Pet Financial Aid Resources for Low-Income Families

Pets are an incredible source of love, affection, and joy for many people across the world. Many of us are taking advantage of the benefits of having a furry, feathery, or scaly friend to call our own.

Unfortunately, for all the great things about having a pet, there’s also inevitable fact that at some point they’ll get sick or injured and need medical treatment. For low income families especially, the question of how to pay for vet bills, especially unexpected emergencies, is one that may loom large.

Many nonprofits and charitable organizations have come to rescue, recognizing the fact that no one should have to face losing their companion animal because they cannot afford their medical care. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 40+ organizations that offer financial assistance for pet owners, financial aid for sick pets, and pet surgery assistance for low-income families.

Assisted Living for Seniors with Pets

Pet ownership can bring plenty of unexpected benefits for seniors. For starters, research shows that older adults who own a dog walk an average of 22 minutes a day more than seniors who don’t have a dog, and pets are even used in therapy techniques to help seniors with mental illness or dementia.

While the benefits to pet ownership for older adults are numerous, there are also unique challenges when bringing your pet to an assisted living community, including some communities’ lack of space and restrictive pet policies.
