The Pet Lifeline Financial Assistance Program

Each month, we select one pet owner to award financial aid. Our goal is to provide vet bill assistance to the pets that need it most. The selection process is based on your financial need and your pet’s current medical situation. These funds are not intended to fully pay for any specific medical procedure or to compensate you for all your pet’s medical expenses. They are intended to assist and help pay a portion of your veterinary bill, so your pet can begin to get the necessary care.

We notify pet financial aid recipients monthly, by the first Friday of each following month.

*Please note: The maximum giving amount is $200. Owners are only eligible to receive pet financial assistance one time. You will not be chosen more than once, so please do not apply again if you’ve received financial aid from our program previously.


Eligibility Requirements


The Pet Lifeline Program is exclusively for non-basic, non-urgent care cases only. For reference, there are four pet care categories:

  1. Basic medical care (regular checkups/exams, spay and neuter procedures, dental, vaccinations, etc.)
  2. Non-basic, non-urgent medical care (cancer treatment, heart disease; chronic conditions, endocrine diseases, diabetes, eye diseases, IBD, etc.)
  3. Urgent medical care (diagnostic testing, broken limbs, torn ligaments, internal bleeding, etc.)
  4. Emergency medical care (life-threatening conditions, injuries, or illnesses)

Other eligibility requirements for pet financial assistance include:

  1. Eligible pet owners must live in the United States
  2. Vet bill assistance is for domestic pets only (i.e. any animal that is normally kept inside a domestic dwelling, including dogs, cats, rabbits, parrots, and similar-sized animals; this does not include livestock, such as horses, cows, goats, etc.)
  3. Eligible pet owners can apply for a one-time payment which must be for a pet they already own.
