2023 Fund-A-Need - The Hutch Fund

The Hutch Fund was established by Helping Strays many years ago as a way to help individuals in our community keep their cherished pets even when facing financial hardship. No one should be faced with giving up a loving member of their family as a result of short-term financial challenges. In fact, challenging times are when we need the love of our pets the most. Sometimes these challenges arise from unexpected medical bills, loss of a job, or even temporary homelessness. Regardless of the situation, this fund allows us to work alongside these families to provide short-term veterinary care for their pets, keeping them at home where they belong.
