Mardi Paws Masquerade Ball Cancelled
Our board member, Dorothy Georgina, passed away on March 1. After discussion with other officers, we have decided to cancel.
With $5,000, we can save the lives of at least 10 companion animals, keeping them with their owners. This year, our focus is on the elderly and disabled veterans. Research has demonstrated that seniors enjoy a better quality of life, live longer, and are happier if they have a pet. Our program is structured purposefully and to maximize our ability to assist those who really need the help, and to avoid fraud.
All of your tax-deductible donation to the Veterinary Medical Assistance Program, whether that’s $1 or $100, will be used to help pay veterinary costs for those who need financial assistance. None of it will pay overhead. Our overhead is modest and is paid by our president, so we can use your donation to help more pets.
Become a Participating Veterinarian
Our programs are administered through participating veterinarians, who conduct the initial screening of grant recipients, forwarding their applications to us. Applicants who meet program requirements are selected for grant awards. Veterinarians offer awardees a 15% or more discount from customary fees, and upon completion of the necessary procedure, are paid directly by the program.
