If you are dealing with a veterinary emergency, it is your responsibility to get your animal to a veterinary provider and to pay to determine diagnosis and prognosis for survival. Our funding is for treatment of survivable conditions only.
If you are applying for emergency foster care you must call before submitting an application. 719-495-6083 M-F 10:00am - 5:00pm MST. If you receive the voicemail message when you call, please leave a detailed message and your call will be returned as quickly as possible. Do not complete the application until you hear from us. Foster care placement is contingent upon available space and proof that your animal is healthy and socialized. We require at least 24 hours’ notice upon receipt of your application and all the required information in order to arrange for foster care.
Applicants must pass the qualification survey and submit a completed application and all the required documentation.
Applications that are not complete or are not accompanied by the required documentation will not be reviewed. You must submit all the required documentation within 24 hours after you submit your application or your application will be declined.

HHF’s mission is to keep animals in their current homes, not make it possible for people who cannot afford pets to take animals in. If you have found a stray and know that you cannot afford routine care, let alone major/emergency care, please take that animal to a reputable animal shelter or rescue. These facilities have the resources to provide care and to re-home adoptable animals. Please note: If you have found an ill or injured stray and decide to keep it knowing you can’t provide care, that may be considered animal abuse and you may be subject to fines by animal control for not seeking help for the animal.
If you have not provided your animal with routine veterinary care in more than 18 months, we will not consider your application. Animals require care in order to remain healthy. If one human year equals roughly 7 dog/cat years, then missing check-ups for even one year is the equivalent of you not seeing a doctor or dentist for seven years. By the time an animal shows obvious symptoms of distress or pain, it may already be too late.
HHF does not accept cases that could have been prevented with appropriate care. If an animal sustains an injury due to the human’s neglect, hit by a car because dog not on leash or in fenced yard, animal was stepped on, or injured due to unsafe living conditions, we will not consider assistance.
If you do not qualify, please proceed to the Resources tab on the home page of the Website and click on the Pet Care Resource Directory. This directory includes numerous listings for other pet assistance programs.
If approved for assistance, you will receive no more than $500 per animal. No one is guaranteed $500 - rewards vary based on number of cases pending and available resources. If the estimate for treatment exceeds HHF’s award, it is your responsibility to apply for and secure additional funding BEFORE HHF funding will be released to the service provider.
If approved for funding for veterinary or training assistance, the procedure or training must begin within 21 days of approval. We cannot and do not hold funding as we receive applications and inquiries on a daily basis.
Emergency foster care is provided for pet parents who are hospitalized or recovering from a medical procedure. We may be able to help in short-term emergencies such as out-of-state family emergencies, but can no longer assist with housing issues. If approved for emergency foster care, please note that we can only keep animals for six weeks or less. We are not equipped to provide long-term care. If we take your animal into foster care and you fail to stay in touch or reclaim your pet at the agreed upon date, HHF will surrender custody of the animal to a local shelter or rescue for rehoming. All animals coming into emergency foster care must be current on vaccinations, in good health (some chronic health conditions may be accepted), and be well socialized. We cannot accept pets with severe separation anxiety, a history of biting or attacking, or aggression towards other animals.
Clients receiving assistance from HHF will be asked to give back by volunteering time or fund raising efforts in their communities on HHF’s behalf.
