Pet Hero Program Supports Animal Welfare Organizations

The number of homeless pets in the United States is staggering - the ASPCA estimates that 5-7 million animals enter animal shelters each year. The Humane Society of the United States estimates the number is closer to 6-8 million.

Thankfully, there are thousands of individuals, rescue groups, and organizations out there who work to promote the proper care of animals, decrease pet overpopulation, and find forever homes for animals in need. These people and organizations are true pet heroes.

VetDepot wants to do its part to help these pet heroes continue their admirable work and support their effort to better the lives of animals in our community.  Through its Pet Hero Program, VetDepot rewards organizations, individuals, shelters, and rescues that contribute to the welfare and proper care of animals.

If you or someone you know is a pet hero, contact VetDepot at Please include the following information in your email:
  • Name of your organization
  • Website URL
  • Contact name
  • Contact email address
  • Contact phone number

  1. Vicki and Bunny Jean: Those numbers are staggering! Unbelievable. :( But people like you, who care, are making a big difference! :) Have not been visiting as I was away, then got a bug. So, hello!

  2. What a great idea. A pet hero. I think half of Twitter could qualify for that. I see so many pals work so hard to promote different causes - what a great job they and you do BJ.

  3. Hi Ann - nice to see you again! Hope you are feeling better.

    Mario - thanks for the nod. I also think many people on twitter would benefit from this program. I hope they take advantage of it!
