a very bizarre accident. My daughter's teenage friend was sleep walking and stepped on him. This was several months ago and since then he has been seen 3 times at different places. We tried steroids and inflammation meds 3 times with kenneling to no avail. We even tried a dog chiropractor just because we couldn't afford the surgery of $4500. We took him for X-rays today, as I needed some actual proof of what we were dealing with so that we could make our next decision. It was confirmed he has ruptured disc and the fragments are pressing on his Spinal Nerves causing him on again off again paralysis. We were told today that surgery is our only option at this point. They did find another place that would do it for $3100 to$3700 but as many other people we are getting by and the surgery is expensive. He basically needed this surgery a few months ago and the longer we wait the less chance he has of recovering. How are we suppose to tell our 16 year old daughter who is studying to be a Vet that we might have to put her dog down. She and this dog have been inseparable since her 9th birthday. He is a part of  our family. Why does it have to be so expensive and does anybody know where we can turn for help?

I have a shiba inu that has developed an extremely severe and rare case of colon polyps.  I have spent thousands on him the past year trying different things that may help him.  Our last resort is a surgery called a rectal pull through.  Unfortunately it is really expensive and I don't have the means to pay for it.  I am wondering if anyone knows ways to get assistance paying for pet medical costs.  My vet told me there are people who are willing to help with things like this but I don't know how to find them.  Please if anyone knows who to contact for help let me know.  My email is kristinmannone@hotmail.com.

My name is Genna. I am seven years old and am still full of life and spirit. But I injured myself really badly. Just promise you're not going to get mad.... I was out on my walk (it's my favorite thing to do) when I saw something - another dog! I got so excited, I jumped up to shout, "Hey you, over there, come on, come on, let's go play!" When I landed on the ground, I felt something tear in my knee. I forgot I was supposed to take it easy on my sore leg. I couldn't walk (what have I done!?) I looked up at my mom, waiting for her to bend down with her gentle kiss and make it all better. But it didn't work this time. I tried as much as I could to hop along on the way back.

When we finally reached our block my mom tied me up to a tree and ran as fast as she could. She went and got the car. She rushed over to me and picked me up. We headed straight to the vet. I didn't even have to wait. I got to go in right away. Dr. Updegrove, at the Pets Referral Center, looked me over real good. She asked my mom for a picture of me (WOW! Who would have thought!) When my mom agreed I went into the back and got a shot. They gave me medicine so it wouldn't hurt so much and calmed me down. They brought the camera over and I began my pose. After a minute I got tired of fame, and had enough of that, it was time to go. I went back to mom and waited for my pictures.

Dr. Updegrove said they were excellent (of course they were!) - no signs of bone tumors. She explained how I had torn the ligament in my knee and she believes the knee cap as well. I am going to have to have surgery. I wouldn't ever get better on my own, not this time. With a tear in her eye my mom said thank you and took me home. She put me in bed and held me tight. Turns out the medicine they gave me for pain didn't get along with me very well. I cried for hours, all through the night, until the next afternoon, scared as could be hoping it would be all over soon. Mom cried almost as much as me. I didn't understand why at first, but now I know.

The surgery I need costs a lot of money and she already spent everything she had on that picture of me. I'm sorry mom, I didn't mean to make you so sad. So I thought really hard of what I could do. That's when I thought of you. If I could get a donation of just a dollar or two, and then perhaps from your friend, another dollar or two, I could put all my dollars together and give them to mom. Then I could get my surgery done. And then, while out on my walk, I could see across the street that same dog. But this time I'm going to shout "Hey you, my friend, Can you come over and play? But please be gentle with me. I just got done with surgery. But I would sure like to play"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Genna was seen at the Pets Referral Center in Berkeley on March 28th at 7:45pm. Client ID : 43000 Genna needs surgery to correct her torn ligament. Some of the surgical options include TPLO, TTA, and lateral suture and extracapsular repair.

