The Moore Life Medical Fund was established to help provide care to a suffering animal who may otherwise not receive assistance because of the financial burden associated with the veterinary costs. Their ailment can be either geriatric, medical, trauma related or a combination of all three. These are often animals who find themselves at our municipal shelter where getting out as soon as possible is a matter of life or death.
How does the MLMF work?
mtA will pledge a fixed amount of money from its Moore Life Medical Fund for an animal who has lingered at IACC with medical needs to assist with the vetting costs that will be incurred by the rescue organization pulling the animal. Pledges are for all volunteer rescue organizations only.
This pledge will be announced in social media by IACC.
Once the animal is pulled and seen by the rescue organization’s DVM, we ask that the rescue submit to mtA within 14 days:
The reason we asked for this follow-up (picture) is that donors to the fund appreciate seeing the outcome of their donation. Both the invoice and picture can be sent via email attachment.
Upon receipt of the invoice and picture, mtA will send the payment pledge to the DVM to be applied to that rescue organization's account.
If the amount of the pledge exceeds the vetting expense of that animal, mtA asks the DVM to apply the balance of the pledge to the rescue organization’s account for another animal’s needs.
It is our hope that the MLMF will help to erase what is referred to as “medical euthanasia”.

Note: The money from this fund is purposefully pledged for an animal who would otherwise not likely be leaving the IACC facility alive. Fortunately, there are avenues for cats, farm animals and exotics to leave the facility, so we do not pledge for them as often. The predominance of animals with the greatest needs are dogs.
