At Androscoggin Animal Hospital, we’ve seen it all when it comes to pet illnesses and injuries. Each member of our staff entered the field of veterinary medicine out of a deep love for animals, and a desire to help them heal and to see them thrive. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than having to watch a family struggle to afford paying for their pet’s medical bills, or worse having to make the decision to decline treatment. 

Helping our beloved patients and their families, and giving back to our community are both extremely important to us, which is why we’ve joined forces with the Animal Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) Veterinary Charitable Fund.

What is the AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund?

The AVMF Veterinary Care Charitable Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that can save and administer funds donated tax-free to clients (cases designated by Androscoggin Animal Hospital only) who are struggling to pay for veterinary services due to financial hardship. The Veterinary Care Charitable Fund also provides monetary support for animals that are rescued from abusive or neglectful situations.

Our previous charitable fund was called “Hope for Pets”, and was conceived by our staff to try to help cover some of the unexpected expenses our clients might face in an emergency. We  joined the AVMF in order to allow for tax free donations, making the fund more “official”. The funds are used for established clients and patients that meet criteria outlined by our clinic.

One Pet at a Time

In a perfect world, all pets would be loved and cared for, and no pet would have to go without necessary medical treatment. Until that day, our team will work tirelessly for the wellbeing of the animals in our community. We dedicate this fund in memory of every patient of ours that crosses the rainbow bridge as a token of our shared sorrow.
