The Mitzvah Fund provides non-emergency preventative care for animals in need with qualifying owners. The veterinary staff assists good pet owners that are trying the best they can and cannot afford the necessary medical care their pet needs. We have a sliding fee program, and we encourage Mitzvah Fund recipients to pay it forward. That donation will help your animal or a neighbor's animal. What we do is all about supporting our entire village. ​

You will only be able to apply for assistance one time in a calendar year unless special circumstances have been reviewed and approved by the Mitzvah Fund fiscal review board. 

Eligibility for the Mitzvah Fund's services will be determined through application review by our small staff.
