We help people living with pets, and those that serve them.
We are particularly interested in helping people who are most susceptible to accidentally getting a disease from an animal (i.e. zoonotic disease). Over 65% of all emerging diseases have an animal origin. Think rabies, avian and swine flu, and more recently Ebola virus. Most of the available information can be found online through the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. However, much of this information may be difficult to understand. It can also be a challenge to find what you really want to know.
Your veterinarian may know a lot about the diseases that are a concern to you. And they can help you prevent common diseases that can make your pet sick. If you don’t currently have a veterinarian, or you’re considering a change, please visit our list of participating veterinary partners.

This program strives to help people living with pets get the resources they need to live a healthy life with their pet. Older adults (55+) and the disabled, as defined by the federal government, seeking financial assistance for necessary veterinary care services must meet eligibility requirements to access available funds for the Veterinary Payment Program.
If you have a dog or cat, and need help affording veterinary care services, we may be able to help. If you live in Cuyahoga County or adjacent counties in Northeast Ohio (Lorain, Medina, Cuyahoga, Summit, Lake, Geauga, or Portage), we may be able to provide vouchers through our Veterinary Payment Program for One Health Family Members. If you don’t live in these areas, we may be able to help you find other financial resources.
To learn more about available resources, look for our blog posts. To get benefits, consider becoming a One Health Family Member. Contact us by phone during normal business hours or send us an email about how you can become a Member.
If you want to help older adults and the disabled access these services, please consider a donation of $5, $10, or more. Thank you for your kind consideration!
