www.nysave.org. With the help of the VMA of NYC, this organization was founded in 1998 by members of the VMA to help pet owners in financial difficulties get the emergency veterinary care they needed. Pet owners can apply directly to NY SAVE for assistance. Veterinarians participating in the program also offer a discounted rate. The maximum annual limit for veterinary per household is $1,500. This is a great program, still endorsed by the VMA of NYC, and can use all of your participation. NY SAVE is always looking for new donors, so if you know of any clients who would like to donate, please contact George Korin at email@example.com.
www.vet-i-care.org. This organization helps pay for specialty and emergency care in New Jersey and surrounding areas.

Veterinarians do not need to be pre-registered with the program but will need to accept payment from them.
ASPCA Partners in Caring grant program. This program covers emergency medical care by working with partner veterinary clinics to provide the services.
