American Veterinary Medical Foundation

VCCF - white vetical logoThe team at Massachusetts Veterinary Referral Hospital would like to share some good news with our devoted clients.  We recently enrolled in the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund, a program of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF).  The program was created to support veterinarians who provide medical services to the lost, neglected and abused animals that find their way into our hospital.  The program also allows us to care for animals in our community when their owners face extraordinary hardships.
We invite you to support us in this new endeavor by making a donation to the AVMF for pets in need.
