Donate Veterinary Services

Donating veterinarian services benefits everyone.

Donating veterinary services is a wonderful way to help both animals and their owners. You can reach out to your community, local rescue groups -- or do something on a more global level. Volunteering can be done on multiple levels, depending on how much time you are willing to invest. Spending a day vaccinating or spaying local pets is just as important as traveling to an area where the animals need a greater amount of care. Whichever you do, the animals and pet owners will be grateful you chose to donate your services.


1. Reach out to rescue groups in your area. Most rescue groups have dogs in their rescue that need some kind of veterinary care. Dogs and cats need to be spayed or neutered before being adopted out. Some are in need of dental care or have other problems. Most rescue groups are 501c charitable organizations and can supply a letter for tax purposes.

2. Call the Board of Health in your town or county and offer to volunteer to help give rabies vaccinations. Most communities have yearly rabies clinics that offer free rabies vaccines to dogs and cats and would appreciate an offer of help.

3. Volunteer with a nationwide organization to travel around the USA offering veterinary services to low income communities, or places that faced extreme weather or other disasters. If you want to reach out on a more global level, there are organizations that travel abroad to do veterinary work where animals have been affected by natural disasters, wars and economic factors.
