Resources To Turn To If You Are Having Trouble Affording Veterinary Care For Your Dog
If you have a pet there may come a time when you will need to pay for veterinary medical bills, which, depending on the medical emergency or condition, can be astronomical. Pet insurance can certainly help cover some of the costs, if you have it. But there are times when a pet's medical emergency or illness will exceed your resources. In cases such as these, pet owners may face an agonizing choice.
With this in mind, here are some financial resources and options you can look to for help. Read more
$5 Feral Friday!!
Every Friday we will post our Paypal button on Facebook for those wishing to donate $5. The money will be used to spay/ neuter the feral kitties that we try to help.
Each feral cat costs approximately $80 to be on the road to good health. We TNR (trap, neuter and return ) our feral friends along with shots and other meds as needed: flea treatment, ear mite treatment, deworming, etc. Many of us have been helping the feral cats for a long time on our own and and it tends to get difficult: we try to socialize the kittens and find them permanent homes plus take care of feral colonies by feeding and TNR.
If you would like to financially support us with our cause; please participate in $5 Feral Fridays. You can donate using the "$5 Feral Friday" Paypal link on our website OR through our Facebook page (Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist)
Thank you for your support!
Open your home to the joy of fostering!
The rewards are great. Yes, it takes a very special person to be a foster. These animals work their way into your heart and then, you have to let them go. If you have the strength to do this, you are rewarded ten-fold by the knowledge that you give your charges, these innocent dogs or cats, a chance at life. HOPE relies almost entirely on fosters for our rescue activities. We are always looking for new recruits as there are always more animals in need of rescue. Several local shelters often contact HOPE when they have animals with poor prospects in the shelter for any number of reasons. In some cases, when we are unable to accept these animals due to the lack of available fosters, they are euthanized. Take a look at our "Available Dogs" and "Available Cats" on our website. All of these animals have HOPE fosters to thank for their new lives. We quite literally could not save these animals without you. Please consider fostering for HOPE.
You can fill out a foster application online by clickingOnline Foster Application or, you call 518.428.2994 for more information.
Once you have applied and been accepted, our Foster Care Agreement will need to be signed. You can view that here: Foster Care Agreement.
