The Michigan Animal Health Foundation (MAHF) has a new Companion Animal Fund which will begin accepting applications for funding April 1, 2017.
The Companion Animal Fund is a service to MVMA members that subsidizes non-elective treatment to a select group of pet owners. In order to qualify for funding, pet owners must:
- Be otherwise unable to pay for treatment
- Be a current client of a veterinary hospital with an animal being treated by a member of the Michigan Veterinary Medical Association
- Be under the federal poverty level, on Medicaid or on WIC (Women Infants & Children)
MVMA veterinary hospitals are eligible to receive up to $500 per client and a total of up to $500 per clinic/hospital. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis until the year’s supply has run out and will begin again at the start of the next year. We hope to expand both funding and eligibility in the future and increase the total funds allotted per clinic/hospital.
As this is an MVMA member service, funding applications must be completed and submitted by veterinary staff and signed by an MVMA member. Applications will not be accepted from pet owners.
