Keeping Pets & People Healthy at Home

At One Health Organization, we offer comprehensive solutions to:

  • Inform pet parents about resources
  • Provide Vouchers to pay for veterinary services
  • Build partnerships for a bold plan

 

Our work supports an invaluable connection that provides companionship and health benefits to low-income seniors and the disabled living at or below 200% of the federal poverty level and their pets. There are an estimated 35,000 qualified households in Northeast Ohio needing financial assistance to help them pay their veterinary bills for their dogs and cats.

The only limitation on the number of people who can receive Vouchers is the availability of funds.

Inform: Pet Owner Services

Pet Owner Services

Finding the resources to lead a healthy life with a pet can be challenging, and One Health Organization receives calls daily from people seeking such information. Online resources for Northeast Ohio pet parents include:

  • A comprehensive directory of veterinary clinics in Northeast Ohio can help pet parents choose a veterinary clinic and those accepting Vouchers issued by One Health Organization.
  • A list of nonprofits and businesses that can help pet parents, especially those on a low budget, lead healthy lives with their pets is available at the Resources for Pet Parents web page.
Provide: Voucher-based Pet Healthcare Program for Eligible Households

Voucher-based Pet Healthcare Program

Pet parents frequently contact One Health Organization seeking financial assistance to help pay their veterinary bills.

  • Established in 2014, this program provides Vouchers worth up to $250 that help make veterinary care affordable for older adults and those with disabilities living at or below 200% of the current federal poverty rate.
  • Recipients must live in one of the seven counties covered, which include Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga, Summit, Lorain, Medina, and Portage Counties.

 

If you believe you meet eligibility requirements, you can be placed on the waiting list to receive Vouchers.

Build: Partnership Development

Partnership Development

Forging partnerships with other nonprofits and businesses is needed to create a campus-like setting to provide comprehensive services to vulnerable pet-owning populations in the Cleveland-area. Plans for the future include workforce development opportunities.
