Nashville Veterinary Specialists and Veterinary Care Foundation have joined forces to create the NVS CARES Fund, a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation, for the purpose of providing financial assistance to pet owners in need. For every dollar donated to the NVS CARES Fund, 100 percent is used to treat sick or injured animals. Your donations will not be used for administrative fees or salaries. They will only be used to help pets in need.

How Funds Are Used

NVS CARES funds are available for patients being treated at the NVS hospital and are used solely toward:

  • Medical care for Good Samaritan cases

  • Assistance for pet owners in demonstrated financial crisis

  • Medical care for pets harmed or displaced due to local disaster

In order to receive assistance from the NVS CARES Fund, clients must have exhausted all other payment options - Care Credit (or any other payment program), credit cards, family and friends.

How to Help

When you donate to the NVS CARES Fund, 100 percent of your tax-deductible gift will support the medical care of pets in need. To donate to the NVS CARES Fund, click the link below!

NVS Cares Funds are granted to eligible pets who have received a doctor examination by one of our veterinarians and whose prognosis is favorable. Patients with a chronic or life-limiting illness such as diabetes, congestive heart failure, cancer, or senior patients requiring major surgery are not eligible.

Funds are not intended to cover the entire cost of treatment by NVS.
