Stray Animal Program
The MVMA Charities provides financial assistance for urgent and emergent care of non-owned, unwanted, and unclaimed stray animals. By creating partnerships between local Animal Control Officers and veterinarians, the MVMAC plays an important role in getting these animals the medical care they need. Currently, funds are made available to every town and city in the commonwealth.
It is the goal of the Stray Animal Program to enlist all 351 cities and towns throughout the commonwealth to help as many animals across the state as possible.
We work to provide outreach to animal control officers and veterinarians alike. We encourage pet owners to ask their veterinarians if they partner with our program, too!
