Partners for Change

By December 15, 2021 No Comments

The Little Angels Project is partnering with many organizations to help seniors, low-income, veterans, and the homeless with pets.

Before the beginning of the pandemic, Little Angels Project saw a clear need amongst pet owners who wanted to keep their pets but were faced with bills they could not afford. The goal of our program is to reduce owner surrender for medical needs.

Our organization provides free and low-cost Veterinary to help pet owners retain their animals and save them from euthanasia or surrender to a shelter or rescue.

The patient is evaluated for their medical need (dental, wound care, surgery, etc.) then the cost of care is estimated. The client completes a financial need form to determine their ability to pay.

Our services are free to all who qualify.

We move locations in Los Angeles and Ventura County to accommodate all areas in need. Pets must register to be seen in advance.

What does the exam include?

Our veterinarian will ask questions about the pet’s diet, exercise, thirst, breathing, behavior, habits, elimination patterns (i.e., bowel movements and urination), lifestyle, and general health. Our vet will also check the pet’s teeth and gums, check their weight, listen to their heart and lungs, check eyes, ears, and coat for any signs of illness or chronic conditions.

Wellness checks include a thorough physical evaluation of the pet, new and booster vaccinations, flea prevention if needed, and microchips if desired.

Each clinic costs between $2500 and $3000 to operate including veterinary professionals (if non-voluntary) and medications, flea treatment, microchips provided. We average two clinics a month and see 30 animals at each wellness event. In some areas, we have seen as many as 50 patients and brought in two doctors to provide care.
