McVitie Fund matching grant from Renu Bakshi: Scroll down to donate :)

DOUBLE your donation to help animals like Rocky

Every donation made towards the McVitie Fund until June 30th will be matched, up to $5,000!

We are so grateful to Renu Bakshi, one of VHS’ amazing monthly donors, for generously committing to matching every donation VHS receives towards the McVitie Fund before June 30th, up to a total of $5,000.

Rocky’s story: When Rocky’s guardian was tragically killed, Rocky was taken in by his guardian’s father, Ameer. Rocky has been Ameer’s anchor since the loss of his son. When Rocky developed a hernia and needed a lumpectomy, Ameer reached out to the McVitie Fund for help. Ameer is on disability income and couldn’t afford Rocky’s veterinary care. 

VHS contributes approximately $500 to each case we assist with. This year, we anticipate that the McVitie Fund will help approximately 200 animals in need, with an estimated expenditure of $70,000.

Your donation today towards the McVitie Fund matching grant will:

– Cover the cost of veterinary treatments ranging from simple antibiotic treatments for infections, to major surgeries for bowel obstructions, dental work and broken bones.
Keep animals with their loving guardians, ensuring that no animal is unnecessarily surrendered or euthanized.
– Enable VHS to provide a specialist trauma-informed care response for vulnerable clients that are struggling financially.

Thank you for helping animals like Rocky get back on their paws!
