Mend-A-Friend Fund

Oklahoma Alliance for Animals’ Mend-A-Friend Animal Fund was established to help Oklahoma pet owners in need of financial assistance for emergency veterinary care.

The Mend-A-Friend fund operates with limited monies, and the funds are used in the most responsible way possible for cases with a good prognosis for recovery.

In order to receive any possible financial assistance from OAA, you must have applied for Care Credit, Scratch Pay and Red Rover. Proof of application and response is required.

Typically, each Mend-A-Friend case is limited to no more than $300 for one pet. OAA reserves the right to deny or limit funding to anyone for any reason.

To inquire about assistance, email with screenshots of application and response from Care Credit, Scratch Pay and Red Rover, along with a detailed message about the pet’s emergency.

*Please note that OAA is not an emergency response organization. We are a nonprofit run mostly by volunteers. While we try to respond to every inquiry as quickly as we can, please know that it could take 24-48 hours to receive a response.

Helping Your Pet During a Veterinary Emergency

Veterinary care can be expensive. Here are some tips to finding funding for emergency veterinary visits.

  • Apply for Care Credit.
  • Apply for Scratch Pay.
  • Apply for Red Rover. Red Rover requires an estimated invoice for treatment from a veterinarian.
  • Ask friends or family to help with the cost.
  • Start a GoFundMe or another type of personal fundraiser on Facebook.
