The following is a list of organizations that provide financial assistance to pet owners in need. Please keep in mind that each organization is independent and has their own set of rules and guidelines. Therefore you will have to investigate each one separately to determine if you qualify for assistance. Also see our page for Other S/N Programs. Some of those organizations also offer low-cost vet care. For shelters and adoption information for Georgia, visit our Links page.

The Pet Fund—thepetfund.com The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care.

The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost.
