ACAP - Animal Care Assistance Program ​(ACAP). This program’s primary goal is to help low income or disadvantaged Virginia residents' pets with veterinary needs in an effort to prevent unnecessary suffering of their pets. We try to reduce the number of owners surrendering their pets to shelters due to common problems that may be resolved with intervention and assistance. Flea/tick medications, dewormers, and heartworm preventative medications are also provided. Pet owners must go to our website to complete our application for assistance.

Banfield Charitable Trusts - While the Banfield Foundation does not provide direct support to individual pet owners, we want to provide information about other nonprofit organizations that do. If you are a pet owner struggling to find veterinary care and pet food resources, review this list of national veterinary care resources and local resources by state.

Brown Dog Foundation - Brown Dog Foundation is a very small organization that receives more than 4,000 requests for assistance each year. Unfortunately, we say "no" much more frequently than we can say "yes". Because of the high volume of requests, our resources are allocated first to those pets whose life is in danger. We encourage you to apply as, in addition to giving cash, we also offer guidance and referral to lower cost alternatives.
