Emergency Veterinary Assistance

Financial assistance is offered, as resources allow, to assist with major or emergency veterinary care. Qualified candidates must complete the application for assistance and submit with proof of financial need and other required documents.

Please note that in veterinary cases, HHF funds are for treatment only. We do not cover the cost of diagnosing medical issues, so candidates must have already received a diagnosis, treatment plan, and survival prognosis of fair or better to qualify.

Free food and the delivery to high-risk pet parents sheltering in place and those who are quarantined due to exposure or caring for an ill loved one.

Vouchers up to $150 towards the purchase of medication.

Drive-Up Pet Food Pantries

To assist those pet parents who are not high-risk, but are struggling financially, HHF offers drive-up Pet Pantries.

Additional services & resources


Service animal aid fund

Do you have a service animal? Special consideration is given to medical service animals living in Colorado as long as they meet the Americans with Disabilities Act definition of a service animal.

When applying for assistance, make sure to check “yes” when asked if you have a service animal.


Emergency foster care

Short-term, emergency foster care (8 weeks or less) is available only for animals living with seniors who are hospitalized or recovering from illness or injury. This assistance is offered as space allows in the Pikes Peak Region only.


Older Pet Parent Services

Our Older Pet Parent Services focuses on older human clients (50 years of age and older) with companion animals in need. We acknowledge that older clients may need additional help with post-surgical care for their pets and transportation to and from appointments. Hands-on assistance is currently only available in the Pikes Peak Region, while financial assistance is available statewide.


Additional resources

We’ve put together a pet resource directory where you can find a variety of care and services for you and your pet. If you have additional questions feel free to give us a call.
