Emergency Financial Assistance


“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress
can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”


Stuff happens. And sometimes when it does, we cannot afford to provide our pet with the care they need. For years, San Juan Animal League has provided an emergency fund for animals – and their owners – during times of crisis.

San Juan Animal League partners with two local veterinarians to evaluate and provide this emergency assistance.  If you have an emergency, please call one of them to make an appointment to have your pet’s condition evaluated.

Animal Haven Clinic  at 505-325-8829, located at 822 E. Main Street St.

Farmington Veterinary Clinic at 505-325-7462, located at 6603 E. Main St.

Once the clinic has looked at your pet and their injuries or condition, the doctor will formulate a plan.  SJAL funding assistance is based on many factors: Medical Urgency, Financial Need, Eligibility, Available Funding.  A co-pay is required for any care provided.

EMERGENCY IS DEFINED AS: hit by car, attacked by dogs, porcupine quills, poisoning, gunshot wounds, dystocia, eye trauma, postule uterus, bloated intestinal twist, broken leg, amputation, excessive bleeding, clogged breathing.

NOT COVERED: tumors, cancer, vaccinations, spay/neuter, diabetic conditions, ear conditions, parvovirus which is preventable through vaccination, other general health issues

We now have an SJAL phone line dedicated to emergencies.  Please call 505-801-1035 to speak to our volunteer regarding any questions you may have.  Please remember that trauma can be very upsetting and it’s important to be courteous as we all want this to be a win, win, win situation.
