Balfour's Friends Foundation

The Balfour's Friends Foundation assists persons with low income with the cost of veterinary care by raising funds, maintaining funds, and distributing these funds to ensure pet owners in need can obtain proper veterinary care. We strongly believe that the companionship of healthy pets enhances the lives of people in need.

Pet owners seeking financial assistance are required to have their veterinarian or veterinary clinic contact the foundation to request funds. Direct requests from pet owners are not considered and require the veterinary service to submit the request on the pet owners behalf.

Pet owners must demonstrate financial need at the time that the veterinary care and medical services are or were required. We do not provide funding directly to pet owners and cannot accept requests that are not received from a veterinarian or clinic directly.
