A disaster would include, but is not limited to, flooding, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires or oil spills in an area that has been declared a disaster area at the local, county, state or federal level.

Professional/staff time, overhead costs, equipment usage fees and taxes are not reimbursable. Limited funds are currently available and will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note, AVMF does NOT normally reimburse expenses that should be reimbursed through the PETS Act. For information on the PETS Act see the PETS Act FAQ on the AVMA website www.avma.org.
