Between 1998 and late 2014 IMOM saved or improved the quality of life for almost 5000 companion animals. In addition to the one time help we were able to offer through the generosity of our supporters, we were also able to sponsor hundreds of pets with chronic illnesses.

The Pet Fund
The Pet FundThe purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost.
Thousands of animals are sent to shelters and euthanized each year, many because of treatable medical conditions. While the law regards companion animals as property, The Pet Fund regards these animals instead as family members who do not qualify for human medical insurance. Pet insurance programs are available, but often even these programs cannot cover the total cost of necessary medical care. Free spay and neuter clinics as well as vaccination clinics are common, but these are largely the only free or low cost veterinary services available. The Pet Fund seeks to bridge this gap to make companion animal medical care available to all who need it.
