As funds are available and requests are made within the foundation's guideline limits, The Acme Foundation will provide monetary support to qualified low income senior citizens and the disabled in Lake County, California for the treatment of their seriously ill cats and dogs. Due to limited funds The Acme Foundation works with Clearlake Veterinary Clinic only. Thus, the pet must receive treatment by a Clearlake Veterinary Clinic staff veterinarian to potentially qualify for an Acme Foundation grant.
100% of all net proceeds are awarded to qualified grant recipients. All volunteers give their time and resources. There is no paid staff or Board.
If the pet is diagnosed as seriously ill, has a good prognosis of survival by a Clearlake Veterinary Clinic staff veterinarian, and the pet owner is considered by The Acme Foundation's guidelines as being low income, a senior citizen or disabled then an Acme Foundation application can be completed and submitted, at Clearlake Veterinary Clinic.
