I’m Nicole from Low Income Relief, where we help millions of people save money and get free stuff every year.

I’m frequently asked about free pet care resources and I know how important those precious furbabies are. Melody recently completed our series on free pet care across the United States and we now have low income resources in all 50 states!


We’ve found more than two dozen nationwide veterinary care grants that offer assistance to low income pet owners. I will review a few of them in this video, but for the full list you will need to visit

The AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund program provides help to low income pet owners through their veterinarians. In order to receive funds from this program, you must work with an AVMA-member veterinarian who is enrolled in the VCCF program. The veterinarian can apply for assistance to help with veterinary expenses for low income senior citizens, disabled veterans who need a service dog, victims of domestic violence and those who rescue animals.

Frankie’s Friends provides grants of up to $1,500 per pet to assist with lifesaving emergency or specialty veterinary care treatment. In order to be eligible, you must be unable to afford the full cost of treatment on your own. You will need to provide documentation from your veterinarian that includes a cost estimate, clear diagnosis, a specific treatment plan and a good prognosis for recovery.

Paws 4 A Cure provides up to $500 for assistance with illnesses and injuries. They can assist with medication, insulin, Heartworm positive treatment and medical equipment such as wheelchairs. They do not provide assistance with routine care, vaccinations, spay/neuter services, flea/tick treatments, dental care or euthanasia.

These are just three of the dozens of grant programs we’ve found, so if you’re looking for veterinary care grants then I encourage you to visit our website for more information.


If you are worried about your pet and need an answer right now, I recommend contacting our friends at JustAnswer. They can connect you with a qualified expert who can answer your urgent pet care questions.


While you’re visiting our free veterinary care services list, you’ll also find other helpful pet care resources, including:
Spay and Neuter services
Low cost pet vaccination clinics
Free pet food banks
Free pet boarding services
And more!

Of course, all of these services vary by state and not all services are available in all areas.

For example, free pet boarding services are extremely limited. In some areas, like Tempe, Arizona, up to 90 days of free pet boarding may be provided to pets whose guardians are facing a temporary hardship such as homelessness, illness, eviction, domestic violence, etc. However, we were not able to locate services like this in all areas.

That’s why it’s critically important to visit our website to discover what free pet care services are available in your area.

    It’s too bad that you send low income people looking for help to Just answer.
    WARNING JUST ANSWER GETS YOUR INFO TO CHARGE YOU $5 . In a month they charge your card $46 for a subscription , and will charge it every month until you cancel . It is really terrible thing to do on a site that is recommended by people claiming to help low income households find low cost necessities
    Just answer is just random people serving word salad non answers ,getting your info, then ripping you off. That’s not help .
    Shame on all of you.
    You could probably get better info by just asking on the street . Seriously. Scam to hurt someone who is looking for help already .
    Just answer is worthless.

    I think it’s great that people are willing to help pay for vet services. Nothing in life is "free." Somebody is paying for it. And bless them, whether they are people who are donating money for this, or whether it comes from our taxes. A big thank you to whomever is providing the money for this service.

    I missed live chat but need assistance ,I need urgent surgery as I am going blind .I went to see a opthalmologist/ surgeon and he said my insurance would cover most of cost of surgery .The balance was 6,000 .I am a widow and single mum which my youngest is autistic .Without this surgery I surely will be blind soon. The Dr. even reduced his fee by 4,500 leaving balance of 1,500 .So I was really hoping maybe your organization would know somewhere I could apply for assistance or grants to assist with emergent situations like this ? Thanx

    Free Veterinary Care wow, sounds great.

  8. Christine Pfeffer on June 6, 2022 at 2:35 am

    I typed in what you said and the same the same video keeps coming up . Nothing for my area. None of these could help me with my problem . I can’t afford all the things my dog needs.
    Just answer didn’t respond. None of the services lists you said I would find came up.
    Just this same video over and over. Not much help wasted time.
