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.

Our Mission

Financial hardship should not determine if a pet receives essential veterinary care. We have partnered with the AVMA and its 501c3 charitable organization to create a fund enabling our doctors to treat animals that require medical care¬†beyond the owner’s financial resources.

Imagine if you were unable to afford the cost of necessary veterinary care for your pet. Unfortunately, more and more families are faced with that dilemma.

The Chum Cat Memorial Fund, a subsidiary of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit organization, has been established to assist those families whose financial means prevent their pets from receiving needed veterinary care. Academy Animal Hospital advocates compassionate medical care for all animals in need, however, we can’t do it alone. With your support and sponsorship, we can lighten the financial burden to help get them through their family crisis.

Donate Today!

Thank you for your kindness.

We treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

No question is too big or too small for the Academy Animal Hospital team! We look forward to seeing you and your pet soon! Thank you for trusting us with your pet's care.
