Here to Give Back

In 2017, we grew as a company and as a corporate citizen. We provided much-needed veterinary care and supplies, as well as volunteer services, to animal welfare organizations, communities, people and pets in need. We invested in our associates and continued to use our resources, reach and relationships to work to strengthen the broader veterinary profession. This year, our passion for helping pets and people earned Banfield the Points of Light Civic 50 award, which honors America’s 50 leading community-minded organizations.

Wellness of Pets

We believe in making a better world for pets through preventive care education, elevation of the pet-human bond and disaster relief and preparedness.

Helping Pets Thrive

 

Wellness of Communities

Through volunteering and with programs designed to benefit local shelters and rescues, we strengthen pet-human connections in our communities.

Throughout the year, our associates participate in the Mars Volunteer Program (MVP), where we use our skills in animal care, veterinary medicine, and just plain hard work to meet the needs of vulnerable pets and help nonprofits in need. In the month of October (our spotlight month), we set extra time aside to volunteer on projects ranging from landscaping at animal shelters to packing pet food at food banks.
