Our Pet Care Partners
Caring for all of your pet's needs takes more than we could ever provide alone. Here are some local organizations and businesses that we recommend to our patients and their families.
Pet Health and Lifestyle Information
We know a well-informed owner coupled with an expert veterinary care team is key to maintaining the happiness and
health of your pet. That’s why we partnered with Vetstreet.com to bring you additional pet health and lifestyle
information you can’t find on our website. Vetstreet.com contains a wealth of pet information written by leading
veterinarians, journalists, and animal health care experts. Whether you are wondering about why your dog puts his
head out of the window while driving, seeking a workout plan for you and your dog, or trying to figure out how to get
your cat to take her medicine, VCA and Vetstreet.com are here to help.
The Foundation for Feline Urban Rescue
The Foundation for Feline Urban Rescue (FFUR) works to reduce the number of stray cats and kittens in Philadelphia by trapping, rescuing and placing cats and kittens in good homes. The FFUR team uses VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia exclusively for the medical treatment of the cats they rescue. They often spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on a single rescue kitty to test for FeLV/FIV, vaccinate, spay or neuter and treat medical conditions including dental disease. When the FFUR organization provides you with an adoptable cat, he or she has been restored to good health.
Rittenhouse Pet Supply
Rittenhouse Pet Supply is a pet shop located at 135 S. 20th St. between Walnut and Sansom Sts. which is just down the street from VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia as you are heading towards Chestnut St. We gladly support Store Owner Wendy Schnaars, her staff and their house cat "Monty."
