Pet Care Assistance

Helping Pets and Pet Owners in Need

Angell Animal Medical Center-Boston offers financial assistance through MSPCA’s Pet Care Assistance program.

The Pet Care Assistance program at MSPCA-Angell was established in 1990 to provide funds for three basic purposes:

  • to support medical care at Angell Animal Medical Center for sick or injured animals whose owners have limited financial resources.  Excellent veterinary services are costly and many low-income pet owners need financial support to obtain needed care for their pets.  At times when the animal-human relationship is jeopardized and there is truly both a medical and financial need, our financial assistance program lends support. 

  • to support the medical care of abused or neglected animals connected with our Law Enforcement efforts.  When our Law Enforcement officers encounter situations from which they must remove animals who are being neglected or abused, the animals frequently require veterinary care, sometimes for extended periods of time.  Pet Care Assistance provides funding for medical care for these animals.   

  • to support the medical care of homeless animals in our adoption centers.  Over 20,000 animals are brought to our Animal Care and Adoption Centers every year. Unfortunately, they do not all come to us in healthy, adoptable condition.  Pet Care Assistance allows our staff to give necessary medical treatment to hundreds of deserving animals, benefitting both the animals and their future owners.
