emergency ​medical fund

your donation makes it possible

I​t is not uncommon that cats and dogs in our care may need extensive (and expensive) medical treatment due to sickness or injury. We hope to help pay for these treatments through the resources of our Emergency Medical Fund. This fund is established to help cats and dogs with urgent health issues - making it possible for us to afford the needed care to help save an animal's life and relieve its pain and suffering. We know we c​​an count on our supporters and their financial help in filling our Emergency Fund with dollars of love, care and understanding. Whether you can give a little or a lot, it all does make an important difference. AWS and the animals in our care are truly grateful for your donations. Any amount is appreciated. Thank you for your support!

The EMERGENCY MEDICAL FUND at Animal Welfare Society

Veterinarians that AWS partner with graciously discount many of their services for us. We are entirely grateful for this. However, we still average over $9,000 per month on the medical care for our animals. Some longer term residents require medication which can be costly. And, too often we are placed in situations where our rescue efforts are compounded by the health issues of the animal we are striving to save for adoption. Because of these situations AWS is placed between the proverbial "rock and hard place" – where the medical care and needs of a our animals actually goes well beyond the limits of our established budget. In order to address these needs we have established the AWS Emergency Medical Fund.
