5 great ways you can help animals in need this holiday

'Tis the season! With the new year right around the corner, you may already be making plans and resolutions for 2023. Whether these include travelling, learning a new skill, or drinking more water – you can put helping animals in desperate need of veterinary care on your list.

Here are 5 ways you can make a meaningful difference..

As the war in Ukraine continues, and infrastructure like power and heat are destroyed, communities and animal shelters are struggling to keep warm throughout the holidays and cold winter months ahead. You can ensure that on-the-ground shelters receive life-saving generators that will keep the heat on for dogs, cats, and more animals this winter.


Show your loved ones how much you care by sending them an adorable, animal-themed holiday e-card that will go directly towards VWB/VSF programs that provide critical veterinary care and more. (*To view all e-card designs, simply select the "In Dedication" section on the donation form).


Make meaningful travel part of your travel plans in 2023. Whether you're a veterinarian, veterinarian technician, student, or interested in using your other skills to volunteer for animals and communities in need — there's a position for you with VWB/VSF. Check out our current openings!


Whether it's your holiday party, birthday, anniversary, or another special occasion, show your family and friends how much you care about animals in need by launching your very own Facebook fundraiser. It's simple! Learn how here.


Put advocacy on your new year's resolution list! Speak up for animals in need around the world by simply telling others about how much access to veterinary care means to you. Share some of our latest work across your social media channels.
