Individuals given financial assistance for a stray pet must provide volunteer hours to SSLP or the rescue that takes over the care of that pet. The number of volunteer hours will be determined by the amount of monetary assistance given and an agreed upon amount prior to the transfer of funds. You will be required to donate 5 volunteer hours for every $100 of assistance. Potential volunteering could be handling adoptable pets at events, helping plan a fundraiser, volunteering at a fundraiser, selling SSLP merchandise similar to rescues, etc.
If you are the owner of a stray animal that SSLP has provided financial assistance for, you may be asked to reimburse or make payments to repay SSLP after emergency medical funding was provided to save the life of your pet. If it is found that you are unable to repay SSLP, you will be required to provide volunteer hours to SSLP at upcoming SSLP events or at an assisting rescue’s events. A “donation” payment plan can be arranged to work towards the repayment if an owner is unable to immediately cover the cost of repaying SSLP.
SSLP operates on a monthly budget of giving. If the money for that calendar month has already been paid, then we will have to deny requests that come in for the remainder of that month.
An individual or rescue can only receive financial assistance up to twice per calendar year.
