Good Samaritan Fund
For those who need it in our service area, the Good Sam Fund pays the first $50 of a veterinarian's fee, to have an injured stray dog or cat examined and possibly treated.
If the animal needs immediate medical attention, we allow for him or her to be taken to the nearest veterinarian. However, if the individual has the time, we would prefer the injured animal be taken to one of our participating veterinarians:
- Columbia Gorge Veterinary Clinic
- Tucker Road Animal Hospital
- Upper Valley Veterinary Clinic
Often this fund picks up where the Good Sam Fund leaves off. It makes some money available to help pay medical bills for a good tempered, adoptable canine who has a reasonable chance of finding a new home.
That can be very difficult to tell at times, because an injured animal will act differently than a well animal. Still, we will try our best, along with the veterinarian's advice, to make a good decision.
This fund can also be used by someone who has rescued a stray dog that is not injured, but upon further examination, has a treatable medical problem.
Unlike the Good Sam Fund, the veterinarian's office needs authorization from a PROD volunteer to bill us. Either the individual or someone from the veterinarian's office must call us to make arrangements for the necessary funds.

Unfortunately, PROD does not have money to help owners with their injured dogs or cats, but the following is a fund that helps people pay for the medical bills associated with their own pets.
