Sponsoring Vet Care
We provide financial support for the medical care of pets in our foster program and have done so for the Stamford Animal Control Center in previous years. OPIN not only sponsored preventive and routine care, but was also able to give pets with extraordinary medical needs the treatment necessary to live out a long, healthy life in a forever home.
In special cases, we provide continued financial support for treatment of a pet's pre-existing condition throughout the life of that pet. For example, our fabulous dog, Barley, has very low-grade Lupus. As potential adopters may have feared that his low-grade Lupus would require high-cost, high-maintenence treatment, we agreed to pay for his medication for the rest of his life.
Helping Pet Guardians in Need
We created our Keep Fido at Home fund to provide one-time financial assistance for responsible pet guardians in our community who are facing temporary financial challenges (loss of job, illness, housing problem) and have a pet with a medical emergency.
