Money well spent
As you can see, 95% of the funds donated to Virden Pet Network go directly to the animals we help - their veterinary care, food and supplies.
We can achieve this efficiency because no money is spent on a shelter building, overhead, salaries, or vehicles. Everything is provided by VPN volunteers who open up their homes, use their own cars for vet appointments, and often buy supplies for foster pets.
So your financial gift to VPN goes a long way. And because we are a registered charity, all donations over $20 receive a tax receipt.
