With COVID-19 and the stay-at-home orders, we are seeing a dramatic increase in demand for our programs. People are unable to work and are having to make difficult decisions about care for their pets. We just launched PAWS Covid Pet Fund to help people in need during this crisis.

The fund will cover:

  • Free Spay/Neuter vouchers
  • Financial assistance for veterinary bills: this will now cover all vet bills including vaccinations and we will have more flexibility on how much money we can offer people
  • Pet Food vouchers to help pay for pet food and supplies: These will be accepted at a variety of local pet stores and grocery stores in Jackson, Teton Valley and Star Valley.
  • Emergency pet boarding: If you fall ill and need hospitalization or cannot otherwise care for your pets, PAWS will help pay for boarding at all the local boarding facilities.

PAWS of Jackson Hole is Keeping pets and their people together in this crisis. If you need any other assistance, please don’t hesitate to call PAWS or email [email protected]

The COVID Pet Fund is funded by generous donations. A PAWS representative will call you after receiving your application to discuss your assistance options.
