If there’s one thing you can be certain of, it’s the fact that you can’t plan for everything- especially as a pet owner! Maybe an accident brings medical bills costing thousands more than what you have in your account, or your pet has recently received a terminal diagnosis…where do you begin? Since our organization launched this year, we have already had many conversations with members of the community in tough situations looking for additional resources beyond what we can offer. We recognized this need for a comprehensive list and began compiling websites, missions, and locations of various organizations. You can view the entire list by clicking here. In the meantime, here are 10 resources we chose that we believe every pet owner should be aware of.
The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC)
