OUR MISSION

1- ... that no pet owner be forced to choose inadequate treatment or euthanasia for their animal because of inability to pay for emergency medical care.
2- ... that people who receive financial help for a veterinary emergency be given the opportunity to return their gift by becoming mentors, by volunteering for VEFM, or by supporting the VEFM fund financially.
3- ... that it is the responsibility of both the local pet-owning and veterinary communities to make emergency care available--that this is not a national responsibility but a grass-roots responsibility.
4-... that the vision of VEFM will extend to communities all across the United States, possibly even the world.

Entry Deadline is Approaching For the 2009 VEFM Calendar Photo Contest

For our first fundraising project, we are holding a photo contest for a 2009 calendar for VEFM. The theme is "Your Stories," about an emergency trip to your vet's or to an emergency hospital. The photo you submit does not need to be specifically related to the story, but should be of the same animal.


Additional details are in the October 27 blog post:
http://vefm.blogspot.com/2008/10/pet-photo-contest-for-vefm-calendar.html
The deadline for entries for the 2009 calendar is December 1, 2008. You may enter up to 10
times.

JB--Is it OK if I use one of Misty's pictures in our calendar and also a condensed version of her story?
