Silver Paws is a veterinary assistance program intended to help low-income seniors with health care for their animal companions. The program is available to qualifying seniors who are residents of Rohnert Park and Cotati. Funds can be used for veterinary expenses that are beyond the limits of their income, including, but not limited to: office procedures, annual wellness checks, dentistry, diagnostics, and surgery. The program does not provide ongoing care for an animal suffering from a terminal illness.
If you are a senior who has been putting off veterinarian visits essential to your pet’s health due to financial reasons (or you know of a senior who needs help), please call the Animal Shelter League of Rohnert Park at 707-523-9420 for more details and a referral to local veterinarians participating in the program.
Approval must be granted prior to services being rendered. We cannot reimburse for vet care already provided. The message line is monitored by volunteers so call backs can take a couple of days. This program is not intended for emergencies!
