ASSISTANCE DOG PARTNERS

Veterinary Care Partnership (VCP) Program
IAADP has established an emergency veterinary fund to provide financial aid to United States IAADP Partner Members whose assistance dogs require high cost veterinary intervention beyond their ability to pay. Seven caring companies in the animal health community have responded to the need for this supportive fund with an annual contribution: Bayer Animal Health, Fort Dodge Animal Health, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc., Nestle Purina, Nutramax Laboratories, Procter & Gamble and Royal Canin USA. IAADP is thrilled to have them participate in this humanitarian effort to assist members on a low income. This fund enables assistance dog partner members to provide help for their canine partners if a sudden illness or injury requires high cost veterinary intervention, beyond their financial means.

This is a grant, not an insurance or entitlement program. ONLY the Veterinarian can initiate the request for a grant to Nutramax Laboratories, administrator of the program. Members contacting Nutramax Laboratories directly will VOID their eligibility for a grant.

Our assistance programs are aimed at providing help to individuals whose companion animals are suffering from life-threatening diseases and to the veterinary hospitals treating such animals. The goals of our educational and informational programs are to advance the state of cutting-edge veterinary medicine and to educate the veterinary medical community and the public about critical issues in veterinary medicine and technology.

Our principal programs include:
Sponsor-A-Pet™ Program. Under the Sponsor-A-Pet™ Program, Tails of Hope underwrites the cost of veterinary care for companion animals suffering from cancer or other life-threatening diseases whose owners cannot afford to pay for such care.
Quality-of-Life Program. Tails of Hope’s Quality-of-Life Program undertakes such projects as the establishment of meditation gardens and comfort rooms at veterinary hospitals, respite care programs to assist individuals in caring for ailing companion animals and the donation of much needed food, equipment and other supplies to both individuals and veterinary hospitals.

THE MAGIC BULLET FUND

The Magic Bullet Fund helps people who have made room in their homes and hearts for a canine companion, but do not have the financial resources to provide cancer treatment. To the caretaker of a dog with cancer, the focus is not on advancing medical science or curing cancer! It is to spare or prolong the life of a beloved companion. The Magic Bullet Fund is about giving every dog the chance he or she deserves to survive cancer. At best, it is about beating cancer. At least, it is about giving people and their dogs more time together – more time to find out if their dog may survive cancer, and to create a few more precious moments and lasting memories.

THE SIMPLE DOLLAR’S GUIDE TO FINANCIAL AID FOR PETS

The Simple Dollar offers The Ultimate Guide to Financial Aid for Pets—A comprehensive listing of pet financial aid organizations for pet owners in need. During medical emergencies and times of need, some owners may not have the financial means to cover the high cost of emergency vet bills. To ensure every pet gets the help they need, The Simple Dollar created a state by state guide that provides a list of the resources and organizations in each state that are offering financial assistance for pet owners in need. For many pet owners, their animals are more than just pets, they’re family.
