Dog with bowl in his mouthVeterinarians know that pets are important family members AND best friends! Families care deeply about their pets and will sometimes place their pets’ needs ahead of their own in times of financial strain. The current pandemic and associated economic downturn have worsened financial hardships on many pet-owning families in our practice area. Limited resources sometimes make for difficult family decisions, forcing to decide between essential family expenses and pet care.

To help out in these difficult times, Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital is working with the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank (ACRFB) to supply food to pets without families and to pets of families in need. 

PLEASE  HELP IF YOU CAN! Each $50 donation can feed a dog or cat in need for 6 months! Make your donation $100 and know that you saved a pet from hunger for a year.

Thanks for your support! You may have saved the life of someone’s best friend…or a future best friend!
