VCA Charities makes change for veterans and their adopted pets
VCA Charities Pennies for Pets

VCA Charities and VCA Animal Hospitals are teaming up to raise funds for Pets for Patriots. The Pennies for Pets campaign runs from April 1, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

Last year we earned a nearly $6,000 donation. This year more hospitals have joined in the fun and are competing to see which practice can raise the most money for us.

Donate at any of VCA Animal Hospitals below and 100 percent of your gift will be donated to support our life-saving work. If you work or live near any of these practices, please stop in to make a donation to VCA Charities. And if you are a client you can round up your bill:

Bay Ridge Animal Hospital – Brooklyn
Bond Animal Hospital – White Plains
County Animal Clinic – Yonkers
Hope Animal Clinic – Brooklyn
Gateway Animal Hospital – Staten Island
Manhattan Veterinary Group – New York
Rosebank Animal Hospital – Staten Island
South Shore Animal Hospital – Staten Island
Staten Island Animal Hospital – Staten Island
Village Animal Hopsital – Larchmont

Make change for pets – and their people

In 2017, VCA Charities raised almost $6,000 to fund our mission pairing military veterans and the most overlooked shelter animals. After the campaign we visited Staten Island Animal Hospital for the check presentation and to meet everyone who worked so hard on our behalf.

With even more VCA Hospitals participating this year we hope to exceed last year’s donation!

All monies raised for us through this year’s campaign will be dedicated to our Hero Fund for veterinary care. This fund helps pay veterinary bills for veterans who adopted pets through our program. Without our support, these veterans face serious financial hardship, surrendering their pet to the shelter, or death of their beloved pet.

Through our Hero Fund we pay treating veterinary practices after negotiating a charity discount. We help animals who require urgent, emergency, life-extending, or palliative care. To date we have saved dozens of companion pets. In so doing we have preserved the life-saving bond between these animals and the veterans who adopted them.

You can still support our veterans and their pets even if you do not live near the hospitals listed above. Just make a secure donation here. Choose ‘hero fund for veterinary care’ when asked how you would like to direct your donation.

Please help us spread the word to make change for pets – and their people!
