PRERI Emergency Veterinary Fund assists horse owners that can not pay for veterinary care due to financial hardship. The horse owner can give back to our fund by volunteering ours or paying for care on a sliding scale due to their financial circumstances.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Emergency Veterinary Fund is the 3rd largest expense to PRERI and is where your donations are used to care for the horses and other animals in need. The average cost to save one coliced horse is between $1500 to $4800 without surgery veterinary care, IV solutions, feed, medications, and 24 hr care. This average cost does not include additional surgery where costs can soar.

Program Short-Term Success:

Emergency Veterinary Fund has successfully helped many horse owners and many horses in need of help. PRERI without compromising quality of care continues to aim to expand this program efficiently on an annual basis and to utilize donated funds wisely to insure the horses and small animals have a continued good quality of life.
