About Us

Pet Crisis Fund

From January 2014 to December 2019, the Pet Crisis Fund has helped over 200 families with pets receive emergency veterinary care. Assistance has included examinations, obstructions, parvo treatment, emergency surgeries, and humane euthanasia. Below are just a few of the many pets this fund has helped. Or, you can read more stories on our blog!

Thanks to our East Side Pet Crisis Fund, we are able to help keep pets with their people by providing emergency veterinary care. But we aren’t able to help unless funds are available. YOU can make a difference in the life of a community pet, and keep a family whole by donating to this fund.

Metro East residents in need of emergency veterinary care for their pets may call (618) 687-8007 ext. 4.
