The Bella Foundation was created to assist low-income, elderly, or disabled pet parents who were faced with unexpected veterinary bills. When someone is unable to pay for necessary medical attention for their pets, the attending veterinarian can contact us for assistance. If assistance is provided, we only ask that the pet owners give back 8 hours of volunteer service to an animal welfare organization of their choosing. We also spay/neuter all pets at no cost to the families.
Aside from our assistance program, we also serve our community through pet adoption. We work closely with municipal shelters in our area to bring at-risk pets into our foster-based adoption program. We do not have a physical shelter, so pets live full-time with foster families. All of our adoptable pets are spayed, neutered, fully vaccinated, given necessary tests and preventatives, and microchipped to ensure they get the best start at life in their forever homes.
We also provide low-cost vaccines and microchips to the public at bimonthly outreaches. We're so thankful for the support of the veterinary community in our area and have a great working relationship with several vets who help us facilitate these events. By keeping pets vaccinated and microchipped, we can help improve their lives and lower their chances of becoming lost or ill.
Nothing we do would be possible without the support of generous donors and the dedicated volunteers we work with every day! 100% of donations received go directly to animal care and are never used to fund employee salaries. With a minimal staff, an unpaid executive director, and limited overhead costs, supporters can be confident that their donations are being used to directly help animals in need.
