Get Veterinary Assistance in Alabama!

If you need help with pet care in Alabama, you’re not alone. We’ve had many requests for information in this area. Fortunately, we’ve been able to find a few agencies that can help.

There are several agencies that assist with pet care costs. We’ve done our best to organize them by type.

Don’t forget to check out our nationwide list of 24 agencies that help pets in all states!

Need help with spay or neuter costs?

There are many agencies that offer low-cost spay and neuter services for low income families.

Alabama Animal Adoption Society (Greater Birmingham)

The Adoption Society believes that the number of abandoned animals can be reduced through responsible spaying and neutering. Therefore, they provide low-cost certificates to help with the expense of these surgeries.

In order to do this, you should make an appointment with one of their participating veterinaries in the Greater Birmingham area. You should speak with the veterinarian and tell them you want to use a certificate from the Alabama Animal Adoption Society before you actually buy the certificate. This gives you the chance to make sure you know what to expect through the process.

You can find more information on the Alabama Animal Adoption Society page. 

Alabama Animal Alliance (Montgomery)

The Alabama Animal Alliance offers a “Fix Your Pet for $10” program. They also offer a transport program for residents who live in Lee County. See the details on the Alabama Animal Alliance website. 

Friends of Cats and Dogs Foundation (Birmingham)

This agency distributes low-cost spay and neuter certificates to anyone who needs them. The certificate only covers the actual surgery and you may be required to pay for additional items or services.

Mobile SPCA (Mobile)

The Mobile SPCA offers a $10 off coupon for spay and neuter surgeries at their preferred veterinarians.

Shelby Humane (Columbiana)

You may qualify for completely free spay and neuter surgeries! You can apply for free or low cost service on their website here. 

They also offer at least six low cost veterinary clinics each year that also offer vaccinations and micro-chipping for those who can’t afford regular veterinary care.

Spay / Neuter Action Project (Madison County & Huntsville)

If you live in Huntsville or Madison County, you can fix your pet for just $5 if you qualify. In order to qualify, you must receive Medicaid, WIC, EBT, Social Security Disability or have an annual income of $35,000 or less. You will need to call one of their approved vets and ask for a $5 appointment. You can find the list on their website.

Need help with other veterinary costs?

This part gets a little tricky. Some assistance providers have been overwhelmed with requests for help and therefore don’t provide any useful information about their services. If you are seeking help from these agencies, it may require additional assistance.

AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund 

This fund does not provide funding directly to individuals. It is only provided to veterinarians… and because of the number of requests they receive, they do not tell anyone who their enrolled veterinarians are.

This agency specifically helps disabled veterans who need service animals, survivors of domestic violence, low income seniors and Good Samaritans who rescue animals.  More info here.

If you need help from this agency, you could try contacting your veterinarian (and others in your area) to see if they are members. They will need to be enrolled in order to apply for assistance on your behalf.

Need help with pet care costs after a disaster?

Disasters can cause unexpected veterinary expenses. Fortunately, we’ve found help.

Alabama Veterinary Medical Foundation 

The ALVMF Disaster Response Fund offers assistance with out-of-pocket veterinary expenses after a major storm or disaster. They also provide mobile animal sheltering units as part of their relief services.

Hi Jessica. If the above resources aren't helpful in your case, it may be worth calling 211 or your local Humane Society to see if either knows about additional programs in your area for help with vet bills.
