Welcome to Scout's Fund
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to honor the special bond between pet owners and their dogs by providing crucial medical care to avoid euthanasia, abandonment or surrender.
Working with veterinarians in midcoast Maine, we identify dog owners who are facing financial hardship and are unable to provide medical care to significantly extend and create a high quality of life for their pet.
How It Works
Pet owners must reside in midcoast Maine (Lincoln, Knox or Waldo county) and have a Scout's Fund Network Member as their primary pet care provider.
Funding goes directly to the participating veterinarian providing the care and treatment.
Pet owners must share in the cost of medical services at some level.
Participating veterinarian must complete an assistance application to be reviewed by Scout's Fund veterinary advisory committee.
The application review process may take several weeks.
Pet owners must pledge to follow the recommendations of the veterinarian for continued and future care of their dog.
Please note that financial assistance is not currently available for emergency care.
"Somethings just fill your heart without trying."
Wendy Jablow founded Scout's Fund in 2021 to honor the profound connection she shared with her beloved canine companion, Scout. At a young age, Scout faced significant health challenges and Wendy was grateful and relieved to be able to afford the extensive veterinary care that allowed her and Scout to be together for as long as possible. Her wish is to provide that opportunity to other dog owners.
