The cost of pet food, veterinary medications and Rx diets have risen tremendously! Our income has not. Please help us maintain our committment to our current pet owning clients and continue to take applications from low income pet owners trying to keep their pets happy and healthy in their homes. Our targets are fixed low income seniors and those with disabilities. Click the button below to donate on-line.
