Veterinary Care Assistance Program
In order to keep more pets in their homes with their families, we are requesting donations for this program that can assist Orange County residents with non-routine, non-emergency veterinary expenses. In general, we see many heartbreaking pet surrenders to our shelter as a result of owners not being able to afford to properly care for their pets when they need medical attention. We know that, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will likely see increases in these types of surrenders as a result of unemployment and other economic pressures.
This program is available to Orange County residents based on their needs and ability to meet income criteria. Obtaining this assistance would require collaboration with local veterinarians or specialists, and may cover full or partial medical expenses for issues such as: skin infections and other skin issues, dental issues, minor surgeries, etc. Funds will be issued to veterinarians and veterinary clinics or hospitals for these services for dogs, cats and other pets from economically challenged households in Orange County, NC.
With the help of your generous donation, this program will help people retain their pets. It will be extremely beneficial for pets, pet owners, and Orange County Animal Services. For more details, please visit https://www.orangecountync.gov/2538/Veterinary-Care-Assistance-Program.
