Elders on the Edge Pet Fund
Elders on the Edge Pet Fund helps provide emergency veterinary care to the pets of low-income seniors. For many of our senior clientele, their pets are their only companions. By keeping their beloved animals happy and healthy, we can help keep our elderly clients happy and healthy. This program has helped find new homes for 72 animals that could no longer be cared for by their elderly owners! We have raised over $45,000 to take care of these pets!
