Our hospitals spend tens of thousands of dollars every year on pets in need, as well as partnering with rescue groups and organizations to provide reduced cost services. GVA created the CARE (Companion Animal Rescue and Emergency) Fund in partnership with the Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, in order to expand our efforts to help pets in need. Since the foundation’s operating expenses are funded through GVA’s membership dues, 100% of every dollar donated to GVA’s CARE Fund is used to treat sick or injured animals.
