Lake Emma Animal Hospital is proud to partner with the Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that was created specifically to assist veterinary facilities with providing low or no cost services to rescue groups, owners facing financial hardship, or to stray pets as good Samaritans.
Every year Lake Emma Animal Hospital donates a considerable amount of time and money to several local animal health related charitable endeavors in our community. With a growing number of pet owners who are struggling to afford veterinary care, the need for help far outweighs the capacity of any individual veterinary practice to provide.
Through the VCF, Lake Emma Animal Hospital will be able to directly provide veterinary care for pet owners facing financial hardships, including:
- Low-income seniors
- Disabled veterans
- Individuals requiring service dogs
- Victims of domestic violence
- Good Samaritans who rescue and rehabilitate animals
How Can You Help?
Lake Emma Animal Hospital encourages fellow animal lovers in the community to make charitable contributions of any amount through VCF, and every penny donated goes directly to our fund to help animals in need. Please support our efforts to make sure that all our patients receive the medical treatment they deserve. Contributions are tax-deductible and may be made in memory or recognition of beloved pets.
In addition, Lake Emma Animal Hospital also has a K-9 Heroes Fund to support retired military and police dogs. Much like their human counterparts, these animals have very demanding jobs. Years of service can take their toll physically and even mentally.
These dogs are retired due to either old age or injury/illness, and they retire with no benefits—leaving their handlers or adoptive parents to cover their medical expenses. Veterinary issues may include expensive procedures and on-going medications. We believe that just like their human counterparts, these four-legged heroes deserve quality medical care long beyond their days on active duty. Your donations honor these courageous creatures and allow them to comfortably enjoy their golden years.
