This one is easy!

Make a one-time annual donation of $365 or more, just $1 a day, to help us provide pet food and veterinary care for animals in need and support the Commonwealth’s future veterinary professionals. Make a monthly pledge – maybe not as great as your Netflix monthly subscription, but it will have a bigger impact on others – a $30.00 a month pledge which is automatically deducted from your credit card is another option for anyone who prefers to spread out their generosity throughout the year.

Make It A Team Effort 

Even if you aren’t the boss, show your support to Animal Care PA by asking your practice or business to support your charity of choice. If your practice makes a donation of $365, it can be used as a charitable deduction at tax time.

Point Of Sale

As a practice, set up a Point of Sale donation option for clients in your payment software system. Most of the systems can handle doing this and then Animal Care PA will work with you to set up your monthly donation process to send in the money you have collected.

About Animal Care PA

The Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation (PVF), d/b/a Animal Care PA, was established in 1983, and serves as the charitable arm of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association but functions as an independent Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. The mission of Animal Care PA is to help caring people help animals by bridging the gap through our animal welfare initiatives that FEED, CARE, and EDUCATE. All Animal Care PA programs are fully funded by donations, grants, and sponsorships; therefore, programs may cease to exist at any time if funding is no longer available.
