Cinema Veterinary Centre is now enrolled to be a part of The Angel Fund Program. This program helps families with proven hardships to get various emergency surgeries/treatment done, if they qualify.

CINEMA VETERINARY CENTRE now qualifies to participate in The Angel Fund grant program.  Below is detail of what this wonderful program is all about:

The Angel Fund (a continuation of the original Animal Health Care Fund) is a cooperative venture between the Animal Health Foundation (AHF) and the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association (SCVMA) and its members. The fund assists pet owners in Los Angeles and Orange County, California, with veterinary care when paying for care is challenging or impossible.

Eligibility for the Angel Fund

Eligibility criteria for assistance from the Angel Fund:

  • Hospitals—Veterinary hospitals in Southern California with either a full or non-voting SCVMA member on staff are eligible. Cinema Veterinary Centre has completed the annual enrollment form which is done prior to applying for funds.
  • Clients—To be eligible for an Angel Fund grant, a client must demonstrate financial hardship. The veterinary hospital is responsible for confirmation of eligibility.
  • Pets—To be eligible for an Angel Fund grant, pets must be spayed, neutered, or less than six months of age. If a surgical procedure is part of the treatment and there is no additional risk to the pet, spaying or neutering is mandatory. The client is financially responsible for this portion of the surgery.
  • Treatment—Covered care is only for non-elective medical and surgical procedures of sick or injured companion animals. Some procedures which do not qualify for funding include:
    • Routine physical examinations
    • Vaccinations
    • General prophylactic dental care
    • Spays and neuters
    • Caesarian sections
    • Infected uteruses

Funding Limits

Veterinary hospitals are eligible for a maximum of $500 for full voting members and $250 for non-voting members per calendar year for financial hardship cases. No family may receive more than the $500 or $250 and no pet may receive funds more than once in a calendar year.
