Financial Aid & Grants

Please fill out the following form completely if you would like to be considered for a financial aid loan and/or grant.

We ask that everyone applying for financial aid understand that our organization relies on the kindness and generosity of our supporters and business partners, and we ask that everyone check their hearts before requesting financial assistance. Owning and caring for a pet is very rewarding, but is also a great responsibility. Please consider all costs involved (including food, shots, preventative medicine, emergency situations and your time) before adopting or taking in a pet.

If you have any questions regarding this form or for more information, please call 608.520.0177 or email

Thank you!

The Buddy of Mine Board of Directors review applications as quickly as possible once they are received and will call the number provided above on this form to inform you of our decision. Our grants are normally $50, but each case is looked at individually. We offer 6-month no interest/fee loans with a signed contract. Buddy of Mine may recommend a vet clinic based on the fee structure we have worked out with our clinics, but will make every effort to accommodate your pet’s normal doctor.

The decisions made are at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors and will be made based on the best interest of the pets and the organization. Typically we will help provide one spay or neuter per family and consider financial help once per year per family. Owning or rescuing a pet is rewarding and commendable, but also comes with responsibilities, including the financial needs to take care of your pet(s).

Thank you for your application. A member of the Board of Directors will be in touch with you shortly.
