A Bit About Our Cause
59% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. Yet, 68% of American households own at least one pet. The ASPCA estimates that the annual cost of owning a dog is over $1800, while the average cost of an emergency veterinary visit is between $800 and $1,500.
In the event of an emergency, most pet owners cannot afford treatment, leaving them faced with the tough decision to humanely euthanize their beloved animals. Economic constraints account for the euthanasia of as many as 500,000 animals each year.
As veterinary professionals, pet owners and animal rights advocates, our founders envision a world in which economic euthanasia is no longer the only option for the overwhelming majority of pet owners faced with an emergency. Whereas many individuals do not qualify for CareCredit or in-office payment plans, our grants are made available to underserved populations. Target grantees include low-income families, veterans, military families, senior citizens, disabled individuals, students and every hard-working individual or family that struggles to make ends meet.
Finances should never be the reason pets and their owners cannot enjoy another day together. It is our hope that, with the help of compassionate donors and available grants, they no longer will.
