Financial Assistance – Guinea Pig
If your Guinea Pig is in need of immediate care, where any delay will put the Guinea Pig at risk, it is your responsibility and duty to seek care for the Guinea Pig immediately. There is no guarantee that the fund will provide financial assistance so we urge you to please not delay care for your pet while waiting for a response on your application. Grants are not guaranteed, and will not exceed $750.00 per guinea pig, $20000 per household. Due to the large volume of applications we receive, the program is unable to help everyone who applies. We often run out of funds before our fiscal year is over so we urge you to apply as quickly as possible.
Before applying, you must have:
An estimate of the cost of care from a veterinarian that has already seen your pet, a clear diagnosis, and a specific treatment plan with a “good” prognosis as determined by a licensed veterinarian. We have referral vets that can work with you if you are looking for payments plans or payment options.
