Perpetual Pet Care Program

Dog with owners

What is the Perpetual Pet Care Program?

The Perpetual Pet Care Program (PPCP) provides your pets with a lifetime of medical care and a loving home when an owner is no longer able to provide care. Our extensive foster network and veterinary experts are committed to care for your animals as if they are our own.

Enroll your pets. Enjoy these benefits:

  • Peace of mind knowing your pet has dedicated care and a loving home for its life
  • PPCP fund provides medical care for life
  • Enrollment is only a 2-step process
  • Our foster network provides care to enrollees nationwide
  • Any remaining funds support patients, students, and research at the VHC

For more than a century, the College of Veterinary Medicine has provided care for animals. This expansive network will support every aspect of your pet's adoption and life.

Enrollment Process

To enroll, please contact a member of our development team. We will provide you with the proper documents to initiate the enrollment process, gather more detailed information about your pet, and work together to finalize the Perpetual Pet Care agreement.

Funding your pet's enrollment:

The minimum for small animals (cats, dogs) is $50,000; and the minimum for large animals (horses, mules) and birds is $100,000. Most participants designate these funds through an estate plan, but this can also easily be funded via a cash gift. Your gift will first provide for your pet(s) medical needs. After each pet's passing, the remaining funds will support the Veterinary Health Center. Please contact the College of Veterinary Medicine's Development Office if you have any questions. Tax deductibility will be determined in accordance with IRS, state and federal regulations.
