To provide medical and lifesaving support for animals at risk, as the charitable arm of the Massachusetts Veterinary Medical Association.
The MVMA Charities (MVMAC) has two key programs to help protect and serve the pet communities of Massachusetts.
Our Stray Animal Program provides financial assistance for emergency veterinary care of unowned animals so they can be rehabilitated and re-homed. Funds are made available to every city and town in Massachusetts.
Our Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Programs provide materials and education for first responders so that they can effectively address animal-related emergencies. This includes distributing pet oxygen mask kits to fire stations and training first responders (fire fighters, EMS) in basic animal first aid across Massachusetts. We've also provided funding for the State of Massachusetts Animal Response Team (SMART), Pawsitive Pantry to assist with pet food distribution to food pantries, and Mass Vest-A-Dog to purchase equipment for police K9 officers.
Peace and love for animals, peace of mind for pet owners.
