DCVR's Care Fund was created to assist families, neighbors, and friends, who meet certain criteria, receive emergency and/or specialty care.
- Pet has a good prognosis/should make a full recovery following interventions (intervention should be as conservative as possible to reach a positive outcome), and will not experience chronic disease thereafter.
- Owner has been able to produce SOME funds toward treatment- amount required will vary depending on the case, but half of the estimate at minimum would be the goal.
- Owner must be declined Care Credit and have exhausted all other means to pay (family, friends, credit cards, etc.), or Care Credit must be insufficient to cover costs.
- Owner is responsible for any invoiced amount over the 50% pre-payment plus the Care Fund (limited to the lesser of 50% of estimate, or $1000 maximum from Care Fund for any case) at time of discharge.
