Help Us Support Pets in Need
Like you, we love pets and want them all to live healthy, happy lives. Join us as we support worthy 501(c)(3) organizations that directly help pets in need, as well as educational programs promoting veterinary medicine for the treatment and prevention of cruelty to animals.
We recently donated $20,000 to the Louisiana SPCA to help transport pets out of the crowded shelters to other facilities to give them a chance at adoption. You can help us support worthwhile causes like this one by donating below.
Pennies for Pets - round up your purchase at a participating VCA Animal Hospital to the nearest dollar to support VCA Charities and its programs and designated grant recipients.
VCA Charities' Pet Food Pantry - launched in June 2010 in Venice, CA, VCA Charities' Pet Food Pantry provides pet food to the clients of food pantries. It is co-sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition. The VCA Charities Pet Food Pantry allows pets to get the necessary proper nutrition to stay healthy.
ViDAS - grants awarded semi-annually to five veterinarians, residents or technicians who travel to Playa del Carmen and Bacalar, Mexico as part of a 30-member ViDAS delegation to provide primary care and control animal overpopulation through spaying and neutering.
Matching Funds - supports local pet-related events and organizations at participating VCA Animal Hospitals.
