Q: Financial Aid for (3) cats medicine?

March 10, 2011 | By Frankie2011 | 1 answer | Expired: 1784 days ago

I have three cats that have tape worms and need flea medicine. I h Iave contacted one shelter and no response. I will call the spca. It seems like that charities often help with adoptions, and shelter pets. No help with maintenance. It's a long story as to why I have three, but that is the situation. I have learned that it is a luxury to have pets. It costs LOTS of money to take care of properly. Don't know what to do.......ANY ADVICE FOR ME IN PETALUMA, CA 94952? Thanks. I am on a fixed disability income.

Pets are a huge responsibility. They don't just require food & shelter...they need annual check ups, immunizations, & they have health problems & medical emergencies. The older a pet gets, the more important it is that they get regular health screenings because they're more prone to the diseases of old age. There are some organizations out there set up to help. Here's a list of some places that you can contact:

American Animal Hospital Association

Angels 4 Animals

Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance (FVEAP)


The Pet Fund

Animal Wish List (Yahoo! group)
