The work of Paws and Claws Urgent Medical Fund keeps animals out of shelters – thank you for your ongoing support.

Thousands of animals are sent to shelters and euthanized each year, many because of treatable medical conditions. While costs are an inevitable part of the responsibility of owning companion animals, The Paws and Claws Urgent Medical Fund assists owners in covering medical costs beyond the normal expenses of vaccination, spay & neuter surgeries, food and routine veterinary care. Adopting a companion animal always involves both expense and commitment, and if owners have a resource to help with medical services, their animals can receive necessary care despite the financial burdens involved.

The purpose of the Paws and Claws Urgent Medical Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost. Perhaps most importantly, we provide information to owners about preventative care, pet insurance programs, and financial services which will ensure that pet owners are able to develop financial resources on their own and avoid future emergencies through care and planning. Such information is often hard to find, and Paws and Claws Urgent Medical Fund provides a user-friendly, comprehensive starting place where all of these resources can be easily accessed.
