The Yogi Memorial Fund
Through the generosity of Dan Boileau and, in memory of his beloved SAGA Greyhound Yogi Bear, this fund was set-up to provide financial assistance to SAGA Greyhound owners whose Greyhounds have received a definitive diagnosis of Cancer and request financial assistance from this fund.
Before applying for this Fund we ask that everyone consider their financial need carefully. The Fund is not large and we want to help those SAGA Greyhound owners that are in a tough spot financially.
The fund will only reimburse costs for palliative care or active treatment and will not reimburse the costs of the diagnosis.
NOTE: SAGA defines the following:
- diagnosis as all costs associated with the act or process of identifying or determining the nature and cause of the cancer through evaluation of the Greyhound’s history as well as the examination and review of laboratory data. It also consists of the opinion derived from such an evaluation.
- active treatment that directed immediately to the cure of the disease
- palliative treatment treatment designed to relieve pain and distress with no attempt to cure.
The Yogi Memorial Fund will reimburse 10% of the costs for treatment of your Greyhounds’ Cancer up to a maximum of $400.00.
To be eligible for consideration you must be the owner of record for your SAGA Greyhound and have adopted directly from SAGA.
SAGA will require copies of your vet receipts, we may need to communicate with your vet and not every application is guaranteed to be approved.
In addition SAGA requires an Application Form to be filled out and returned to the above email address along with your written request. If you click here you can download and print the Application Form: Yogi Memorial Fund Application Form
(NOTE: If you have Pet Insurance you are not eligible for this Fund as your treatment costs will be covered - Thank you for being a responsible Pet Owner and having Pet Insurance!)
