Application Info

  • The Alice Fund limits the amount of assistance up to $500 per applicant annually.

  • Assistance will expire on December 31 the year in which it is received.

  • We require you and your cat live in Chattanooga, TN or surrounding area.

  • If funds are granted to you, we ask that you update us on your cat's progress and provide a photo of your cat to be used to chronicle our work helping cats.


Guidelines for Receiving Assistance

  • Good prognosis, if treated

  • Financial need

  • Some financial commitment from the owner toward treatment

  • Ability to comply with treatment recommendations

*** Due to an overwhelming need for assistance, the Alice Fund's priority is care for cats living in Hamilton County. Your county's humane educational society, animal shelter, or local veterinarian will be able to advise you on how to get the help you need.  Care Credit and other veterinary care financing may be an option. Low cost spay and neuter programs exist. We hope you find assistance in your community.
