Financial Assistance Application

Guidelines for Applying for Assistance

The Little Angels Project wishes we were able to provide financial assistance to all applicants but unfortunately that is not possible. Our program has limited funding and at this time we must limit assistance to one individual or family to one time in a 6 month period. Applicants may apply again after this time frame but are not
guaranteed approval.

We do not provide financial assistance for general wellness care such as examinations, vaccines, flea prevention etc. If you are in need of these services you can apply for an appointment through our Wellness clinic program here.

LAP Help financial assistance program is dedicated to helping families who find themselves in a temporary financial crisis at the same time their pet requires life-saving treatment or life-sustaining medications. We are committed to ensuring we help maintain and strengthen the bond between pets and their families during times of unexpected financial crisis.

If approved funds will be donated directly to the facility providing treatment or medications. See qualification guidelines for aid below, proof of hardship must be submitted with the application.

The following is a list of the minimum documentation you are required to provide during the application phase:

  • Proof of Income or Proof of receiving government assistance. Acceptable documents such as IRS Tax return form-1040s, Recent Paycheck stubs, EDD, Medical, social security, or Calfresh documents for all adults in the household where the pet resides.
  • Proof of Identity, State issued License, Identity Cards, or Passports are all acceptable.
  • Proof of the hardship you claim, if your income is within the Federal Poverty Guidelines (see chart) or Debt to income ratio.
  • Proof that you own the animal in need, this can be determined with adoption/purchase Papers, vet records, or Rabies certificates for two consecutive “terms”

We are a US non-profit only. Requests from outside the United States will be automatically denied. Our finances change daily. We are actively fundraising nationwide, however, if we do not take in donations, we cannot offer assistance.

If your request does not meet our Standard Guidelines or if we do not have sufficient funds available to “bridge the gap,” you will receive an immediate and automated denial email. Our guidelines are based on three sets of criteria – our Responsible Pet Owner Standards, the pet’s crisis, and your household financials. As a result, we need you to answer every question honestly and completely. Please do not elaborate on the fields for specific questions. Use the Description area to provide any additional information you wish.

At this time we are unable to provide funds towards dental care.

We are not equipped to handle emergency life-or-death situations. We recommend contacting the nearest veterinarian in these cases.
