Companion Cat Veterinary Care Assistance

“From the deepest place in my heart, I thank you for providing for Malaika’s veterinary care when she was ill.  She is now 100% better. I don’t care to think about what I would have done without your help.” – Karen, Santa Fe

Who We Help

If you have a cat permanently in your care as your lifelong companion pet and need financial help to get minor, non‐emergency veterinary care, we may be able to help.  To start the process, simply call us during our weekday business hours to fill out a brief telephone application.

Application Process

The telephone application is the same as for our spay/neuter voucher program, but we process it while you are on the phone and, if you are eligible, we’ll ask you to complete the application by texting us a photo (1) of your New Mexico food stamp eligibility notice or EBT card and (2) a photo of your cat.

Covered Services

Examples of covered services (not to exceed $300) include:

Wellness Services

If the covered services (above) total less than $300, any remaining balance may be applied to a vaccination for rabies and/or FVRCP (if the cat is healthy enough) and a nail trim.

Excluded Services

Major veterinary work, wellness only or chronic care services. Examples include:

Caregiver Eligibility

To qualify you must meet all of the eligibility requirements of our spay/neuter program and – in addition – the head of the household must be a New Mexico food stamp recipient.  And you or anyone in your household may not have sought veterinary help from us within the last 12 months.

Cat Eligibility

Your cats must meet all the eligibility requirements of our spay/neuter program and – in addition ‐ already be sterilized or be at a clinic redeeming one of our spay/neuter vouchers at the same time the health issue is treated.


Caregiver and Clinic use of our vouchers is governed by these guidelines which are subject to change without notice.  Our liability is limited solely to payment for the work as provided on the Veterinary Care Voucher.
