The MSPCA-Angell offers financial assistance through our Pet Care Assistance program.
The Carter Luke Pet Care Assistance Fund 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. Thousands of 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.
If you are a client of Angell Animal Medical Center that is interested in seeing if you may qualify for our Financial Assistance program, please contact our Admitting Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that assistance can only be awarded for hospitalized, recently hospitalized, or soon-to-be hospitalized patients that meet our prognosis requirements, and to families that meet our pre-determined income guidelines.
Please note: MSPCA-Angell Pet Care Assistance (PCA) benefits patients and clients treated at the MSPCA-Angell hospitals, clinics, and adoption centers. While many patients and clients have benefited from PCA and we make every effort to maximize our funding of PCA, the fund is limited and clients must meet financial eligibility criteria in order to qualify.
