Can’t Pay for Your Pet’s Care? These 12 Programs Can Help

Advertisement

We all want the best for our pets, but life sometimes gets in the way. When there is a sudden illness or accident, it can leave us facing large vet bills we were not expecting. A job loss can make it hard to feed ourselves and our beloved pets, and relocating can leave you wondering how you’re going to be able to take your pets with you. Luckily, there are resources out there to help you through hard times.

#1 – IMOM

This all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charity helps people cover vet bills when they just can’t do it themselves. They also help with spay/neuter and have a staff on hand to answer questions or get you the resources you need for any issues with your pet.

#2 – YouCaring.com

Youcaring.com is a free crowdfunding site that focuses on raising money for people who need it for personal reasons – everything from education to pet expenses. Each month, they have over 2,000 crowdfunding campaigns for people needing help with pet care costs. Recently, Cheryl Dohn raised more than $8,000 on her campaign (goal was only $2,500) to help her dog Roxy Mama.
