Financial Aid 

In case of an emergency

Financial Aid

At Animal Samaritans, we know there is nothing scarier than when one of our furry family members is sick, especially if you don’t have enough money to pay for their care.

In addition to our already low-priced, non profit veterinary options, Animal Samaritans offers the following financial aid options to help those in need. Please call 760-343-3477 for more information.

Financial Aid Programs

Care Credit

Animal Samaritans is pleased to now offer Care Credit to our clients.

CareCredit knows pets are family too. That’s why they offer veterinary financing to help keep your most cherished family members in top shape.

Whether you use it to cover annual expenses like preventative care check-ups or for unexpected costs like pet prescriptions and house calls, the CareCredit healthcare credit card makes it easy to give your pets the care they need, when they need it.  This is a credit card option available to those who are qualified.


In the event that a pet owner is unable to pay for spay and neuter services, there may be the possibility of Animal Samaritans waiving a portion of the fees. Call to make your appointment and pre-qualify.  No qualifying on the day of your spay and neuter surgery.

Financial Stewardship

We know you have many choices when it comes to how to invest your philanthropic dollars, and Animal Samaritans takes seriously the stewardship of your investment in us.

The Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau recommends that nonprofits not spend more than 35 cents on the dollar of its budget on administration and fundraising.

At Animal Samaritans that number is, year over year, close to 10 cents on the dollar. That means the other 90 cents goes to our mission and our services.

That’s just one of the reasons that Animal Samaritans, for more than 4 decades, has been among Southern California’s most trusted animal welfare organizations.

pets. not profits

At our state-of-the-art veterinary clinics, we’re there to provide your animals with the highest quality care, not to make a profit.

Because of your support, we are expanding this mission to broader and more diverse communities.

12,000 Animals saved!

Our Adoption Alliance Rescue Program has saved the lives of more than 12,000 animals. And were just getting started. We work with the local shelters to place animals they do not have the resources or staff to handle.  Thanks to donations like yours, we do!
