PAWS NY is tBCT Logo Vertical for webhrilled to announce that Banfield Charitable Trust has renewed its support with a $10,000 grant to go toward its Veterinary Care Program.  At PAWS NY, we strongly believe that no pet should go without basic veterinary care simply because of the physical and financial obstacles their guardian faces.  Renewed support from Banfield Charitable Trust will make this possible by allowing us to enhance our impact by providing veterinary care for our clients’ pets.

The goal of our PAWS NY Veterinary Care Program is to ensure that our clients’ pets receive the medical care they deserve by providing financial assistance for annual wellness exams and legally required vaccinations, as well as for certain medical emergencies.  Veterinary care is an important element in maximizing the time our clients and their pets can spend together.   It allows us to catch early signs of illness, and to help combat potential health issues that can ultimately lead to a longer, healthier, and happier life for the pet and guardian.  These animals would otherwise go without important and often life-saving medical care.

The impact of Banfield Charitable Trust’s funding will be enhanced thanks to partner vets Riverside Animal Hospital on W. 108th Street, St. Marks Veterinary Hospital, and Vetcierge, each of which provides us with a generous discount toward their services. We are actively seeking to expand our veterinary partner network as well to further maximize the impact of every dollar spent on this program, so if you are a vet or know a vet who may be interested in getting involved, please contact us at info@pawsny.org or (212) 203-4760.

With Banfield Charitable Trust as our lead partner in our Veterinary Care Program, we will make even greater strides in the protection of the human-animal bond.  We look forward to another year of great success!
