What should you do to prepare for your pet in the event that you or a family member contracts COVID-19?

Need financial help? Look into these ideas below on raising money for your pet or pets in need:

  • Ask if your veterinarian accepts Care Credit, a credit card specifically for health care expenses, including veterinary care for your pet.

  • Try a fundraising platform such as GoFundMe, which enables you to create a personal fundraising page.

  • Consider Waggle, a pet-dedicated crowdfunding solution that channels funds directly to verified veterinarians for a pet’s care.

  • Look into pet insurance companies such as Nationwide and Eusoh that will benefit your pets in the long run if they need any additional medical care.
