Companions in Crisis

As an organization, FETCH a Cure has made it its goal to earmark a portion of its funds to provide financial assistance for the cancer treatment and care of affected companions whose families are unable to financially provide for their pet. With the aid of FETCH a Cure’s Companions in Crisis Board, specific applicant criteria has been established and it is this criteria by which funds are allocated. As part of the Companions in Crisis program each applicant must apply for and fill out an application in order to be considered for financial aid.


In order to be considered for approval, all applicants must live in the state of Virginia and the pet in need must have a confirmed diagnosis of cancer prior to FETCH a Cure’s receipt of the application. Certain exceptions may be considered for a feline diagnosis. Whether it is through financial support or other resources FETCH a Cure’s Companions in Crisis program hopes to providing pet owners with a sense of hope. It is important to remember that every life is a gift, and whether it is two months or two years, having the additional time to spend with one of your best friends is something to be treasured.
