VCA Charities Pet Food Pantry

Launched in June 2010 in Venice, CA, VCA Charities' Pet Food Pantry provides pet food to the clients of food pantries. It is co-sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition. The VCA Charities Pet Food Pantry allows pets to get the necessary proper nutrition to stay healthy.


Grants awarded semi-annually to five veterinarians, residents or technicians who travel to Playa del Carmen and Bacalar, Mexico as part of a 30-member ViDAS delegation to provide primary care and control animal overpopulation through spaying and neutering.
