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.

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.

  • BirchBark Foundation

    BirchBark Foundation is the first of its kind in Central Coast region. While there are wonderful animal aid groups in both Monterey and Santa Cruz, there are no other organizations that are singularly dedicated to saving the lives of pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for all or part of the care they need to survive. Using established criteria, BirchBark provides financial grants to animal owners who are unable to partially or fully cover the cost of their pet’s emergency or critical care. BirchBark's financial aid program is currently limited to residents of Monterey and Santa Cruz counties in California. Our goal is to keep pets with their families�"it’s the least we can do for the unconditional love and companionship they give so freely. - To learn how to apply for assistance visit www.birchbarkfoundation.org/apply_for_help
