OVRS (Oakland Veterinary Referral Services) believes charitable giving and community involvement is an important responsibility. That’s why we are dedicated to the Southeastern Michigan veterinary communities through involvement both as individual citizens and as a hospital. OVRS is pleased to have founded The Emergency Animal Relief (TEAR) foundation, a non-profit organization initiated by the support staff and management of OVRS.
TEAR's main objectives:
To provide charitable funding for emergency medical care for sick and injured animals brought in by “Good Samaritans”
To provide support to qualified clients in need of financial assistance by providing emergency grants to help supplement the cost of care
To sponsor clinic research for the advancement of veterinary medicine
To enhance community education of veterinary medicine
