Veterinary Emergency Treatment (V.E.T.) Fund
The V.E.T. 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. Donations can be made in memory of pets or loved ones.
