Join the Program. Gain the Benefits.

With VCA Animal Hospitals nationwide, we have the staff and resources to make meaningful contributions to our community shelters partners and the many pets they work hard to adopt into good homes.

VCA has been fortunate to work with many outstanding animal shelter/rescue organizations. Below are several dedicated partners who have been with us for five years or longer.

  • "Our partnership is a win/win/win-for the adopters, pets and hospitals. We have resources that wouldn’t normally be available to our small shelter…and to see that VCA also helps animals in disaster, just reinforces our commitment to our partnership!" - Leigh Grady, Executive Director, Animal Shelter, Inc. Sterling, MA
  • "The SPCA of Texas and the VCA Shelter Program partnership have proven to be a win. VCA’s feedback has helped us modify our practices, resulting in reduced shelter diseases. VCA has also been an active listener and very accommodating to our mission." - James Bias, CAWA, President, SPCA of Texas, Houston, TX
  • "Through the generosity and kindness of VCA, the Houston SPCA is able to provide support and education to adopters, help heal sick and injured animals and give them a second chance at life. Making miracles happen and saving more lives!" - Patricia Mercer, President, Houston SPCA. Houston, TX

We are also a proud sponsor of SAWA

Medical Benefits and Savings

To provide peace of mind to pet adopters during and after the pet adoption process, every newly adopted pet (from our shelter partner) seen at a VCA hospital within five days after adoption gets a free initial exam and automatically qualifies for a 10-day Healthcare Plan that covers many common conditions. In addition, new pet adopters are educated by our medical experts and hospital team members on how best to keep their pet healthy and happy for the long term.

Other valuable medical benefits and savings include:

  • Shelter partner pets (pre-adoption) brought to VCA for treatment before adoption receive healthcare at a discounted partner rate.
