VCA Charities campaign brings joy to shelter partners, pets, pet parents

In late December, VCA Charities announced its holiday campaign cleared shelter wish lists, covered adoption costs and funded veterinary care in support of adoption readiness. The campaign is supported by fundraising inside VCA Animal Hospitals with donations from VCA clients and assistance from VCA's 35,000 associates.

Kimberly West, president and chair of VCA Charities’ board of directors and vice president for corporate affairs at VCA Animal Hospitals, said in a news release that in Los Angeles, the organization also provided support to shelter teams by volunteering time and veterinary medicine skills.

VCA Charities also fulfilled the wish list of the Los Angeles County Fire Foundation Search Dog Team, a search and rescue unit that is part of FEMA's California Task Force 2.

“Clearing the wish list of these working dogs was especially meaningful,” said Kim Van Syoc, executive director of VCA Charities. “These incredible handlers and canines log countless hours of training to effectively respond to communities in crisis. We've been told nothing brings more joy to these teams than being ready to respond.”

Since 2021, VCA Charities has donated more than $2 million in grants and provided nearly 1.3 million meals to hungry pets in partnership with Hill's Pet Nutrition. Whether it's responding to disasters, transporting pets from at-capacity shelters to ones with a waitlist of adopters or funding emergency veterinary care for pets belonging to low-income pet owners, VCA Charities works to support the joy of pet ownership.
