The Humane Society
Pets need food and shelter too. Sometimes families have pets but cannot afford the cost at the moment to feed, spay/neuter, and care for the health of a pet. The Humane Society has a list of places that will provide financial assistance for pet owners in need of care. Guidelines for vouchers to cover for spay/neuter vary according to the county in which you reside. Some organizations listed provide food for your pet in the meantime.
