Eden Alternative provides an alternative to the current environment most of us see in nursing homes by adding resident animals. 

The unique JOSH program offers an opportunity for veterinary and human medicine to join together to offer comfort to clients and patients alike.


Veterinary Medical Assistance Teams (VMAT), established by the AVMA and supported by the AVMF, provides veterinary-related emergency preparedness, response and recovery efforts for animals effected by disasters.

The No Paws Left Behind program makes veterinary care possible for sick or injured pets when they have been abandoned or when their owners are experiencing financial hardship.

ASPCA was formed to alleviate the injustices and cruelty animals face.

 

Mentoring is an avenue that Veterinary Technicians can choose to "Give Back" to the community and make a difference in the life of a child or young adult. And, of course, volunteering your time to a local shelter or rescue organization is always a great way to give back.
