Financial Assistance for Pet Owners

Financial assistance for pet owners
by By Daniela Caride of The Daily Tail

If you are struggling to keep your pet, know that you have options before surrendering him. Here is a list of organizations that provide financial assistance for pet owners in need. Each organization has its own rules and guidelines, so I would recommend you to explore their web sites before applying.

If you have the resources to treat your pets, and you are looking for a charity to contribute to, you may be interested in looking into these organizations. With the economic downturn, they are hurting.

  1. Thank you for the link to The Daily Tail and for spreading the word about help for pet owners!


  2. It's wonderful that there are so many options for people that care about animals! I was thinking to take at home a dog from these that are trained to guide blind people. I can have it a year, but I worry about that I will become too attached and won't let him go...

  3. This is an amazing resource. lol catz.
