Hear from the VVCC Staff

"Pets play a huge role in the lives of the neighbors we serve," said VVCC's Executive Director Kent Ellsworth.
"About 1600 of our neighbors live alone and approximately 40% of them have pets that are important to their quality of life." 

"No one should ever have to face the heartbreak of surrendering a pet. They become a part of the family and in many cases, these animals are all our neighbors have. The more assistive services we can provide, the greater quality of life our neighbors can enjoy." Said Community Resources and Eligibility Coordinator Kim Meller.
