VEG partners with non-profit Veterinary Care Foundation on VEG Cares to make life-saving care possible for pets in need in your community. Through donations from local families, fundraisers, and partners, VEG emergency vets and nurses are empowered to make the best decision possible about each patient's care and say yes to treatment that could save their lives.

It could be your neighbor's dog, who needs urgent surgery that his owner can't afford. Or a cat from a local rescue who's having trouble breathing and needs oxygen treatment to survive. Or a local family that has fallen on hard times and can't pay for their pet's care. Through VEG Cares, VEG can give them the medical care they need, when they need it most.

100% of the proceeds go directly toward helping pets in need.

Our annual 5K

This fall, join Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG) for the third annual VEG Cares 5K, a fun family and pet-friendly event and our biggest fundraiser! Support local pets in need as you walk, run, or scurry the 5K route in Westchester, NY, and then enjoy lunch and other goodies as well as kid- and pet-friendly activities!

All 5K registration proceeds will go directly to our charitable program, VEG Cares, which provides life-saving care to pets in need in local VEG communities. 100% of all donations go toward providing these animals with emergency care at our VEG hospitals nationwide.
