Banfield Foundation resources for pet owners


Our list of nonprofit organizations which serve qualifying pet owners

While the Banfield Foundation® does not provide direct support to individual pet owners, we want to provide information about other nonprofit organizations that do.

If you are a pet owner struggling to find veterinary care and pet food resources, please review this list of national veterinary care resources and local resources by state. If you are still unable to find the help you need, we encourage you to contact your local humane society and/or shelter(s); they are most likely to know about local low-cost or free services available. We also have a list of crowdfunding sites here that may be able to help.

Please help us maintain this important resource by sending information on organizations we're missing. Send us the name, address and website link to include at [email protected].

Organizations that assist pet owners
HOPE Funds

HOPE Funds at Banfield Pet Hospital®

HOPE Funds offers financial assistance for income-qualified pet owners whose pet is suffering from an immediately life-threatening condition. You do not need to be an existing Banfield Pet Hospital to apply for HOPE Funds, but treatment will need to be done at a Banfield Pet Hospital. Due to the high demand for assistance, not everyone who applies for HOPE Funds will be approved, and the entire cost of your pet’s treatment will not be covered. All applications submitted must be reviewed for both medical and financial eligibility.

Please contact your local Banfield Pet Hospital for more information and eligibility.
