Currently we simply cannot meet the demand for our services. People have complained "Why don't you answer me? I have asked for help and you haven't answered!"
That is because we are overwhelmed. If you write to us, currently we have a several month long waiting list. There is no guarantee that you will receive help from us.
- No building of our own
- No paid staff
- Very little money
- Very little time outside of our full time jobs (that we need to do in order to pay our bills!)
- No phone number - because if we did, it would be ringing off the hook and we would have even more people whom we cannot help.
- To borrow space at local shelters in order to get our work done.
Pets in Need cares about each and every pet. However, we simply cannot help everyone who asks for help. We are a tiny group and we can only help about 4 to 6 animals per month. This is unfortunate, because we get requests for help nearly every day.
We are actively seeking a partnership with a sponsoring organization. Our dream is to help everyone who qualifies for help. That dream is a long way off.
For now, we are doing the best we can, a few pets at a time.
Look for other funding sources. Try redrover.org and healinghaven.org. They may be able to give you money to seek help at a regular vet.
And remember - you MUST be able to certify that you are low income and eligible for our services!!! There are many good, kind veterinarians in private practice who may be able to help you, especially if you can receive funds form the two websites mentioned above.
