Pets are Family

SafeHaven Humane Society is committed to working hard to keep families and their pets together. People often struggle financially to afford access to medical care and training services for their pets, leaving them no choice but to surrender their beloved family members to shelters in hopes of giving them access to the care they need. The Pets Are Family Fund is here to bridge the gap and keep pets in their loving homes. This grant is intended for those with financial need.

The goals of the Pets Are Family Fund are to:

  • Prevent homelessness by providing pet owners the resources that will improve the pets’ overall health and wellness or quality of life.
  • Help individuals who financially lack the resources to have their pets spayed or neutered. Grant amounts for spay/neuter surgeries are predetermined based on prices of local, low-cost clinics.
  • Award amounts will not exceed: Male dog neuter = $150, female dog spay = $175, male cat neuter = $100, female cat spay = $100.
  • Provide grant funding to help animals that need medical treatment that owners can not financially afford at the time. Grants are limited to $400 per household.

At SafeHaven, we understand that pets are family. When a pet needs a treatment or becomes ill and an owner is not able to care for it, but only wants the best for their family member — that is where SafeHaven is hoping to step in. We hope to make a difference in the life of the pet and for the owners who truly love them and value their companionship.

To apply, please fill out the application below and an employee at SafeHaven will reach out to you in approximately 3-5 business days.

Applicants must be residents within the Mid-Willamette Valley to ensure we are helping as many local families and pets as possible.

Applications are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. To be able to help as many pets/families as possible, we have a monetary limit on the grant request of $400 worth of services per household. Please include the scheduled date of the procedure (if known/applicable) and submit an estimate/quote from a veterinarian that lists the costs of the procedure with your application (for anything other than spay/neuter financial assistance). The grant is only payable directly to the veterinarian’s office.

Awards may also be available on a case-by-case basis for behavior and training services with the goal of improving behavior issues to keep the pet in the home and prevent surrender to a shelter. Inquire for more information.

This program made possible with the help of Petco Love.
