Veterinary professionals that are here to help our neighbors in need.

The Mitzvah Fund provides quality care for companion animals of low-income seniors, low-income Vermont veterans, our unhoused neighbors and low-income disabled first responders. We provide surgical or dental care for one animal per household per year.  Additionally, we provide an exam, vaccinations, necessary diagnostics and radiographs. PLEASE NOTE- We DO NOT provide day to day chronic care and we DO NOT HANDLE EMERGENCIES. We refer our clients back to their established veterinarians for on going care.  Please understand that funding is limited and these limits have been placed so every neighbor in need can get a chance to receive essential care for their beloved pet. 

Are you a low-income veteran, senior (age 55+) or disabled first responder? Are you currently unhoused and working with a case manager or shelter?​ If so, you may qualify for our services. Click the button below to find out more and fill out our application online.


The Mitzvah Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Central Vermont. We are a small but mighty group of veterinary professionals. We strive to help the less fortunate by providing low-cost, compassionate veterinary care to qualified recipients.


We primarily take referrals from other veterinary hospitals or answer the calls of social service agencies. We do all of our own veterinary work in our fully equipped Mobile Veterinary Surgical & Dental Clinic. We provide advanced anesthesia monitoring including ECG, Oxygen Saturation (SPO2), Doppler Blood Pressure, Capnography & Temperature. We can take full body or dental radiographs on board and will forward them to regular veterinarians and specialists for follow up care. 


We want to support our neighbors facing economic hardship with quality compassionate care for their companion animals. Since 2012, we have assisted approximately 1000 animals in need of medical assistance.
