Best Friends Together provides financial assistance grants to help pet parents afford their pets. The purpose of our programs are to help prevent pets from suffering, being euthanized, or being surrendered.

If your pet is in immediate danger, it is critical that you do not delay vet care. It is your responsibility to seek care for the pet immediately. Best Friends Together makes no guarantees of financial assistance so please do not delay care while waiting for an application response.

Best Friends Together does not reimburse for payments already made. All payments will be made directly to the treating veterinarian and never to an individual.

Best Friends Together does not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, sexual orientation, gender expression, race, disability, political affiliation, or military affiliation. Best Friends Together reserves the right to deny funding to anyone for any reason.
