Charitable care for service animals

Supporting those who provide charitable veterinary care for service animals of  military veterans

Supporting veterans and their service or companion animals is critical. These men and women have invested in our country, and we can say thank you by helping with veterinary care when finances are a challenge.

If you are an AVMA member caring for an animal owned by a veteran, consider applying for funding from the AVMF’s REACH program to help pay for charitable veterinary care.
