Social service agencies and professionals play an integral role in the AlignCare system by identifying eligible families needing veterinary care.

Families are referred to AlignCare when a need for veterinary care is expressed to the social service agency and eligibility requirements are met. AlignCare eligibility requirements include: 

  • Bonded Family – The family views the pet as a family member and has reported feeling stressed over not being able to afford veterinary services.  
  • Need for assistance – The family is income-eligible as evidenced by currently receiving public assistance that includes, but is not limited to, Cash Assistance, SNAP, SSI, WIC, Medicaid, and/or Section 8 Housing (HUD, KCDK).   
  • Willingness to partner – The family must be willing to work with the Veterinary Social Work Coordinator and the veterinary service provider.
