The Ultimate Guide to Financial Aid for Pets

A comprehensive listing of pet financial aid organizations for pet owners in need

When it comes to our pets, they’re more than just animals – they are members of our family. As such, many pet owners would do anything to ensure their pets live long, healthy lives. This would include paying thousand annually on everything from routine wellness care to everyday supplies like food. According to Forbes, people who own large dogs spend at least $1,570 a year which, for an average lifespan of 12 years, could come to over $18,000. And that doesn’t include factoring in expensive emergency medical costs.

Those are scary numbers to consider, and it’s easy to see why so many pet owners find themselves in financial predicaments when it comes to caring for their pets. The good news is, there are hundreds of pet financial aid organizations all over the country that can help.
