We have currently paused the acceptance of new applications for this program. We are however continuing to accept donations to continue this worthwhile program. Thanks to the generosity of those who have donated, this program has helped many area animals since its inception at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020! We look forward to helping more pets in Orange County, NC!If you would like to donate to help reinstate this program, please consider making a monetary donation. You can drop by our shelter or mail a check made out to Orange County Animal Services (1601 Eubanks Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27516) and specify that the funds go towards the "Veterinary Care Assistance Program."
In order to keep more pets in their homes with their families, we are asking for donations to this fund that can assist Orange County residents with non-emergency veterinary expenses. In general, we see many heartbreaking pet surrenders to our shelter as a result of owners not being able to afford to properly care for their pets when they need medical attention.
