Access To Care Grants

VCA Charities provides vulnerable pets access to care through our grant programs. From disaster response and COVID-19 relief efforts to supporting local animal shelters in our communities, grants allow animal welfare organizations in our communities increase their impact and reach to help as many pets as possible – and the people who love.

Pennies for Pets

In 2010, VCA Charities launched the Pennies for Pets program. The mission of the Pennies program is to provide a platform for collecting donations so our hospitals can financially support worthy nonprofit organizations. Pennies is a simple retail round up your bill, point of sale (POS) donation based program that further supports the mission of helping pets in need.
