Financial Aid for Veterinary Emergencies

JCHS has a limited amount of money available to help with medical emergencies (not routine medical care). It is distributed on a case-by-case basis.

Our goal is to help individuals in immediate need provide emergency care for their own animal or one they have rescued. Some questions we take into consideration when evaluating each situation include:

 is the animal’s life in immediate danger?

 how does the problem present itself?

 how is the animal behaving right now?

 when was the last time the animal ate/drank?

 how much are you (the caregiver) able to help out financially or otherwise? Every little bit counts.

We may pay a dollar amount or a percentage of the bill (as a grant or a loan) at the veterinary clinic of our choice.

There are two 24-hour emergency vetmed clinics in our area:

Eastern Iowa Veterinary Specialty Center319-841-5161
755 Capital Drive, SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404 (map)


Emergency Veterinary Service of Iowa City
319-338-3605
3030 Northgate Drive
Iowa City, IA 52245 (map)

There are a number of organizations available online that make grants for veterinary emergencies. Check the list on our Resources & Links page.

Help with Shelter Reclaim Fees

We have a limited amount of money available to help individuals who cannot pay the reclaim fee to get their animal out of the shelter.

Staff at the Iowa City Animal Care & Adoption Center are authorized to refer eligible caregivers to us.

Money may be offered in the form of a grant or a loan.

JCHS Loan Closet

We maintain a loan closet of animal-oriented equipment such as various types of litter boxes, pet taxis, wire and fiberglass dog crates, and kitty havens. The equipment may be checked out on a short-term basis. A refundable deposit is required.
