Pet Financial Aid Resources for Low-Income Families
Pets are an incredible source of love, affection, and joy for many people across the world. Many of us are taking advantage of the benefits of having a furry, feathery, or scaly friend to call our own. In fact, as of 2017, as many as 68 percents of US households have a pet.

Unfortunately, for all the great things about having a pet, there’s also an inevitable fact that at some point they’ll get sick or injured and need medical treatment. For low-income families especially, the question of how to pay for vet bills, especially unexpected emergencies, is one that may loom large.

What’s more, the cost of paying for veterinary care has been drastically increasing over the last several years. It’s estimated that US pet owners will spend an astounding $18 billion on vet bills in 2018 alone.

And, because these costs are rising so dramatically, many people are reporting an increase in what’s known as “economic euthanasia,” the tragic situation where a pet owner decides to put down their companion animal because they can’t afford necessary medical treatment.

Still, many nonprofits and charitable organizations have come to rescue, recognizing the fact that no one should have to face losing their companion animal because they cannot afford their medical care. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 40+ organizations that offer financial assistance for pet owners, financial aid for sick pets, and pet surgery assistance for low-income families.
