We are very proud to announce that Falcon Valley Animal Hospital has created a charitable fund to offer financial support to clients who need assistance to provide life-saving care for their pets.
Of course, as veterinarians, we love animals first and foremost and don’t want any family to have to make that terrible decision. Inspired by clients who wanted to help less fortunate owners afford emergency pet care, we signed up to partner with the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

The Veterinary Care Charitable Fund® is a program created by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) to provide veterinarians with a simple and effective way to offer charitable veterinary services to clients facing personal hardships as well as a means to support animals who are injured or rescued from abuse and neglect. Enrolled veterinary hospitals now have a way to offer low or no-cost services to clients who may otherwise be forced to surrender or euthanize their beloved pets.
Charitable care may be provided to those in need including:
- Disabled veterans requiring a service dog
- Low-Income senior citizens
- Good Samaritans who rescue domesticated animals
- Victims of domestic violence
Thank you for your generosity!
1. How will the charitable funds be used?
- Charitable Contributions will be used for a variety of purposes including:
- Good Samaritan cases
- CareCredit denied clients

- There are two main differences:

This difference can be significant for large contributions.
