The All Creatures Pet Emergency Fund helps raise funds to assist families in the emergency care of their beloved pet.

During these difficult financial times we often meet clients who can't afford emergency care when their pet becomes unexpectedly ill or has a tragic accident. All Creatures Animal Hospital's Pet Emergency Fund provides our clients with financial assistance to help defray the cost of emergency veterinary care. It is our way of easing their emotional and financial pressure during this time while also providing care for their pets.

All Creatures Staff Testimonials:

Each day as a Veterinary Receptionist I answer the phones, escort clients and their pets into rooms for their yearly physical exam and collect funds for the payment for veterinary services. I am routinely faced with a question from a compassionate owner in an emergency situation, Do you have a payment plan? The fact of the matter is, like most businesses, All Creatures Animal Hospital offers clients immediate credit approval for something called Care Credit but unless the client has good credit, this is not always the best answer to relieve financial pressure to help their very sick pet through and unexpected emergency. The Pet Emergency Fund is then offered as another option to aid a furry friend in need. The part of my job where I offer the possibility of financial aid to an owner is not the complete answer but its part of the journey back to hope for a client and their pets.

-Janeen Parkes Veterinary Receptionist

Every day I start the morning with a clean slate. My job as a Veterinary technician allows me to care for sick and healthy pets. Clients sometimes come in with their furry family member and look to us for answers on how to make their only friend in the world better. Our clients are children, elderly, mom and dads, college students and even the quiet man who drives a truck and just happened to pick up a stray dog wandering about. The Emergency Fund at All Creatures Animal Hospital helps ease the pressure of being financial responsible for an unexpected accident or illness affecting a clients' pet. As a technician, it does not feel good to have to look someone in the eyes and say " I can't help you because you can't afford it" The PEF allows us to offer hope in the face of troubled financial times in a pet owner's life. Please donate what you can to our cause and you will be aiding the life of a well-loved pet.

-Kathleen Pitrola Veterinary Technician

I'm a Veterinary Assistant and each day I wake up thinking about how many pets and families we will be able to help. The most rewarding part of my job is when I get to watch a pet walk out that was in serious condition in the days prior. Unfortunately, not all stories end that way. Sometimes we have a pet come in that is in terrible need of medical attention but the family is not able to pay the bill. There is nothing worse than having to tell a family that we are unable to treat their furry family member because they can't afford to pay for it. The Pet Emergency fund helps defray some of those unexpected emergency vet bills. The fund allows us to be able to say "there is something we can do to help you with the cost" This brings relief to so many owners, just knowing that their furry family member will receive the help they desperately need. Please help us in raising money for the Pet Emergency Fund. The more money we raise, the more pets I can watch walk out of the hospital.
