WE WELCOME AND APPRECIATE DONATIONS!
The SCVVC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation seeking grants and private donations to help us continue providing services to meet the growing health care needs of pets, especially to those pets whose families are unable to afford the usual cost of vaccines and other preventive health care for their beloved pets, and for orphaned and homeless animals who must depend on people such as you for their care and safety.
One of the goals of our organization is to provide free vaccines and other free health care services to those animals in need, which will ultimately reduce the spread of disease, reduce the amount of surrendered and euthanized animals, and increase the amount of adoptions.
We welcome all monetary contributions and donated items such as new pet toys, beds, blankets, dishes, leashes, collars, harnesses, carriers, food, etc.
We also accept other donated items and services which can be auctioned or sold through our special fundraising events! 100% of ALL proceeds goes directly for the benefit of animals!
ANY DONATION YOU ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE WILL HELP MAKE A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN HELPING SAVE AN ANIMAL'S LIFE! ALL DONATIONS ARE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND APPRECIATED BY ALL! ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY!
It's all about helping the community, which in turn, helps animals ... or is it all about helping animals, which in turn, helps the community? Either way, the SCVVC helps many, in many ways!
ABOUT THE SOCIETY FOR CALIFORNIA VETERINARY VACCINE CARE:
Our non-profit organization was formed to help communities, animal shelters, and other public, governmental and private entities achieve goals relating to animal health, care, and welfare, and human health and safety, while also assisting the general public and governmental bodies in becoming compliant with certain requirements relating to local and state ordinances, regulations, and laws.
The intent of our services is to provide an opportunity to the general public to acquire and maintain certain preventive health care for their pets at little or no cost to them, making it especially helpful to those who are on limited or fixed incomes. The services are also intended to provide convenient times and locations to pet owners such as in the evenings and on weekends, which reduce or eliminate the need for pet owners to take time off work to procure such services.
Some of our services include administering Rabies vaccinations which are mandatory in the State of California, as well as implanting identification microchips which are now mandated by many city and/or county ordinances, but which might not be afforded by many pet owners. We hope to be able to provide Rabies vaccinations, other vaccinations, and microchipping to income-qualified pet owners at no cost in the near future!
Our services will help decrease the spread of disease to animals and humans; assist in decreasing the amount of unwanted, abused and/or surrendered pets; assist in properly addressing behavioral problems; assist in procuring required pet licensing which in turn helps generate revenue for departments of animal services which is so crucial to help house unwanted pets and maintain the facilities; assist in promoting awareness of important public health alerts concerning companion/domestic animal and wildlife related issues; promote relationships between veterinarians and pet owners; and assist organizations and schools which provide continuing education to veterinarians and free animal-related services to the pubic.
Our staff regularly attends vaccinology and other pet health-related seminars and meetings to keep apprised of the latest statistics and preventive medicine, and we work closely with various animal and human health departments to provide the best services possible and to ensure the safe and productive operation of all of our clinics.
ABOUT THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA VETERINARY VACCINE CLINIC:
In September 2008, approximately 2 1/2 years prior to the formation of the Society for California Veterinary Vaccine Care, the Southern California Veterinary Vaccine Clinic was established to help meet the growing needs of the community by providing affordable vaccinations to dogs and cats through mobile pet clinics in multiple counties. Without dispute, this preventive health care is extremely important to the health and welfare of both animals and humans.
Since the commencement of the mobile vaccine clinics, Dr. Todd Kopit and a caring and compassionate staff have successfully worked with multiple local governmental agencies and other entities to ensure that all clinics were conducted in a safe and beneficial manner to all concerned, and they have further dedicated their efforts to ensure the continued operation of these mobile clinics as a community service to the public.
ABOUT THE VETERINARIAN & STAFF:
Dr. Todd Kopit volunteered his services through the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association ("SCVMA") at city and county sponsored vaccination clinics for over 20 years. He is a past President of the Orange County Chapter of the SCVMA, and he has a long personal and family history of support for the veterinary profession through the SCVMA and other animal-affiliated organizations. Dr. Kopit's love and compassion for animals and his dedication to help animals and their owners is unparalleled.
Dr. and Mrs. Kopit (an experienced equestrian and dog trainer), have worked together since 1992 in their family veterinary practice ("Stanton Pet Hospital") in Orange County, California. Together they have worked at animal emergency facilities, performed multiple fund-raising events in various counties in California which have benefitted both domestic and wild animals, and have worked hand-in-hand in promoting animal safety and welfare through many animal affiliated and non-animal affiliated agencies. They continue to work together providing personal attention and excellent service to every pet and owner at their low-cost vaccination clinics. When the Kopits are not working at their clinics, they enjoy spending their "spare" time with their family which includes their two sons, daughter, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, tortoises and birds.
The mobile and hospital staff, including Dr. Kopit's associate veterinarians, are extremely caring and dedicated, each having multiple pets of their own. Most of our staff also volunteer their services at various rescue and other animal affiliated organizations, striving to help care for any animal in need.
Dr. Kopit and his "team" are always willing to answer questions of pet owners. They make it a point to help educate pet owners about the importance of preventive medicine and the need for routine veterinary care. A list of SCVMA member veterinarians in close proximity to the mobile vaccine clinics is available to pet owners at each clinic. Also, for the convenience of pet owners, licensing is available at all shelter-located clinics and at most other clinic locations.
We are very excited to be able to provide these much needed services to the public and look forward to meeting you and your "extended family members" at our upcoming clinics!
Thank you for caring and being the most important part of your pet's life.
