Pumpkin Fundraiser

The Pumpkin Fundraiser is a charitable fund account managed by our hospital to be used for pets in our hospital’s community. We encourage and support our hospital to be involved with our local community and help people and pets in need. As a hospital, we are not only a community of veterinary professionals, but also a community of animal lovers who want to help pay it forward to our clients, patients, and people. 

Who is Pumpkin? Pumpkin was PEVC’s beloved clinic cat! Many of you likely know who he is and the positive impact he made in the clinic. Unfortunately, he is no longer with us, but his name will be present in years to come during fundraisers.
