We often have clients ask if there is a way they can donate as a way of giving back and doing something that will benefit other pets in Savannah, GA. Often this request occurs after the loss of a pet and is intended to serve as a a memorial for their loved one. At our veterinary clinic in Savannah, we have listed below some of the ways that you can donate, both monetary and otherwise.
The Veterinary Care Foundation
The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c) (3) charitable foundation created to offer financial support to individual veterinary practices that provide help to abandoned pets or those experiencing significant financial crisis. The financial decisions that must be made when a pet is ill or needs surgery can further compound the sorrow felt when a pet is sick. All of us at Case Veterinary Hospital wish we could provide our services for free, but, the reality is that we must collect our fees in order to be able to remain in business and provide the high Standards of Care that we believe every pet deserves. Donations made to this organization allow those who have been financially blessed to bless others who are less fortunate but want to provide care for their pet. Our clients can direct their donations to our hospital so that our veterinarians can use the funding for those clients they feel are in need of extra funds. We love this idea because you can get the tax benefit from your donation and you know our doctors will use the funds in a way that will benefit those in need the most. You can be assured that the funds will be used at our veterinarians’ discretion to help pets in need.
If you wish to donate to this fund, please go to the link here and use our hospital name. You can also speak with our Office Manager or with one of our veterinarians at our animal hospital. Animals enrich each of our lives in such a profound way and this is a wonderful opportunity to “pay it forward”.
University of Georgia
As the alma mater of many of our veterinarians as well as that of Dr. Jerry and Carla Case, the Case Veterinary Hospital donates regularly to the University of Georgia’s Arch Fund. This Fund supports the Veterinary Medicine Hospital Building Campaign through pet memorials. Information about the Arch Fund can be found at www.vet.uga.edu/giving/funds.
Our pet hospital can always benefit from towels and newspaper to be used for our boarding and hospitalized patients. Donations of these items are greatly appreciated.
Pets Peace of Mind
We recently partnered with Hospice of Savannah to help those who are under hospice care be able to maintain the relationship they have with their pets through the help of volunteers and veterinary support. Donations can be sent to Hospice of Savannah-PPOM program. http://hospicesavannah.org
