Making a difference
Since 1992, the GVMA Foundation has worked tirelessly on behalf of animals in Georgia. From education to support for pet owners with limited economic resources or the disaster-affected, and animals who serve and protect our communities, The GVMA Foundation is making a difference in the lives of animals and their people across Georgia and beyond.

To promote the stewardship of animals and their environments, to support public education and awareness of veterinary care, and to provide assistance programs for underserved animals.
Together, by effectively achieving our goals on behalf of animals who have no voice, and through the power of education and advocacy, we can eliminate suffering for the animals in our community and throughout the world.
Our programs will range from the global - emergency preparedness, disaster relief, and public education about what veterinarians do for animals (also known as One Health) - to the individual – medical care for abandoned animals, those owned by the elderly, and animals who serve the public health.
