Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To harness the power of Compassion to help create a world where no pet owner ever has to let finances be a determining factor in the health or well being of their pets. To help grow and educate a community that wants to support like minded goals.

Keeping families together. It sounds so simple. The best of pet owners can come upon a situation where they may be faced with an untenable choice where they can't afford the emergency/medical/surgical care of a beloved family member. We are committed to the idea that finances should not be a determining factor in the health and well being of our four legged family members. No one should be placed in the position of having to choose economic euthanasia when a favorable outcome is available. To that end we are dedicated to providing grants to those families/pet owners that need assistance in their time of need to save their pet and keep their family together.
Compassion is sympathy coupled with an urgent desire to aid. It is not an emotion alone but inherently coupled with action.

Through the many years of experience of our Founder and Board Members steeped in Referral Based Veterinary Medicine and Business we have the necessary professional contacts as well as business acumen to make an idealistic initiative such as this not only succeed but thrive.

In 2022 we are actively fundraising for our initiative and will begin funding appropriate cases this summer. We are reaching out to corporate sponsors, the vast community of pet lovers everywhere and the veterinary community at large to build our community nationwide.
