Outreach Requests

For people living on the streets, or people in housing facing some sort of intervention due to animals, environment, and/or health, or, intervention/social service agencies hoping to help with a home-based solution to promote positive outcomes, food/survival items: Outreach Request

Access to Veterinary Care:

To request financial assistance with vetting costs: Vet/Medical Request

Please Note: 

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

 

Spay/Neuter

To request assistance to spay or neuter your pet: Spay/Neuter Request
