In times of need, we strive to help those who have given so much of what they have to help animals in need. We have regularly available resources to send clients, including a checklist when preparing your practice for a storm and an aid listing to help professionals whose time is spent caring for others.

When tragedy strikes, the FVMA Foundation is proud to work on the front lines and behind the scenes to help veterinary professionals get back on their feet. A major contributor to helping restore practices and rescue animals during natural events like hurricanes, the FVMA Foundation strives to maintain the veterinary medical profession during tough times.
Donations to the FVMA Foundation help us fund our rescue and rebuilding initiatives, and go directly to veterinary professionals when they need it most.

Florida veterinarians and animal health technicians have volunteered to assist animal owners and local officials in responding to animal emergencies. The Florida Veterinary Corps is recruiting more volunteers to help protect our state.
The FVMA is assisting the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in maintaining the roster of volunteers and serves as the point of contact for calling volunteers after a disaster.
