This program covers emergency medical care by working with partner veterinary clinics to provide the services. Veterinarians can refer clients to the program or clients may apply directly to the ASPCA, who will then help them find a partner clinic in their area. Partner clinics offer their services at a discounted rate. If you are interested in becoming a partner, contact the ASPCA at cia@aspca.org.
