4. Access to Veterinary Care:
To request financial assistance with vetting costs: Vet/Medical Request
The vetting industry has struggled to adjust to covid-era demand, which has made access to veterinary care much harder, wait times to be seen can be lengthy, communication of care is tougher to navigate, clinics and staff are stressed, and even emergency care is sometimes at capacity.
Processing veterinary requests also require time-intensive, sensitive, detail-oriented, and often traumatic work from our volunteers. It can be heartbreaking to throw yourself into trying to save an animal, only to not be able to access care needed timely, or reasonably.
We do not guarantee help from all requests. Pet owners in life/death scenarios where time to act is limited, should seek out multiple resources.
We do NOT assist:
pet breeding families
people who have had a pet who has needed continuing care support, who add another pet to the home
people who have had a pet who has needed continuing care support, but isn’t following care plan
people who refuse spay/neuter
pets where we are worried about their continued safety in the home
people who have “rescued” an animal, and hopes to adopt it out/rehome it
people who are verbally disrespectful to SOAR staff or vet industry staff
