Many animals are surrendered to shelters due to medical issues that an owner cannot afford to treat, but many owners would keep their pets if they could. There is usually no option for low cost/free, full-service (incremental care) medicine, due to laws, vet associations and a lack of providers. The situation is also complicated by the lack of data to help target a solution to an affordable level. We'll discuss how to calculate a goal and fit a solution to your shelter's need.
