 The Mosby Foundation – NOT for emergency situations

http://www.themosbyfoundation.org/what.html

From the website –

“We are not equipped to respond on an emergency basis.
It is our requirement that all dogs we help be spayed/neutered prior to our providing financial assistance. In rare cases when physically possible, this can be done at the same time as the needed medical treatment IF the treating veterinarian will perform the sterilization at the same price as a low cost spay/neuter clinic.”
