In the instance of partial aid, the owner WILL BE responsible for the remaining balance due to their veterinarian. This decision will be based on several factors such as urgency, financial need, available funding and eligibility. Completion of application is not a guarantee of aid; applicant will be notified of funding status by email within 24-48 hours depending on completion status. The amount of funding approved is subject to change at any time prior to payment. Incomplete applications will not be considered *
