Passion 4 Paws Program
To provide financial spay/neuter and other vetting assistance for low income residents that need help to keep their animals in the home. This is a funded program (raised thru donations and grants) that covers services for pets (dogs and cats) to be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped, and registration. This will also include post surgery pain meds. Under certain circumstances, CLASP will also hear cases made for emergency medical funds with a set limit of $200. Funds, if awarded, are paid directly to the vet.
How It Works
CLASP will partner with The Texas Coalition for Animal Protection (TCAP) and other partnering clinics to provide low cost services (spay/neuter, vaccinations, rabies, and micro chipping). Possibilities of low-cost heart worm testing and treatment may also be available. The cost of these services will be determined prior to any agreements between CLASP and the applicant. The application for said services must first be submitted through CLASP to determine if funding assistance requirements are met. This program applies to residents who already have animals in their homes and need vetting assistance to keep them. Residents needing assistance must apply to CLASP. The application can be provided to the client by: (1) downloading from our website at www.cowtownpets.org; (2) by email provided we have that info; or (3) by direct mail to home address. The completed client application can be submitted by email to email@example.com or mailed to CLASP, P.O. Box 8533, Fort Worth, TX 76124 for review / approval. Emergency medical requests should be sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Available appointment dates / times for said vetting must be coordinated between the client and the partnering vet clinic. The schedules for surgeries performed and how many animals can be seen each week will be determined by the clinics. CLASP may work with citizens on transportation to and from clinics when the need arises.
Once the applicant has been approved a vetting voucher will be provided with a list of clinics that have agreed to partner with CLASP for low cost vetting provided through the Passion4Paws program. As previously indicated, once an applicant is approved it is their responsibility to contact one of the partnering clinics to set an appointment.
The fee schedule between CLASP and the partnership clinics has been set for covered vetting. CLASP will continue to acquire funding from donors and/or grants to pay for all expenses needed for this project. These costs will include all prearranged clinic charges as stated earlier in this document.
CLASP believes that by assisting limited-income owners with spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and microchipping of their pets, the rate of euthanasia in the shelters will drop drastically due to the reduction in unwanted pet births and fees incurred when animals are picked up and held in city shelters. CLASP also believes that with vetting assistance and fewer unwanted litters there will be less owner-surrender animals. Additionally, with the service of microchipping provided for pets, more animals will be returned home. Emergency medical requests should be sent directly to email@example.com.
