Helping charities in need.
VETMED Cares. We really do. That’s why every three months we feature a local rescue or charity. We proudly support and invest in our community and employees through charitable efforts that help make Arizona a better place to live for people and animals. Caring can significantly impact the lives of those within our community.
This quarter, we are featuring:
Arizona Small Dog Rescue is a nonprofit, registered 501(c)(3) no kill rescue shelter. They’re a group of volunteers who have dedicated their lives to rescuing and saving homeless, unwanted, abandoned, neglected, and abused dogs.
When space is available, they accept owner surrenders of all breeds under 20 pounds for no fee or a small fee. They spay/neuter, vaccinate, and medically examine ALL DOGS who come into their rescue. They have many dogs turned in every week and always have a wide variety of available dogs who would fit into all families and homes.
Please join us in supporting this dedicated team, and make a difference!
We’ve highlighted the success stories of the cats and dogs who have battled tremendous odds and now enjoy the happy, healthy lives they deserve thanks to the skilled efforts of the VETMED team and the rescue organizations who saw that these animals got the medical assistance they needed.
Blood Donation Program
Our team at VETMED proudly fosters a Blood Donor Program in which healthy dogs and cats help less fortunate animals through blood donation. Our program works much like a human blood bank. Critically ill or injured veterinary patients often require blood products for life-saving treatment, and that blood is provided by animals belonging to our veterinarians and staff. Blood is periodically drawn and safely stored, where it’s ready once a patient needs it.
We proudly stand behind charities that are important to our VETMED team members. VETMED cares about:
|Jennifer Lundal, Hospice of the Valley Volunteer since 2003:
Hospice of the Valley provides compassionate end-of-life care. They serve thousands of families across the Valley every day, and relieve suffering in all realms – physical, emotional and spiritual.
|Dr. Christina Grant, Gabriel’s Angels Volunteer since 2015:
Gabriel’s Angels delivers healing pet therapy to at-risk children, nurturing their emotional development and enhancing the quality of their lives forever. VETMED’s own Dr. Grant volunteers her time here, along with her pit bull Posey, Gabriel’s Angels’ newest Therapy Dog.
|Breta Peterson, Guide Dogs for the Blind:
Guide Dogs for the Blind is a passionate community that serves the visually impaired through a variety of client services and network of trainers, puppy raisers, donors and volunteers.
