Valley Animal Hospital of Merced

We are part of your community and we give back!

We wanted to share some of the ways we at Valley Animal Hospital share and give back to our community, locally and globally, by personally volunteering and participating in Merced area projects. We also make donations towards programs and scholarships that benefit animals and people.


We also employee 25 tax-paying, hard-working residents from the Atwater and Merced area!  Through taxes, our employees help pay for the streets, police, fire department and other city/county services that we all need!


  • In 2016, we discounted over $30,000 in Veterinary Services for local animal non-profit rescue groups!  We are on track to equal that number in 2017!!  We work with New Beginnings for Animals, the Merced County SNAP Program, Big Dawgs Rescue, Merced SPCA and many more!
