Financial Assistance to Pet Owners 


Our Joey & Oreo HEAL (JOH) Grants and financial assistance programs operate under our Humanity mission where we help address human issues underlying canine suffering and economic euthanasia. We provide financial assistance to owners of senior (6+years) dogs requiring vet care, so pets and families can stay together. Please see instructions below:

Applying for Financial Assistance

JOH Grants covers most categories of veterinary treatment, EXCEPT:

1. Routine health care (annual exams, vaccinations, parasite control, dental, etc.)

2. Diagnostic testing (X-rays, ultrasounds, bloodwork, urine/stool, genetic, etc.)

We will consider most requests for needed medical care for dogs. We cover surgeries and treatment for broken leg, intestinal obstruction, chronic conditions, cancer treatment, heart disease, endocrine diseases, eye diseases, end-of-life vet recommended euthanasia etc. Funding will be limited to a $1,000 limit per applicant. Funding may be less than that amount depending on the funds needed and the funding available. We expect pet parents to cover a minimum 50% of the vet bill.


The first step in applying for financial assistance is to email with:

1.  A brief description of your dog’s medical needs;

2.  A financial estimate of the treatment required from your veterinarian;

3.  Proof of financial need, (i.e., unemployment, insufficient income to pay for treatment, other emergency circumstances, etc.). such as copy of your latest tax return, pay stub, SSI Disability, Medicaid, etc.; and,

4.  Phone number where you can be reached.

Immediately after, your email will be reviewed and possible financial assistance recipients may be asked to complete our application. We regret it is not possible to fund every request submitted, as we receive several on a daily basis and typically have a waitlist. We thank you for caring for your four-legged best friends.♥