I am Darlene Pereira. I am her mom. I am on a fixed income and have spent all I had on the x-ray Dr. Updegrove did of her leg. I love her dearly with all my heart but will not continue to allow her to suffer day after day with no hope of an end to her pain. Anyone who makes a donation, if requested, can be sent verification of her medical treatment.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO FINDS ROOM IN THEIR HEART TO HELP SAVE GENNA'S LIFE. She is scheduled to have surgery April 17th at All Creatures Animal Hospital in Eagle Point, Oregon.   Their phone number is 541-830-5613. It is going to be a six hour drive for us to reach the hospital.  They said that she may need to stay overnight after surgery.

Mariah needs help. I rescued my labrador from a breeder that was not caring for her. When I found mariah she weighed 45 lbs (normally should weigh 70). She was peeing blood and vomiting and urinating all day. I was able to get her into the vet with a dx of diabetes and its been a long road ever since. Mariah is doing great and is a loving dog and loves her new life. She has since developed cataracts and has gone mostly blind. Her most recent diagnosis is glaucoma which is where i need the help. The vet said if i can have the cataracts out her vision would most likely return and the glaucoma would be cured. I cant afford the 3000 per eye surger. If anyone knows how i can get some financial help can you let me know.

 

Thank you

I need help getting my English Setter, Silky to a vet in Mexico just south of Yuma, AZ.  I was fortunate enough to have met him and have him do surgery on her and he saved her life and his fees were affordable for me. She had some tumors on her mammary glands and one was half the size of a grapefruit.  He also spayed her.  She has been her wonderful "puppy doodle" self for this last year, but is now starting to show 2 more tumors arising on 2 nipples.

I'm an out of work construction manager living on the streets in my small old RV  in central coastal California.  I've managed to hang on here through watching my pennies closely and I'm scheduled to start getting my Social Security payments starting in April.

I have an e-mail out to Dr. Moreno and hope to hear back from him as early as tomorrow.  My problem, like everyone else's problem nowadays is money.

I've been a good planner and have almost won the race to survive until April 10th, which I had planned for March 9th 30 days after my 62 birthday, however at this stage I am down to no 20's in my wallet.

I'm trying to find someone who will help me get her there and pay the vet his fee, check my references and help me help my dog. The quicker I can get her there the less impact the surgery will have. It's about a day's drive thereand I stay in the desert where it's free close to the border.

I even park in a parking lot overnight at the town just north of the border, a mile from his office.

If you are inclined to share this with others, my e-mail is garcam123@gmail.com.

I've never had to ask, I need help asking strangers to help me.

Thank you.

Hi my name is Sarah, I currently purchased an amazing english bulldog. I had always wanted this type of dog but never thought they would be so expensive! My baby is turning seven months and already needs two surgeries! One surgery is for his cherry eye which would cost $600 and the other is for his knee (dislocated) and that would be $1600. My vet said the cherry eye can wait but not his knee. He's limping real bad and seems to be miserable and it kills me to see him like this because he is usually a very happy dog. I've tried searching my options but not getting very lucky. I would give him away to a family that will actually love him and can afford him. Or if anyone can lead me to possibilities on how to get some money together that would be great! anything helps. Thanks & GB!! email me: ortega_sarahy@yahoo.com

"My son Kael's Christmas Present." One year ago, right before Christmas, I was sitting down thinking about what to give my youngest son Kael, for his first Christmas present. I couldn't think of anything right off hand so I got a bit frustrated and then it hit me. I recalled giving my oldest son a puppy for his first Christmas. After seeing my oldest son bond with his dog I wanted my youngest son to experience this as well.So for his first Christmas present, he received a Siberian Husky pup.

Long story short, one year later his Siberian Husky "Kinko" was a handful. On top of that he was developing an issue with his eyes that at first didn't seem to cause him any pain but as time passed this changed and it became clear how much pain he was now in. I did a lot of research and found information that troubled me enough to take him to see his regular veterinarian and eventually to a specialist. At these veterinarian visits I learned that Kinko had developed "Hereditary Cataracts" and without Surgery he will go blind.

