Helping Paw Fund

The Helping Paw Fund was created to provide financial assistance to people for the care of their companion animals in times of crisis or financial instability. The fund provides assistance for medical care, including spay/neuter surgeries, and behavioral consultations in East Central Illinois. Note: the fund can not reimburse for services already provided. At this time, we can only provide support to individuals and families living in East Central Illinois.
