Welcome to Helping Kids and Pets — a terrific new way to help both animals and kids who need it the most!

At VCA Charities, we support worthy organizations that directly help pets in need, and we provide educational programs promoting veterinary medicine for the treatment and prevention of cruelty to animals. For Helping Kids and Pets, we've teamed up with Project OneSong, a wonderful non-profit organization that teaches at-risk inner-city kids empathy and compassion as an alternative to violence.

Project OneSong singer/songwriter Kevin McCourt and his amazing musician friends have created a brand new song, "I'll Take Care of You (The VCA Song)" to do two things: to help VCA Charities raise awareness and money for animal welfare, and to help Project OneSong in their mission to help disadvantaged youths. The song is available for download for a small donation. All proceeds from the sale will be divided equally so both organizations can keep up their great work.

You can read more about both groups right here on this site. Together, and with your help, we can improve the lives of both pets and people!
