BluePearl Cares organization logo

BluePearl Cares is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to delivering on our mission of making emergency and specialty veterinary care accessible for all.

Through grants and programs, the impact on the lives of pets needing specialty or emergency care is expanding to the most vulnerable in rural communities, veterinary deserts and urban centers. As a public charity, BluePearl Cares exists because of donations made in BluePearl hospitals, through BluePearl clients and online from generous supporters who are committed to improving the lives of pets.

Our stories.

While BluePearl Cares is new, our ability to mobilize veterinary care and help pets in need is not, thanks to BluePearl Associates volunteering at home and in under-resourced communities throughout the country.

"Volunteer trips give me purpose and meaning and fuels a fire within me to help more people and their pets. Each clinic I’ve participated in proves how important veterinary care is and what a real difference we can make for families in need."

– Despina Najarian, CVT (Boston, MA)
