Nobody should have to choose between their best friend and their electric bill

The Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society’s Pet Emergency Fund was established in 1999 to help people with financial needs afford pet care in emergency situations.

You Can Help

Please help us save the lives of animals and help pet owners who otherwise could not afford the cost of emergency veterinary care.

Families Can’t Afford
to Lose a Pet

For nearly 25 years, Pet Emergency Fund has been offering financial support in Erie & Niagara counties to families who cannot afford emergency medical treatment for their pets.
