AAHA Helping Pets Fund
This American Animal Hospital Association fund helps those in need access
quality veterinary care for sick or injured pets.
Program Guardian Angel is the
major program of Angels4Animals. First they establish regional
links with veterinary clinics across the United States. Veterinary clinics and
private pet owners then let them know when there is an animal facing being
euthanized or surrendered because of financial limitations. This is where
Program Guardian Angel comes in. Working together with the clinic, they verify
that the pet owner is unable to provide the funds needed to save their sick or
injured pet. They then work out the financial arrangements with the clinic and
authorize the treatment needed to save the pet. The owner is never asked or
allowed to reimburse Angels4Animals for any of the money
provided to save their animal.

The Pet Fund
"The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that
provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need
urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer
needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or
emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the
difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical
needs because of the costs involved. The purpose of the Pet Fund is
to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal
medical care need never be made on the basis of cost."

UK Assistance with Veterinary Bills
"Most of us can cope with the financial commitment involved in the
day to day care of our pets. However, how many of us come out in a
cold sweat when our pet is ill or injured and we know we have to take
it to the vet? Most of us are fortunate enough to be able to afford
it but, some of us who love our animals dearly cannot. Unfortunately,we do not have a PDSA or a RSPCA Centre within our area, but there
are a few charities who may be able to help."
