I was reading a news article on MSNBC about ways to save money in caring
for our pets. They mentioned a Helping Pets Fund by AAHA (American
Animal Hospital Assoc.) that will help owners (on a case by case
situation) pay for major medical procedures when the owner's are
financial unable to cover the expenses. Each request for help seems to
be submitted by veterinary staff to AAHA and if approved, a grant is
given for at least partial payment of the procedure. The animal must be
treated at an AAHA accredited clinic.
I thought this was a very interesting "find" and is not something I've
heard of before as being available through AAHA. I do know of a similar
program, however it is only available to Labrador Retrievers, especially
those that are rescued or adopted from a rescue or shelter.
