Don’t forget San Francisco Aid for Animals when you have a client in need of financial assistance. We have three programs in 2018 to assist you. Our Grant-in Aid Program has already provided almost $30,000 in funding to help 53 pets so far this fiscal year. Together with matching services donated by hospitals it has resulted in over $60,000 in life-saving care. Many participating hospitals that signed up for this year’s program still have funds remaining so please encourage your hospital to use all funds before the June 15 deadline.
When you are working on a larger case where anticipated costs are higher think about the Ingrid Tauber Fund for Animals. In 2017 the TFA provided over $45,000 in funds and helped 13 pets. Funding of up to $5000 per case will be considered and the hospital needs only to provide a 25% matching donation of in-kind services or discounts. Any veterinarian may apply for 2018 TFA funds. More information on both programs is available on the “For Providers” page at sfafa.org or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, the Ingrid Tauber Fire Fund for Animals was established to help victims of the Northern California wildfires in October. This one-time fund provides immediate and follow up care to any animal and their owners who were impacted in any way by the fires. This fund has just over $7000 left and is available to any hospital with no match required. Please contact us for details.
