The REACH Animal Care Program helps to remove barriers to care by providing AVMA members grants that ease the cost of treatment for urgent care of animals whose owners are experiencing financial hardship.
REACH aims to break down barriers to access to immediate veterinary care by offering grants to any of the more than 100,000 AVMA members nationwide, increasing assistance and access to the most vulnerable communities. This program empowers AVMF to bring our “Helping Veterinarians Help Animals” motto to fruition on a much greater national and regional scale, potentially assisting thousands more animals in need every year.
