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.
