HOPE Funds

HOPE Funds program offers financial assistance for income-qualified pet owners whose pet is suffering from an immediately life- threatening condition. You do not need to be an existing Banfield Pet Hospital to apply for HOPE Funds, but treatment will need to be done at a Banfield Pet Hospital. Due to the high demand for assistance, not everyone who applies for HOPE Funds will be approved, and the entire cost of your pet’s treatment will not be covered. All applications submitted must be reviewed for both medical and financial eligibility.

Please contact your local Banfield Pet Hospital for more information and eligibility. Visit Banfield.com for locations near you.

This grant enables global volunteer work that supports Mars Petcare’s purpose of A Better World for Pets.

PLEASE NOTE: Applications will be reviewed within 7 days and notification on the status on the application will be determined within that time frame. Additionally, if required materials are not included, your application will not be considered for funding.
