AAHA Helping Pets Fund
Providing Veterinary Care for Pets in Need

“The AAHA Helping Pets Fund helps those in need access quality veterinary care for sick or injured pets.”

The heartbreak happens all too often — a pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price.

If the owner is elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much of a stretch for their pocketbook. Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship — making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by Good Samaritans, don't have an owner to pay for treatment.

Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer. Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have been abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship. 



Angels 4 Animals

A non-profit organization and a program of Inner Voice Community Services, has a mission to serve as the guardian angel of animals whose caretakers find themselves in difficult financial situations. At Angels4Animals we believe that animal owners should not have to say goodbye to the animals that they love. Our work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible. Our services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need. 



Care Credit

A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care.

CareCredit, the leader in patient/client financing, has helped more than 3 million patients/clients get the treatment or procedures they needed and wanted. With a comprehensive range of plan options, for treatment or procedure fees from $1 to over $25,000, we offer a plan and a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost every budget.




Our Mission

Helping people help pets. To better the lives of sick, injured and abused companion animals. We are dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged.



The Pet Fund

The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs because of the costs involved. The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost.




The mission of LifeLine is to help homeless or recently rescued animals suffering from life-threatening conditions that require specific and immediate emergency veterinary care. We strive to serve Good Samaritans and rescue groups who take in sick or injured animals. In certain cases, LifeLine can also assist senior citizens and low-income families pay for immediate emergency veterinary care.



CorgiAid has granted aid for 86 dogs this year!

CorgiAid exists to provide a framework for support of rescue efforts for Cardigan and Pembroke Welsh corgis and corgi mixes, for the enhancement of animal welfare and the betterment of mankind.




Disabled Dachshund Society

The cost of surgery to correct problems associated with I.V.D.D. are often beyond the means of most dachshund owners. DDS was founded in part for the purpose of helping families that want to keep their dachshund but cannot afford the cost of proper medical care.

Products, services, and support for elderly, disabled,
and handicapped pets.

From time to time, recognizes a caretaker of handicapped pets that need some special attention, and a little extra help. There are those who are so selflessly dedicated to their animal families that they give up a little more than they can afford.

This special fund is used to provide support to those people.

The Magic Bullett Fund

Dogs can and do survive cancer! Treatment success varies according to the type of cancer, the medical history of the dog and other factors. Caretakers need to know that a diagnosis of cancer is not necessarily a death sentence.





Canine Cancer

Canine Cancer Awareness is truly a from-the-heart cause that has been taken up by those who have been faced with Cancer in their own precious "furbaby". Until you, yourself are faced with this almost always fatal disease in our pets, you are unaware how prevalent it is and how many others are facing, or have faced it. We have found ourselves embarking on a life long journey, committed to helping in any way we can.




Companion Air

Companion Air is the first airline created specifically for pets and their owners. We fly very safe and reliable jet-prop aircraft so that we can operate out of small local airports, fly high and fast, and provide a roomy, executive class interior. The use of more, smaller aircraft allow us to provide services much more broadly and at a more reasonable cost. During peak times we may supplement our fleet but the Companion Air fleet is comprised of new aircraft purchased and configured for Companion Air, our pets and owners.