I had a fundraiser on this website previously for Kinko but it recently expired so I created this account to keep raising money. So far I've been lucky enough to have raised over $1500.00 in 30 days. The surgery costs roughly around $4500.00 so now I am trying to raise the remaining $3000.00 to save Kinko's vision. Please help us raise the money to get Kinko the surgery he deserves so he can live a full and joyous life. His cataracts are currently at the mature stage and we don't have much time left before surgery may no longer be an option for Kinko.

Need help with Honey my Golden Doodle. Honey was a Rescue from Almost Heaven Kennels which was shut down in 2009 (Almost Hell disgusting place, back yard breeder). We helped to shut them down when dog wardens couldn't get a dog out, I rescued Honey and went to court to help save all the dog's at this kennel. Honey was suppose to be 6 months old when I got her, and don't really know her age for sure, (if I was told the truth about her age)! When I got Honey she had sarscoptic mange, ear mites, fleas, just about all types of bugs a dog could contract, my vet put her on double dose's of Resolution for three month's and recommended not spaying her right away and waiting these problems passed. In the mean time my son moved back home due to loosing his job, and no unemployment. He also had an American Bulldog Magnum who came down with lymes disease and was misdiagnosed. Because he was misdiagnosed it went into this joint's and caused an auto immune disease. For the last 2 1/2 years I have spent over 2,800.00 on Magnum's health care. I live on a very fixed income of $966.00 a month and my rent is $700.00, with no help financially from anyone! Magnum developed a spleen tumor and we did not have another 2,500.00 to 3,500.00 to put out for surgery son on 10/11/12, we had to have Magnum put to sleep. I know deep in my heart I did the right thing, and did everything I could to help him over the years. Due to trying to help my son and Magnum I was unable to help Honey to be spayed. Every time I would get enough saved up to have her done, Magnum would  be sick and need. I'm not trying to make excuse's because this is what really happened. I have been in contact with other organization's to try and get her spayed for free and NONE of them helped. NOT A ONE! I contacted Peaceable Kingdom and they refused to help, they are a 501 (c) and wanted $500.00 up front to spay her, or I should surrender her. This world already has to many dogs up for adoption that they can't find home's for and 10,000 dogs a day are destroyed across the U.S. because of no homes and people surrending them. This is not an option and poor excuse for a place who is suppose to help.   Honey is in emergency surgery because of Pyometra. I need help with funding for this surgery. Who can help me please...please contact me at palawlady1058@yahoo.com. Thank you for help and consideration.....Honey's Mom...Denise

Hi. My name is David Pham. My parents adopted a Long-haired Chihuahua about a year ago. When they brought him home, my siblings and I instantly fell in love with him. We named him Keeno. He is the life of my family. He is playful, active, and just plain loveable. He makes every day into a virtuous day. He makes us smile and we cherish him. It was a couple days ago when we notice Keeno have been inactive. He wouldn't run nor would he jump as he used to. My parents bought him to the hospital and unfortunately, the vet told us Keeno needs surgery for his bottom. The surgery cost around 1,400$ and because we are low incomed, the hospital deducted 700$. We only need 700$ in order to pay for the surgery. But my family and I do not have that much money. We literally live day by day on my father’s paycheck. Please would someone please help my family and I in our attempt to save our precious dog? This would literally be the best day ever if someone would help. Thank you, David

Hi, I am in a sad situation, My mom adopted a 6wk old african tortise who is now 9 years old, She treats him like a human lol... He roams around the backyard with the dogs, uses the doggie door and has his own house mini look to my moms house lol. He recently has developed a huge growth under his neck we are unsure what it is, The vet says may be a cyst or mass but he will not know until surgery.My dad has lost his job and my mom does not make aenough income to pay, she says if the mass gets any bigger he will not be able to breath. He can not even tuck his head in his shell because the mass is to large :( We do not want him to die, he is such a cool turtle.. My mom is so stressed on this and I need help to help her... Thank you

I am 61 years old and all alone in life, except for my dog. He is in good health, but has a tumor on his paw which I can't afford . It bleeds if touched . The dr. said an operation could cure this. He is a beagle and my best friend. I would not want to live without him. I live in a bad condition trailer, but am happy to be with my baby. Thank you.

