We’ve supported local pet nonprofits from day one.
We’ve donated over $1.3M in free medical services to 14 Central Texas animal nonprofits.
Our partners promote animal compassion and prevent homelessness. They train support dogs for children, seniors, and veterans and offer low-cost healthcare. Overall, they love and protect dogs and cats as much as we do.
The free medical care we offer helps them prepare their pets for adoption and a good life with forever families.
As we grow, our giving will grow as well!
We also give back in two other ways:
- K-12 education and “vet for a day” hospital visits ignite STEM passion.
- Supporting your events! We love to meet the people and pets of Central Texas at neighborhood fundraisers.
