The Lort Smith Pets In Need Fund was established in response to an identified need of clients who are doing it tough and cannot afford treatment for their beloved pet. Even with our discounts and payment-plan options, the cost of veterinary care was simply still out of their reach.
These clients are responsible pet carers who have done the very best for their pets, but they may have experienced a crisis that has tipped them over the edge financially and so they cannot afford the treatment their pet requires. As a result some clients consider surrendering their pet – which is why the Pets In Need Fund is so critical, as it ensures we can keep carers and their much-loved pet together.
The criteria to access the fund is stringent and capped.
