Emergency Veterinary Care

Case managers are available to take new cases M-F 9am – 3pm PST.

If your pet experiences illness or injury, please call us. 775-841-7463.  One of our Case Managers will conduct an interview to see if you and your pet qualify for assistance through our Emergency Vet Care Program. If you are eligible, the Case Manager will approve an exam and help you make an appointment for your pet at a local hospital or clinic. While there is no charge to you, we appreciate any payment towards the invoice made to the hospital at the time of the visit.
We do not take new emergency calls after hours or on weekends. Leave a message and a case manager will return your call the next business day. We have case managers working remotely and may be calling you back from a private number, so be sure to answer your phone. If your emergency cannot wait, please reach out to other organizations listed on our State and National resources pages.

Other Resources

When Feeding Pets of the Homeless® cannot help, we will direct you to one of the many other organizations that may be able to help with your individual needs. Many organizations have specific missions and criteria that need to be met to qualify. Some resources are specific to breed. Local animal shelters or local chapters of the Humane Society may also be able to help, or know of other organizations local to you. Many SPCA’s offer low cost or free spay/neutering and vaccines.

A man has been homeless for the past 10 years. He is currently in a shelter, disabled and pending disability. At this time, he is receiving food stamps. He reached out to Feeding Pets of the Homeless for his male 3-month-old old French Bulldog named Blue. Blue was bleeding from his bottom when he would have a bowel movement.He shared he adopted Blue a few weeks ago from a shelter. At the time of adoption, the owner was told that the dog had a prolapsed rectum that was stitched and would not need surgery or further care on it. However, when Blue’s owner called the rescue to try and speak with a tech or someone that might know the situation, he was told that there was nothing they could assist with. Feeding Pets of the Homeless completed an intake when he called and homeless verification was provided. Our case manager found a partner veterinary hospital where we approved an exam. After being seen by the veterinarian, it was determined that Blue needs surgery to repair the prolapsed rectum. Blue will need to wait about 2 weeks for surgery to clear up an infection first.Feeding Pets of the Homeless contributed $330 for his initial exam, medications, fluids and fecal test.$1,600 has been approved for his surgery in 2 weeks. We would like to wish Blue a speedy recovery. ... See MoreSee Less
