Giving Tuesday: Help Pets Receive Medical Care They Need

Nov 29, 2016


The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, known as Giving Tuesday, is a global day of giving. This year Giving Tuesday is on November 29. On this day, non-profit organizations, charities, and businesses all around the world rally to encourage the public to give back to their community through financial donations, volunteer time, or gifts. Last year over 700,000 people participated and $116,000,000 was raised online in over 70 countries!

This year, The COVE would like to ask you to join the Giving Tuesday movement by helping pets in need of medical care. The COVE partners with an extraordinary organization called Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF). VCF is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation works with veterinary hospitals to fund their discounted and no-charge patients. Foundation funds are used for medical care of:

  • Good Samaritan cases
  • Police/fire and service animals
  • Sick pets of families in crisis
  • Pets harmed or displaced due to local disaster (such as weather, fire, flood, etc.)


100% of all donations given to the veterinary practice through VCF go directly to the care of pets.

Join us in helping pets in need. They say that giving is better than receiving. Well, to make the giving even sweeter, all donations are tax-deductible. Our biggest joy is to see an injured or sick pet return to health and back to its family. We hope you will share this joy with us by donating to the Veterinary Care Foundation – The COVE.

As a token of our gratitude, donations of $25 or more to The COVE through VCF will receive our VCF tervis tumbler! Once confirmation is received via e-mail from VCF, we will be in touch to get the tumbler to you right away.

Here’s how you can donate to Veterinary Care Foundation – The COVE.


Visit VCF’s Donate Money to a Veterinary Practice page. Follow the prompts to select The COVE. It is listed as “Center of Veterinary Expertise (Suffolk).”

By Mail

Send a check payable to “Veterinary Care Foundation”. Please write “Center of Veterinary Expertise” on the memo line to indicate that you would like your gift to go to The COVE.
