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.

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.

My German Shepherd puppy is in critical need of heart surgery to close an extra valve in her heart. She is too young to leave this world so soon. Even a share if you can't donate would be awesome. Please help us reach our goal, this surgery is very pricy for what we can afford at this moment.

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

                      700 W Republic Road Springfield, Mo 65807

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!

please help my italian greyhound 

Yogi my loving Italian greyhound was attacked by a dog near his home by no fault of his own!!!! At this time he is currently in the hospital needing surgery to have his jaw fixed. My eight year old sweet boy has multiple bites and very scared and is being heavy sedated due to his injuries!!!! A orthopedic doctor will be seeing him on Monday with further updates for us but his expected medical cost will be substantial. I am reaching out to friends and family and dog lovers out there for any assistance they may be able to help him with his recovery.

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

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

@Sgonzalez222 I hope you raise the funds you need.  Your puppy is very cute.  If I could I would donate right now, but I am fundraising for surgery for my kitten.  I will send all positive thoughts your way and wish you the very best of luck! If we raise Jack's funds and have anything leftover I will remember you.

@JennReeves Yes, absolutely, Jenn. We simply need to make certain that no one is mislead. When horrible things happen to precious pets, people don't know where to turn when they can't afford the cost and unfortunately there is an element that will take advantage. Please also note there is a more up to date post linked to in the article above with additional resources.

Did you look into Dog Knee Braces. There are Dog Elbow Braces, Dog Knee Braces, all safer alternatives with better success than surgery and cheaper.

Did you look into Dog knee braces?  Vets only want to sell the ACL CCL tplo or tta surgery as it is very profitable. They will not tell you the safer, cheaper alternative is a ACL CCL Dog knee brace. My dog also tore his ccl acl and vet wanted $4650++ for surgery. Searching I found dog knee braces. Its been a year now and my dog has healed without surgery wearing a posh dog knee brace. They really do work. The vet could not believe that my dog healed from a total ccl acl rupture but refuses to tell other patients that dog knee braces work because the vet receives a referral fee for referring surgery.  Get a dog knee brace first and don't put your dog thru painful joint surgery that is unnecessary.
