Veterinary Care Foundation
The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation created to offer financial support to veterinary practices that provide no-cost or low-cost care to sick and injured animals.
Veterinarians spend tens of thousands of dollars every year to provide free and low cost care to abandoned pets and to pets whose owners may be experiencing a financial crisis. Because Foundation operating expenses are funded entirely through membership dues paid by veterinarians, 100% of every dollar donated to the Veterinary Care Foundation is used to treat pets.
Donors can direct their donations to a specific veterinary practice to ensure the funds will be used exactly as the donor wishes. Or, they can direct their donation to the Good Samaritan Fund, which assists wherever most needed. The Foundation's criteria for use of donated funds are generally restricted to the following:
- Funding for Good Samaritan cases.
- Assising pet owners in financial crisis.
- Caring for police/fire and service animals.
- Funding for pets harmed or displaced due to a local disaster (such as weather, fire, etc.)

Whether you donate to a Member Veterinary Practice or to the Veterinarian Care Good Samaritan Fund, 100% of your tax-deductible donation will support the care of pets. To reach out and assist, simply visit the VCF website
