The Buddy Foundation of Maryland provides need-based financial assistance for the benefit of dog owners. When serious veterinary care is needed beyond routine procedures, including treatment, surgery, and medications, the Buddy Foundation of Maryland offers assistance. Depending on the level of funding available and the urgency of the necessary treatment, TBF of Maryland will determine whether or not to pay for all or a portion of the animal’s care. Please note that our maximum disbursement to any one individual is $1,000. The Buddy Foundation of Maryland will use the following criteria to determine whether funds will be disbursed for a dog’s care:
The Buddy Foundation of Maryland will consider funding requests for spayed or neutered domestic canine companion animals. We will NOT cover farm animals, animals owned by breeders, or animals used for research or commercial purposes of any kind. If applicants to The Buddy Foundation of Maryland are discovered to be using animals for illegal fighting purposes, we will provide the information to law enforcement agencies and assist in the prosecution of these illegal activities.
