Second Chance offers veterinary care at subsidized rates for qualified households. This can be helpful for those living on fixed incomes. To learn more about our Community Veterinary Hospitals and qualifying for subsidized pricing.
This program began as an extension to our Pet Food Pantry program that provides pet food to local food pantries. We found that in addition to pet food, elderly need assistance with basic pet care during these tough economic times.
Many of the elderly cannot afford to provide basic medical care for their pets and/or don’t have the transportation available to get their pets to a veterinarian. This program assists pet owners by providing the services right at their doorstep. By going to elderly housing areas, we are able to help the elderly to keep their pets healthy and up to date on vaccines. This prevents the elderly from having to choose between their pet and putting food on their table.
Thanks to a grant from the Banfield Foundation we are able to offer this program to help pets and their loving owners! If you would like further information on this new program, please email us.