I rescued an Afghan hound at the age of two, her handler didn't want her due to her head was too big. It took at least a year for her to come to us. She was very scared and timid. She loved to be groomed and walked. I am thinking due to being crated all the time except for exercise and grooming for show. She was very afraid to be touched, we got her 5/07 and to this day she will run into the laundry room and pick her head in the corner shaking if any one but my husband and I are in the house. I found out her vocal cords were cut due to having many dogs. She got dry eye in sept.2011 and has been treated since then with all of the known medications. WE TO NOT HAVE THE MONEY FOR THE parotid duct transpositron NEEDED its seems like she is needing more than two flushings a day. My heart feels for her pain. I can not think of putting her to sleep due to her plain and eyes getting worse due to needing the money. Can any one volunteer to do the operation or donate money for Fannie ???? She has learned to trust and love us,she loves to run, (like a horse galloping) her eyes are her reason for living. Donna and Fannie Austin, Texas

We just found out our little guy Oscar, a chiweenie, has a slipped disk in his spine. His back legs have started going numb over the past two days and he can't walk. He has stopped eating and is in a tremendous amount of pain. He is 6 years old so he is still a young guy but he has been having problems with his leg for a while, limping and laying down alot. When we first got him, we rescued him from an abusive family who left him in the backyard to fend for himself from 2 rottweilers. He was very happy to find our home and has been a great friend since. He never does anything bad, always goes potty outside and will wait for you to get up to let you know. He loves playing fetch with his toys (a purple heart chew toy being his favorite) and sometimes thinks he is a human like the rest of us. He has always been cordial with all other dogs no matter their size and loves the attention. Im here to ask if there is any way we can get help with his surgery because the vet said if he doesn't have surgery he will have to be put down. It is a sad day and if we have to put him down, a big part of our family will go with him. Thank you for posting this and god bless. (The website I have listed goes to a picture of him.)

Hi I am pretty sure you have heard this over and over but I am an animal lover, I have moved from NY to Miami with my family (wrong move). When I did this my poor dog started to get different types of allergies. I been to various vets, spent over $1000 of dollars on her, she kept getting bad, looked as if she had mange. She had to get shots every week ( I even had to pay for them to give her the shots) My needles, my vaccine. She also started to contract mites in her ears every other month. Cost me more money for flushing her ears, medicines and shots. The bottom line is, the vet told me the thing to do is give her shots to control the itching (steroids), and not knowing that it causes cataracts. Now she has gotton glycoma in one of her eye. They told me the surgery would cost $1500 for each eye and God knows how much for the glycoma. This is money I do not have, I really do not want to put my dog down, she is family and I love her to death, but I have been going through so much financial problems right now and do not know where to turn to get this kind of money. If someone has any suggestions please, if possible tell me, I would be so greatful. I thank you so much .

I have an 18 month old newfoundland puppy that has been diagnosed with critical hip dysplasia. I took him to NC State for evaluation-and it was bilateral hip replacement. The cost is 10K. The breeder showed NO interest in the dog as his 1 yr "guarantee", had expired. Does anyone have any advice. My dog is growing weaker and I am trying to raise funds, cut back his activity and have him lose a few pounds. Many thanks.......................he is a wonderful gentle giant. Any advice would be appreciated.

A school Therapy dog is in need of surgery. I am a preschool teacher in illinois and have a three year old chessie who tore his acl while jumping. It will cost about 3500 dollars to have surgery. My husband and I both have goood jobs but have been recovering from a finnancil hardship after him being off work for several months and at the same time owning his own business. The giving up business and getting a job that barely paid his bills. With a few more complications we have come accross. We are finnally getting back on our feet and now this happened to our Therapy dog. I have applied to credit care before when my last therapy dog of 7 years came down with cancer. I had to settle that through a debt relief program that I am still paying on. So am not elgible for that. My boy is a very loving dog and is in contact with 100 preschoolers a day who are considered at-risk. Does anyone know of funding that is available to help with the cost of the surgery.
