Veterinarians to help pets of people with disabilities

In order to provide veterinary care for service animals owned by people with disabilities and for pet owners with financial hardships, more than 60 Georgia Veterinary Medical Association member offices in Georgia will donate 10 percent of their gross receipts on May 5 during "Paws to Help," the GVMA Annual Foundation Day.

Some of the funds raised will create scholarships for Georgia veterinary students and provide animal related assistance during disaster relief.

Veterinary professionals interested in participating can contact the GVMA office at 678-309-9800.
