Compassion Funds

The Veterinary Health Center Compassion Funds were designed as pay-it-forward programs to provide life-saving services for animals that have no caretakers or caretakers with special circumstances. 

Compassion funds are vital to the hospital to assist in the care of owned and un-owned animals. 

Kind Hearts Compassion Fund

Provides life saving treatment to patients. If an owner is unable to pay for the entire treatment and the pet has a good prognosis, the Kind Hearts Compassion Fund exists to cover the gap in payment.  

Service Animal in Need 

The VHC is committed to giving back to those who have served their communities. The Service Animal in Need fund provides support for animals who have served the public in the military, police or serving a person with a disability and needs assistance in the cost of treatment.

Wild Animal Care Fund

Injured and sick wildlife are often brought to the VHC for care. This fund helps provide treatment to stabilize or heal the animal and provide options for rehabilitation or release into the wild.

Shelter Medicine Fund

The Mobile Surgery Unit travels regionally to offer spay and neuter services to shelter pets at no cost to the shelter. The Mobile Surgery Unit is responsible for preparing 5,000 pets for adoption each year in addition to offering veterinary students to gain unparalleled experience.
