Dear Veterinary Clinic:

I have applied to the Riedel and Cody Fund to ask for a grant to pay for my pet’s cancer treatments. The Riedel and Cody Fund is a non-profit organized to provide funding for owners who have a pet diagnosed with cancer and cannot afford to pay for the treatment. All grant requests are reviewed based on established criteria within our organization which includes personal/financial as well as medical considerations.

(1) We do not fund for treatments or surgeries which have already occurred.

(2) We do not pay for surgeries or procedures to determine if cancer is the diagnosis.
