Ginger’s Fund

Emergency Medical Care for Needy Pets

Ginger Wiener

Ginger’s Fund provided financial assistance for emergency medical treatment for animals whose owners cannot afford to pay all or part of the necessary veterinarian services. It is currently not an active program.

The fund was established by Marsha and Sol Wiener in memory of their beloved golden retriever, Ginger. Money from Ginger’s Fund is allocated at the discretion of local participating veterinarians. Owners must reside in Jefferson County and animals helped through the program must be spayed or neutered. The vets determine the amount of funding needed at the time of the emergency and bill us directly for a portion of the cost. At this time, we are unable to continue to fund these services.
