Hero program

Helping veterans with pet medical bills they cannot afford

Our hero program provides essential, life extending, and palliative care to pets adopted through our program that their veterans are unable to pay. It is part of our philosophy of surrender prevention where moderate and occasionally large contributions to pets’ veterinary bills prevent unnecessary surrender, suffering, or death.

Through the years our hero program has paid for items as modest as monthly preventatives and vaccines to more costly, complex surgeries and cancer treatments. Each request is considered on a case-by-case basis. For approved requests, all payments are made directly to treating veterinarians at a negotiated, charity discount.

Much like our hardship program, our hero program reinforces our primary mission to uplift veterans’ lives while saving the most vulnerable dogs and cats. Contributions to the hero fund for veterinary care are restricted, meaning they are used solely for the beneficiaries of the hero program.
