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

  • Sweepy & Shuni

    The doctors of the Animal Medical Center saved my cat Sweepy's life and gave her another five wonderful years of life. This was my most dramatic experience with the AMC but neither my first nor last. 

  • Daisy the Guinea Pig

    Daisy, my three year old guinea pig recently had surgery at the Animal Medical Center to remove an infected toe on her front foot.  Dr. Quesenberry tried to save it with antibiotics, cream and bandages before having to perform surgery.

  • A Shih Tzu Named Shai

    We adopted Shai through 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.
