Help A Pet

Charity: Animals

Help-A-Pet and Help the People Who Love Them.
Established in 1999, Help-A-Pet is a nonprofit organization with a single purpose: to provide financial assistance nationwide for the medical care of pets whose owners are unable to afford the expense. Help-A-Pet is a recipient of the GuideStar Exchange Seal indicating it discloses full and updated information and documentation to the public.

Who We Help

  • Physically and mentally challenged individuals
  • Senior citizens
  • Children of the working poor

For such people, pets provide a vital therapeutic aid to daily living, unconditional emotional attachment, and protection. Unfortunately, it is often those who need their pets most who face the fiercest financial obstacles to providing medical treatment for their beloved companions. Applicants must provide proof of income eligibility.

Each owner is asked to pay as much as they can towards the cost in order to spread our assistance to as many pets as possible. Cost-sharing with an applicant indicates the owner's commitment to their pet's well-being, and lets you know your donation is being used as efficiently and sensibly as possible.
How We Help
Every dollar donated is used to help pets. Every dollar. Every cent. We have no overhead or salary costs. None. We are an entirely volunteer organization. All payments are made directly to the veterinarian or medical supplier. Most animal-welfare charities do not offer medical treatment. Those that do are often only able to provide services at one location. Through the use of local vets and hospitals, we enable accessible and immediate care from vets who are familiar with the pets. While most of our assistance goes to perform surgeries, we also assist with preventive and curative treatments.
