V.E.T. Fund !


The V.E.T. (Veterinary Emergency Treatment) Fund was established in 2012 by Dr. Jeff Smith.  The Fund gives loving pet owners the means to save their best friend when they are unable to make full payment in times of a pet's sudden illness or emergency treatment.  The Community Foundation has been able to work with the Danville Area Humane Society to make these funds available to individuals in the community.  


Ryan was a senior citizen when he was adopted from the Danville Humane Society, a few

years ago. He started having some medical issues, and

the V.E.T. fund paid for tests and treatment. Ryan is a handsome boy, and thanks to the V.E.T. Fund, Ryan is doing quite well again.
