Emergency Financial Assistance


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



San Juan Animal League partners with local veterinarians to evaluate and provide emergency assistance.  If you have an emergency, please read carefully to see if your pet qualifies for this funding.

EMERGENCY IS DEFINED AS: traumatic injury, life-threatening issues related to pregnancies, and acute conditions that are life threatening (i.e. lung problems, etc.).

NOT COVERED: chronic issues (i.e. cancer), vaccinations, spay/neuter, ear conditions, parvovirus, and other general health issues.

IF YOUR PET’S CONDITION QUALIFIES: Please fill out the emergency assistance request form here. Once the form has been completed, text 801-1035 and let them know you have completed the application (this application has to be completed first!). A volunteer will contact you from 7am to 7pm to discuss the next steps in the process. Please remember we are not veterinarians and are unable to answer any questions that are directly related to needed medical care.  If the emergency is after regular business hours, please contact your veterinarian.

If you believe your pet has ingested a poisonous substance, please call the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at 888-426-4435.
