Pro Bono Vet Network

Miranda's People has established and continues to build a “Pro Bono Vet Network” which welcomes dedicated medical professionals such as Veterinarians, Veterinary Oncologists, Surgeons, and others to join this Network that is dedicated to assisting dog parents who are unable to pay for medical treatment for their dogs who have cancer.

We welcome all Vets to join our network as no donation of time, discounted services, or free products is too small.

In addition to the benefit of receiving some cost breaks for financially-challenged dog parents; and therefore, if the applicant meets our criteria and funds are available, we can award funds more quickly as the grant applicant, their dog, and their vet are not completely unknown to us. Thus, the typical time it might take to “vet” an applicant is significantly shortened and the dog is able to receive treatment in a timelier manner.
