Traditionally, animals with extreme medical needs
who are taken in by animal control shelters are euthanized because
the funds needed to pay for extensive surgeries and other expensive
treatment just haven't been available. But many of these animals
would make wonderful, loving pets if only they had access to the
medical treatment they need. The Picasso Veterinary Fund was created
to give these animals the second chances they deserve. By paying
for medical treatment that otherwise would not be available to them,
the Fund is saving lives that in the past would have been lost.
These animals get the veterinary
care they need to get back on their feet, and then are put up
when they are healthy enough to be placed into a permanent home.
Since 2003, hundreds of dogs and cats
have received medical treatment paid for by the Fund.
