Shamrock Animal Fund stays busy through summer months
The Shamrock Animal Fund continues to help animals during the summer months. We receive numerous calls and e-mails requesting help in paying for the care of pets.
Pet owners should take note of the requirements of the Fund that are a necessary part of receiving assistance.
Thank you to all of our supporters who continue to make this mission possible.
The animal owner has to assume majority financial responsibility toward the vet bill.
The animal owner has to demonstrate financial need & verify income with appropriate documentation. All information remains confidential.
The animal owner has to apply or co-apply for Care Credit www.carecredit.com 1-800-365-8295 if accepted by the participating veterinarian & provide documentation if denied by Care Credit.
The participating veterinarian has to offer the animal owner a discount toward the veterinary care and/or financial accommodation such as check hold, checking account debit or in-house payment plan.
The Shamrock Animal Fund pays a determined supplement directly to the participating veterinarian.
