What is the St. Paul Pet Hospital (SPPH) Veterinary Care Foundation?
St. Paul Pet Hospital’s foundation was developed in 2020 amidst a global pandemic, a time when providing care was at its most difficult. The foundation's mission is to provide assistance in those situations where financial burdens prevent pet owners from obtaining veterinary care.
SPPH partnered with the Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation to bridge this need. Together, we are able to help save critically ill and injured pets who are cherished by their owners. Because the foundation’s operating expenses are funded through SPPH’s membership dues, 100% of every dollar donated to the SPPH Veterinary Care Foundation is used for the medical treatment of sick and injured animals.
Those who meet qualifications are required to sign a release guaranteeing they will maintain a good relationship with their veterinarian. The release also allows SPPH to use the case for continued fundraising efforts (note: owners will not be identified in the success stories).
It is important to remember our foundation is 100% donations-based. Availability of funds may be limited and are at the sole discretion of SPPH.
