If you are seeking a grant for pet care medical support from SAF, please review the Grant Recipient Guidelines before contacting us.

How to Qualify for Assistance


All monies are paid directly to the veterinarians.
Typically we give between $50 and $100.


Our Criteria

  • People in the Northern Nevada / Lake Tahoe area can apply for funds, but we offer assistance primarily to those on fixed incomes or with annual incomes below the federal poverty guidelines. It is always a one-time grant. Please review our Grant Recipient Guidelines.

  • You must agree to allow SAF to post a picture of your animal along with his/her biography as one of our success stories on the SAF website.

To apply for assistance, you can:

Simple Monthly Donations

We can easily pay $5 for a fancy cup of coffee these days. If you would consider giving only $5 a month (the price of that cup of coffee) over the course of a year it would get one wounded or suffering animal to the vet. That’s spectacular, for only $5 monthly. Sign up for regular donations using the form below
