AAHA Helping Pets Fund Resumes Grants After $25,000 Donation

The Veterinary Pet Insurance has been granted $25,000 from the AAHA’s Helping Pets Fund.

The American Animal Hospital Association Foundation’s Helping Pets Fund recently received a $25,000 donation from Veterinary Pet Insurance, allowing the foundation to resume grant funding immediately.

The AAHA Foundation temporarily suspended  grants in April  because the increased number of pets helped this fiscal year had depleted funds.

“We are very excited and appreciative for this wonderful gift,” said John Albers, DVM, executive director of AAHA. “By supporting the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, VPI is helping change, and many times save the lives of companion animals that otherwise wouldn’t receive help.”

The Helping Pets Fund helps those in need access veterinary care for their sick or injured pets. The foundation awards grants supporting veterinary care for pets that have been abandoned or whose owners are experiencing financial hardship.

Since its inception in 2005, the AAHA Helping Pets Fund has awarded more than $800,000 in grants to help more than 3,000 pets.

Veterinary Pet Insurance is based in Brea, Calif.
