Veterinary Care Foundation

Veterinary Specialty Center (VSC) has had a long history of working with many of Chicagoland’s non-profit shelter and rescue organizations and we invite you to help us by making a donation to our Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF) Fund to support our charitable work. VSC has partnered with VCF, which provides veterinarians with a simple and effective way to offer charitable veterinary services to clients facing personal hardships, animals rescued from abuse and neglect as well as to advance the care we are able to provide.

The Veterinary Care Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) intended to cover a set portion of the bill to help offset the cost to owners. 100% of every dollar contributed goes directly to a Veterinary Specialty Center client in need of financial assistance for their pet. 100% tax-deductible contributions to the fund can be made here. To submit a check by mail, it can be made payable to the Veterinary Care Foundation and sent to:

Veterinary Care Foundation
16550 NW 46th St.
Morriston, FL 32668

Please be sure to include that your check is for the fund at Veterinary Specialty Center, 2051 Waukegan Road, Bannockburn, IL 60015.

Our goal is to be able to offer services to families that may be otherwise forced to surrender or euthanize their pet. All requests for assistance must come through VSC. Allocation of funds is determined on a case-by-case basis by a member of our management team.

Thank you in advance for your donation. All gifts, no matter the size, are greatly appreciated.
