Veterinary Urgent Care of the Desert created the Care Fund in partnership with the Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, in order to expand our efforts to help pets in need. Since the foundation’s operating expenses are funded through VUCD's membership dues, 100% of every dollar donated to the VUCD Care Fund is used to treat sick or injured animals.

How the Funds Are Used


Our Care Fund donations are generally restricted to the following:

  • Funding for Good Samaritan cases

  • Funding for abandoned pets

  • Assistance for pet owners in financial crisis

  • Emergency and medical care for lost or injured pets

  • Support local and regional animal rescue organizations

  • Funding recipients must have a treatment plan and estimate from Veterinary Urgent Care of the Desert and demonstrate that all other payment options have been exhausted including:

  • Personal finances (credit cards, scratch pay, and care credit)

  • Donations from family and friends

  • Additional fundraising efforts
