Financial Aid Guidelines

In order to qualify for financial aid, the animal must be in need of immediate veterinary care for life threatening injury or illness.

The pet’s guardian must meet the following requirements:

1. The guardian must be a United States resident.

2. Has applied for care credit prior to applying to Healing Haven if the veterinarian accepts care credit.

3. Has access to the internet

4. Receives one or more of the following:

  • Medicare or state Medicaid
  • Unemployment or had been receiving unemployment that is now expired
  • Social security as your only income
  • Income from a public assistance program


Is mentally challenged, physically challenged, disabled or a senior citizen


Is a 501(C)(3) rescue group

Documentation Requirements

  • A copy of the veterinarian’s estimate for the necessary veterinary care; this must include spaying  and neutering of the pet if the pet is undergoing anesthesia for another procedure.
  • 2 most recent bank statements. If you receive SSI, then proof of that can be submitted in place of bank statements.
  • Proof of care credit approval/denial (can be a screen shot).

Funds are never allocated directly to the pet’s guardian. They are always sent directly to the treating veterinarian.

Each case is handled on an individual basis.
