Financial assistance for pets

Providing vet care is an essential part of pet ownership, but medical emergencies can come up at any time and the cost of caring for your companion animal can add up quickly. We get calls nearly every day from distraught pet owners needing help with vet bills. While Great Dane Rescue Inc. does not have funding available for individuals needing financial assistance for their pets, we have provided links to several programs that do help pet owners cover emergency medical expenses and other lifesaving medical treatment.

We also encourage pet owners to plan ahead by enrolling their animals in one of the many pet insurance programs available that can cover major medical expenses for a small monthly fee.

IMOM.org is dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged. www.imom.org
