2024 AZPetVet Holiday Donation Drive for Saint Vincent de Paul

Dec 22, 2023 | Arizona Pet Health, AZPetVet, Giving Back

Img 2563In celebration of Turkey Tuesday this holiday season, AZPetVet proudly teamed up again this year with St. Vincent de Paul (SVdP) for an annual donation drive. Our collaboration with SVdP reflects our commitment to leveraging community power to support individuals and families in need.

All donations collected this year supported SVdP’s Companion Animal Program, a program dedicated to keeping pet owners and their furry companions safe, together, and sheltered. Through the program pet owners gain access to wellness check-ups, vaccines, microchipping, licensure, food, supplies, and more, facilitated by partnerships with organizations like AZPetVet.

During the month of November, donation boxes were placed at all 22 AZPetVet locations across the valley, resulting in an incredible outpouring of generosity from our community! This year, we collected a staggering 4,037 pounds of pet food – (that is FOUR THOUSAND pounds), and 3,137 pet supply items, all thanks to the kindness of those who contributed!

“We were honored to be partnered with St. Vincent de Paul on this incredible initiative, and recognize that none of this would be possible without the hundreds of community members who rally each year and flood our hospitals with food, treats, toys, and beds for pets and families in need. Your amazing support helps us to make a meaningful impact across the valley – together.”
   – Courtney Gruber, President of AZPetVet 

Since the program’s launch in 2021, the Companion Animal Program has served countless pets with medical needs, and even more have been spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and licensed through local partnerships. We’re thrilled to have been able to partner with St. Vincent de Paul once again this year, working collaboratively to provide essential supplies and veterinary care to the pets in our community. Your support makes all the difference!
