AHF/SCVMA Angel Fund

Apply through your veterinarian in Southern, CA

If you live in Southern California and a veterinarian in the practice is a member of the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association:

Angel Fund grants are provided through veterinarians who are participating Southern California Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA) members who are enrolled in the Angel Fund Program. Beacause funds are limited for each hospital, most participating veterinarians limit Angel Fund Grants to existing clients. To enroll in the Angel Fund Program or to apply for a grant, YOUR VETERINARIAN should contact the SCVMA.

The veterinarians are not obligated to apply for a grant. It is totally their own decision and, frequently, they reserve their appointed funds for existing clients.

If you are a resident of Southern California we suggest you contact your veterinarian to find out if someone in the practice is a member of the SCVMA and if they are enrolled in the Angel Fund Program. If so, you may qualify for an Angel Fund Grant.

Remember that, the veterinarian must take the first step by applying for a grant by contacting the SCVMA.

To find out if your veterinarian is a member of the SCVMA go to: www.scvma.org/find-a-vet/
