2012 Veterinary Care Fund grant program

Posted by Jennifer on June 6th, 2012

2012: We’re happy to announce that in 2012 the Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund gave away $20,000 in grants to help Adopt-a-Pet.com approved shelters and rescues with veterinary expenses for the pets in their care!

Thanks to compassionate fans who “liked” the Adopt-a-Pet.com Facebook page, Adopt-a-Pet.com had the funds to provide 20 grants of $1,000 each. From June 13 through October 25, 2012, one grant of $1,000 was awarded to a shelter or rescue each week. 

The Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund was established in 2011 with an initial donation of $50,000 from Purina Veterinary Diets® which was given out in 25 grants to shelters and rescues in 2011. You can see the recipients of the Purina Veterinary Diets® Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund 2011 program here.
