About the Campaign

Imagine a full-service, non-profit vet clinic

Now imagine the clinic helps you cover your bill, when you can’t afford some or all of cost!

Then imagine helping emergency cases, when animals have no where else to go!

Together, we can make that happen!

A non-profit animal welfare organization

  • Founded in 2016, to help sick or injured animals obtain critical medical care when their owners cannot afford it.
  • Funds are raised on our crowdfunding website, shown here.
  • We have paid over $1.6 million for the essential medical care of more than 1,100 pets.
  • In 2021, we opened a once-a-week, low cost spay & neuter clinic.
  • We have spayed or neutered more than 2,800 dogs and cats, repaired 30 hernias, removed 27 masses, and vaccinated over 450 pets.
  • The clinic is self-sustaining.


Urgent Need to Expand

  • Crowdfunding is an effective fundraising method; however, it has one significant limitation, it takes time to raise the vital funds.
  • In emergencies, when a pet’s condition demands immediate care, time is the one thing these pets do not have.
  • Pets needing immediate care are forced to endure their painful condition until all funds are raised.
  • Delays in treatment may cause secondary complications.
  • Sometimes care may come too late.

The Perfect Solution

  • Replace our existing spay & neuter clinic with a full-service veterinary clinic.
  • A clinic capable of providing a broad and diverse range of quality veterinary care.
  • With a full-service veterinary clinic, we can provide essential veterinary care, when that care is needed, without having to wait until the funds are raised.


  • Eliminating delays in treatment provides significant benefits to all pets, especially in emergencies.
  • Providing care when care is needed, yields the best possible medical outcome, and dramatically reduces the time the pet suffers.
  • Offers financially disadvantaged pets’ better access to essential medical care.
  • By owning a full-service veterinary clinic, we control costs, allowing us to offer the lowest possible prices. Helping more pets per dollar.

Request for Donor Support to Develop Non-Profit Full-Service Clinic

  • We have already leased the property for the new clinic.
  • Photograph below shows our existing spay & neuter clinic (in white) while outlining the dimensions of the new clinic in red. The adjacent building is a human clinic.

We need $1.1 million to complete the project

  • $600,000 to purchase 4 used mobile homes (60’ X 12’) which will be modified and combined to create our new 2880 sq ft. modular surgical clinic. See below.
  • Another $25,000 for utility hookup and site preparation.
  • And finally, $475,000 to purchase diagnostic machines, surgical equipment, and kennels.
  • Free Animal Doctor is contributing up to $200,000 in reserve funds toward risk mitigation during initial years of operation to ensure a successful start.
  • Once construction begins, the clinic should be completed within 4-5 months and operational shortly thereafter.
  • During the first year, we expect to provide essential medical care to 600 pets in addition to offering spay & neuter services.


This integrated crowdfunding and pet care delivery model is a social innovation and will provide more pets with broader medical services in a more timely and cost-effective manner. Once we have shown this model viable, we will expand, beginning in southern California.

    Enjoyed your interview Ryan. I hope it grew your base of donors. I still have 15 pups of my own but really appreciate what you and Sam do. Here’s to reaching your goal for the clinic. I emailed many of my friends and hope they Dontae too.

    Ryan and the amazing crew at FAD helped me when I needed surgery for my surrendered Bulldog Maxx. I wasn’t able to afford his surgery and the vet I had taken him to advised to put him down. I didn’t want to give up and reached out to FAD, and they began a campaign for my beautiful Maxx and we managed to get his tumor removed and save his front leg. I will forever be grateful for the support I received and I’m just paying it forward. I know many donors gave to help me and I’m doing the same.

    This is such an amazing service! There was a time I couldn’t afford to put my sweet Pittie down because he was having neurological problems. I had to borrow it from my friend and pay her back.

    This will help so many animals and people.
