Animal Medical Center
Organization Description: The Animal Medical Center is a not-for-profit veterinary center that has been a national leader in animal health care since 1910. As an academic veterinary hospital, the AMC promotes the health and well-being of companion animals through advanced treatment, research and education. The AMC staff is comprised of nearly 100 veterinarians who utilize an interdisciplinary team approach combining expertise across 17 specialty areas and services to care for pets 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Central to our mission of providing the very best care to all companion animals are AMC’s compassionate programs—Charitable Community Funds—that provide free or subsidized care to pets of families suffering financial hardship. These funds include the 401K9 Fund, which provides subsidized general and emergency care for retired NYPD canines; the Seniors’ Animal Veterinary Effort (SAVE) Fund which offers financial assistance to low-income seniors and their beloved pets; the Frank V.D. Lloyd Fund for Guide Dogs to provide wellness and preventive veterinary care for the working guide dogs of clients who are visually impaired, and the Patient Assistance Fund, which provides free or subsidized care to animals requiring urgent or emergency treatment, whose owners cannot afford such services.
