To raise funds to provide financial assistance for medical care which is above and beyond routine care to any species of animals with a main focus on animals that would be needlessly euthanized at rescues, shelters or other facilities that do not have proper funding available for the needed care to keep the animal alive. To also assist private owners who are at risk of losing their pet due to an unforeseen medical bill for the animal, and to educate the community about available resources to help maintain care and ownership of their pets, such as low cost clinics. To assist other animal welfare organizations with situations and projects when such cooperation would result in saving lives. The intent is to eliminate killing savable animals because of monetary issues and to keep pets from being placed in shelters, with an ultimate goal of helping to achieve a no-kill community.
PLEASE NOTE: We are not a shelter or rescue, and do not accept surrendered animals.
We can provide contact information for local animal shelters and rescues. Please email us your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This program does not cover the cost of a mandatory rabies vaccination and license tag, additional examination fees or vaccination fees that may be required by your veterinarian.
In addition to managing the animal population, sterilization prevents irritability and aggressiveness. It can increase the lifespan of your pet, among other health benefits, reduce the urge to roam, and reduce spraying in male cats.
