Helpful Resources

Financial Assistance

To apply for financial assistance through our Nandi Wishcamper Medical Assistance Fund, please fill out the application form here.  In order to process your application, we also need an estimate or invoice from the treating veterinarian before we can determine any contributions. Invoices/estimates can be emailed to, dropped off in person at the shelter or mailed.  Please note that we are only able to submit financial assistance to veterinarians; we are not able to reimburse individuals at this time.  Also, please be aware that we have very limited funding and are often limited to contributing to pets residing in or near the Missoula area.

Financial Assistance for senior dogs in our community is supported by The Grey Muzzle Organization.
