You can also take a look at the pet grants from all the other states.

This program offers extensive veterinary care to sick, injured, neglected, or abused animals who would otherwise have to be put down. Your donation helps to cover the cost of additional care such as medication, surgery, and other treatments before an animal can be available to be adopted.

These are the amazing results: The suffering animals that were saved from pain find forever homes. It’s a wonderful story of happy endings, all thanks to community generosity.

Its also worth taking a look at SFCCC Veterinary Street Outreach Services (VET SOS) and RUFF – Financial Assistance for Veterinary Care.
