I ran across this article online today in American Dog magazine and thought I would pass it along.  With the state of our economy no one is immune to hardship and "downsizing" it seems.  You never know when you will find youself in a tough financial spot and need vet care for your beloved Dog.   For some people I am sure insurance isn't always an option either.   If you know of other resources please add them to the comments...
