Cause for Paws

For Pet Owners in Need

Sometimes circumstances beyond your control can leave you short on funds and make it impossible for you to pay for the critical veterinary care your loving pet so desperately needs.  It can be hard to find help when the need is immediate.

Cause for Paws was established to help pay for critical veterinary care in special circumstances. But because demand for financial assistance is high and our funds are limited, Cause for Paws is not able to help everyone seeking assistance. We provide partial funding for one-time, emergency or specialty veterinary care to qualified New Mexico residents in financial distress.

We will not grant funds unless a favorable medical outcome is reasonably anticipated and you can demonstrate financial need and responsible pet ownership.


Please review the Grant Eligibility Requirements (Adobe pdf format). 

If you think you and your pet may qualify for assistance, please contact us.  We will review your circumstances with you and help you make the best decisions about the funding for veterinary care for your pet.
