About the Fund

The Animal Medical Center has been a national leader in animal care since 1910. Our mission lies in promoting the health and well-being of companion animals through advanced treatment, research and education. For years, AMC’s Community Funds have assisted those in need by providing subsidized healthcare for their pets. 

Recently, The AMC established a new Community Fund called AMC TO THE RESCUE. This fund was established specifically to provide subsidized specialty care to animals currently cared for by rescue groups, whose health has become an obstacle to their adoption.  

The Animal Medical Center understands the plight of those who operate rescue groups and the often limited funds available for treatment of animals beyond general care. Therefore, through AMC TO THE RESCUE, we have provided a means for some of these needy animals to receive care. Please note that the funds for this program are limited, therefore, we can only accept a finite number of cases per year.  

Please note: This fund is currently only available to rescue groups in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Pet Stories

A Shih Tzu Named Shai

We adopted Shai though a foster family to discover she was mostly blind from abuse. Only months later, her retina detached and she became fully blind. This brave and small Shih Tzu still acclimated well, until she suffered a stroke. We came home to a normally snuggly pup who that day could not get up off of her side. 

Kugel's Story

Kugel found us or we found Kugel only a few years ago - not sure how the story starts. But, since we first got Kugel she was very sick. The fabulous Dr. Kim Alexander helped us determine it was gastric lymphoma. 

Katie's Story

Thanks to Dr. Chick Weisse, Katie will turn 3 this October. Katie was diagnosed with a liver shunt at 3 months old. Dr. Weisse put her on medications till she was old enough to have the surgery correct her problem.
