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 30 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!
Valley Animal Hospital was an active part of your community in 2018!
In 2016, 2017 and 2018, we discounted over $30,000 in Veterinary Services for local animal non-profit rescue groups! We work with New Beginnings for Animals, the Merced County SNAP Program, Big Dawgs Rescue, Merced SPCA and many more!
