Have you ever wondered exactly how the Animal Care Foundation works? Here is your chance! The logistics, qualifications, and support we offer are described below!
The Animal Care Foundation is a 501.c.3 nonprofit that works to ensure that our Minnesotan neighbors who are disabled or elderly can access necessary veterinary care for their family pet even if they cannot afford it. Our clients must be:
If an applicant qualifies, they are then matched to one of our generous member clinics and can access financial support for any necessary veterinary care their pet needs. The support offered is:
It is that time of year when many of us are getting loved ones gifts. We at ACF hope that you don’t forget your furry (or scaly) loved ones and want to share some easy homemade gifts you can share with your (or someone else's) pet!
Rodent, Bird, and Reptile Toys:
Many of the above cat and dog toys can also serve as reptile, rodent and bird toys.
You can find some specific Reptile toy recommendations on the Reptiles Direct page here.
Check out The Spruce Pets article by Lianne McLeod, DVM for some great rodent toys. (Though this is targeted to rats, many would be great for rabbits, mice, hamsters, gerbils, and more!)
Bird toy ideas can be found at Exotic Direct here. These are targeted to parrots, so size down if you have smaller birds!
For Laurel, having Prince in her life has helped her feel less lonely. Prince depends on her, which provides Laurel with a reason to push through those hard times. Caring for him has given her life more meaning. When Prince was adopted he was dangerously underweight due to an undiagnosed, chronic gastrointestinal condition. After spending her stimulus check on getting him care, his mom was out of funds and needed help accessing the continued care he needed to remain healthy. Because of donors like you, ACF was able to step in and help provide this continued care! Prince is now at a healthy weight and a very happy kitty!
