The Ann Arbor Animal Hospital has a fund that helps to meet the needs of critically ill or injured animals whose human companions are experiencing a temporary financial crisis and are unable to meet those needs.

At the present time we are accepting donations to the fund. Our hope is that as the fund continues to grow we will be able to meet the needs of all the deserving animals who so desperately need our help. Until that point in time, it will be used only for true emergency cases.
