Rochester Hope for Pets facilitates treatment of companion animals whose owners lacked the financial resources to provide medical care. Founded 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 .
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.
