Rochester Hope for Pets (formerly the MVA Hope Foundation) facilitates treatment of companion animals whose owners lacked the financial resources to provide medical care. After starting in 2008, the idea expanded to include a number of objectives, which are:
To provide funds for health care needs of companion animals whose owners are financially unable to provide such care, with a special focus on emergency and critical care patients as well as spaying and neutering of companion animals.
To bring to Rochester veterinarians the latest veterinary medical advances in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures through equipment procurement, facility modifications/additions, and continuing education.
To partner with other animal-related non-profit organizations in the area to provide funds and veterinary care for homeless, exotic, and feral animals in Monroe and surrounding counties.
To fund research projects for the welfare and advancement of companion animal medicine and nutrition.
