Why give to the Good Samaritan Fund?
Surgery can be expensive, especially without pet insurance. Sometimes clients cannot afford complex treatments required to help their beloved pets. Fortunately, Ryan Hospital has a Good Samaritan Fund that can help offset some of those costs for pets with a good prognosis, who qualify for assistance under the guidelines of the Fund.
"These funds allow pet owners who have taken good care of their pets and lack the resources the opportunity to get some financial help," said Sally Powell, Director of Operations for Ryan Hospital. "While this is a wonderful program for responsible pet owners it is also a huge morale booster for the clinical staff who often have to humanely euthanize animals that would otherwise have a chance at a good life. "
As clinicians who enter the field of veterinary medicine to care for pets, it can be devastating on a personal and professional level to have to humanely euthanize animals that would otherwise have a chance at a good life. The impact of the Good Samaritan Fund on everyone involved is broad and meaningful.
