Chum Cat Memorial Fund

The fund has been named in memory of our beloved cat, Chum, who graced this hospital for 18 years until his passing in 2015.

Chumcat Fund

Academy Animal Hospital created the Chumcat Fund in partnership with the Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, to expand our efforts to help pets in need. Since the foundation’s operating expenses are funded through Academy Animal Hospital’s membership dues, 100% of every dollar donated to the Chumcat Fund is used to treat sick or injured animals.

How the Funds Are Used 

The Chumcat Fund is made available to pets being treated at Academy Animal Hospital, Donations are generally restricted to the following: 

  • Funding for Good Samaritan cases 
  • Care for police/fire and service animals 
  • Funding for abandoned pets 
  • Assistance for pet owners in financial crisis 
  • Emergency and medical care for lost or injured pets 
  • Care for pets harmed or displaced by natural disasters 
  • Financial assistance for special needs pets and owners 
  • Support local and regional animal rescue organizations 
  • Funding recipients must demonstrate that other payment options have been exhausted, including:

When you make a donation to the Chumcat Fund, 100% of your tax-deductible gift will support the care of pets in need. To reach out and help, please donate through our secure online process.
