Funding Criteria

Not everyone who applies for help from the Jessie and Bandit Fund will receive it as the limited resources cannot meet the level of need. Hospital veterinarians will determine the recipients on a case-by-case basis according to fund resources and the patient’s situation. They will consider applicants meeting the following criteria:

  • The patient is being treated at Canada West Veterinary Specialists
  • The care must be critical to patient’s quality of life
  • The patient must have a reasonable prognosis
  • The owner(s) must have financial need
  • The owner(s) agree to pictures and video of their pets (pending a good outcome) being used on Canada West and third party websites, social media channels and other promotional materials for the Jessie + Bandit Animal Care Fund

Jessie + Bandit Animal Care Fund money recipients will never be asked to pay the money back. The Fund will continue to rely only on donations, not payments.
