Help Houston Pets

The Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation has created a charitable fund to provide financial assistance to Houston, Texas area veterinarians to care for pets that have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey. The Help Houston Pets Fund will provide much needed financial assistance to veterinarians that are providing veterinary care to sick and injured animals that have been adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Veterinary Care Foundation is currently providing charitable funding to more than 20 Houston area veterinary practices.

The Foundation will insure that 100% of every dollar donated to the the Help Houston Pets Fund will go directly to Houston area veterinary practices and all contributions are fully tax deductible to donors.

The Veterinary Care Foundation was established in 2008 and has worked with more than 500 veterinary practices throughout the U.S.
