Animal Care Assistance For Families in Need

aka THF   |   Powder Springs, GA   |  www.tommysholidayfund.org

Mission

To assist families and their companion animals, in Metro Atlanta, who need emergency or specialty care. Our primary goal is to give families, in financial crisis an alternative to euthanasia when their pet has a treatable, yet life-threatening condition. We will work with their preferred vet or one of our partnering clinics to offset or, when qualifying, completely cover the costs of emergency and specialty care. Ultimately a frontline to preventing needless euthanasia and keeping animals out of shelters and rescues in the first place.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of Tommy's Holiday Fund is to make companion animal medical care available to all who need it, but are unable to afford it and save their pets.

Providing direct financial assistance to families and animals in need; as well as, working with local veterinary practice to develop lower cost well visit programs, in order to increase early detection of severe medical problems, lower costs for emergency procedures, and educate the local community on proper pet care, needs and awareness.

Grass roots fund raising, direct negotiations with veterinary clinics, and community education.

As we save a new life and keep a companion animal together with the family they belong with we know we are what we set out to do. We strive to grow our programs so that we are able to impact more lives. The next step for us is to start up affordable well visit programs with our partnering clinics, in order to give under served Metro Atlanta Families access to affordable well pet care and keep them from needing our emergency and specialty services unnecessarily. After that disaster response and ultimately our own clinic one day, we hope.
