VIP Petcare and Pets for Patriots Announce Partnership to Serve Veterans

Partnership Focuses on Providing Accessible Preventative Veterinary Care to Adopted Pets

WINDSOR, CA--(Marketwired - December 07, 2016) - VIP Petcare, the leader in veterinary pet wellness care, and Pets for Patriots, an organization that unites veterans with overlooked shelter dogs and cats, today announced a partnership designed to provide long-term companionship, health and happiness for pets. The partnership provides veterans who adopt through Pets for Patriots with a 10 percent discount on all services and prescription products administered at a VIP Petcare Community Clinic.

VIP Petcare provides the highest standard of pet preventative veterinary services through a network of over 2,500 community clinics in 31 states. From its initial start over twenty years ago in California, the company has continued to expand its services and locations in an effort to realize its mission of extending the availability of high-value pet preventative and wellness veterinary services to all pet owners. The clinics are conveniently located at neighborhood pet stores, feed stores and other host locations in communities throughout the regions. VIP Petcare's services include vaccinations, diagnostic testing, microchipping with free nationwide registration included, and prescription parasite prevention and medications. The clinics are scheduled for specific times at host locations on both weekends and weeknights, and do not require an appointment.

Pets for Patriots, founded by Executive Director Beth Zimmerman, helps United States military veterans adopt a new pet friend while giving the most overlooked, undervalued shelter dogs and cats hope and a home. Pets for Patriots serves military veterans at all stages, including retirees. The organization works with shelters and veterinary partners to ensure the new pet parents have the ability to afford care for their new companions throughout their life.

"The partnership with VIP Petcare will help to reduce the overall costs of pet guardianship and provide much-needed support for new adoptions," said Beth Zimmerman, executive director and chief executive officer of Pets for Patriots. "Thanks to the generosity of VIP Petcare, the new relationship between veterans and their pets will get a healthy start through their discounts offered for veterinary services."

"At VIP Petcare we believe in ensuring that every pet has access to the highest standard of preventative and wellness veterinary care. We are honored to be able to support veterans while fulfilling this mission," says Will Santana, CEO and Founder VIP Petcare. "Pets for Patriots does amazing work to unite pets with veterans, creating lifelong companionship.
