The Pieper Foundation 501(c)(3)

Advanced technology, continuing education, and new research breakthroughs have allowed veterinary medicine to achieve tremendous growth in our emergency treatment capabilities. Unfortunately, these developments do result in rising costs of emergency care. This can lead to families being faced with difficult decisions in critical situations.

The Pieper Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of pets and their families by providing necessary financial support for life-saving veterinary care during times of emergencies. For these unforeseen events, this nonprofit organization will provide financial assistance and payment options, helping support the cost of the medical care pets need to return home healthy.

The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable foundation created for the specific purpose of helping veterinary practices fund the discounted and no charge care they generously provide to hardship cases or as good Samaritans.

Unlike other veterinary charities, 100% of every contribution to the Veterinary Care Foundation and The Pieper Foundation go directly to improving the quality of life of pets and their people; all Foundation operating expenses are met by Pieper Veterinary.

All donations are tax-deductible.
