    This information is primarily for individuals with companion animals in a permanent home, but some of them also help rescue organizations for individual animals, or help handicapped people purchase, train, and care for service animals. Perhaps this list of organizations that will help with emergency vet bills may be able to help you in times when the determining factor in saving your pet's life is the ability to pay an unexpected or costly vet bill.

    Note: These organizations help only in EMERGENCY situations such as accidental injuries requiring immediate care, or long term health problems requiring surgery or ongoing treatment, such as orthopedic repairs or chemotherapy for animals with cancer. They are not for people who can't or won't provide basic care for their pets.

    Most of these organizations also accept donations, and many are tax deductible, so if you are able, these would be worthy causes to donate to, where your donation will go directly to help an animal in need.

    AAHA Helping Pets Fund

    As the benevolent arm of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Foundation, the AAHA Helping Pets Fund helps those in need access quality veterinary care for their sick or injured pets. They raise funds and award grants supporting veterinary care for pets that have been abandoned or whose owners are experiencing financial hardship.

Their work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible.

    Handicapped Pet Help Fund

    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.

    Help-A-Pet helps with vet bills for pets of the physically and mentally challenged, the elderly on fixed incomes, and children of the poor. Proof of income is required, and the pet owner must pay as much of the bill as they can to show the pet owner's committment to the well being of their pet. 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to the veterinarian or medical care giver who is treating the animal.

    Every day, folks just like you list and support the causes (big or small) that they care about most. Over 24,367 organizations have been listed at, with 10 - 20 added every day! Any cause in the U.S. or Canada qualifies, and 501(c)3 nonprofit status is not required. Once your cause is registered with them, they will donate up to 26% of every purchase you make to the cause you designate when you shop online at over 680 brand name stores.

    IMOM (an acronym for "In Memory of Magic")

    Your little dog will be fine, I had to monitor four surgeries a day and nothing bad ever happened. Having lumps removed is possibly the simplest procedure as well! They will be sedated and fall asleep slowly and a tube will be put in their esophagus to keep them asleep. After everything is done with the surgery, they will turn off the anesthesia and your dog will wake up slowly, possibly cry but this is very normal for every dog after waking up. And somebody will be watching the dog recover the whole time!

    like what the other people were saying. but if you think about it, if shes 10 years old with a brain tumor, would you risk her life with that? she might not survive the surgery. Maybe a shelter??( for the money)

    Good Luck and May God be with you!!
