Sometimes, when a beloved dog or cat is ill or injured, and when the owner has no financial resources available with which to provide veterinary care, what just might be needed is….an Angel.
The Angel Fund Program’s mission is to provide urgent vet services to qualifying cat and dog owners with personal inability to pay, and no other resources. The illness or injury may affect the very life of the pet, and/or the quality of life; without this care, the animal would likely suffer or die. There are firm guidelines for qualification, such as persons on government assistance (disability, social security, TANF, etc.), the homeless, and individuals and families living below poverty level. This fund cannot cover preventative or maintenance care, nor does it cover specialist services. There is a limit to the amount that may be spent on each case.
Since 2013, the Angel Fund has been funded solely by private donors. However, in January 2016, we were fortunate enough to receive a $5,000. grant from the Banfield Foundation. Financial support of HBPets will also help fund these services, so vital to our pet-loving community. Although our wish is to help all cats and dogs needing help, please understand that, due to financial constraints, we simply cannot take on all cases.
However, we know important our pets are in our lives, how much we love them, and we will do our very best to dispatch our Angels to a cat or dog in need!
The pictures on this page are of animals whose lives were saved by the Angel Fund….and of course there are many more. Nothing makes us happier than contented purrs and wagging happy tails!
