World Vets

Kirkwood Animal Hospital: Giving Back Globally

California newlyweds, Aron Cooperman & Lainey Hu share a love for animals.  Lainey is a veterinarian at Kirkwood Animal Hospital and Aron is an engineer and professional photographer at Open Light Photo.  Together they live in San Jose with their Australian Kelpies, Dally and Cricket (pictured above).  For their big day they asked friends & family to contribute to World Vets and help animals in need around the globe!

The generous pair had a destination wedding in Ambergris Caye, Belize and plan to celebrate with a stateside reception in July of 2015.  Lainey explained that for their big day, she and Aron wanted to give back while encouraging their wedding guests to do the same.  “World Vets is an organization that not only helps more unfortunate countries, but also incorporates teaching students, doctors and technicians alike,” Lainey said of choosing World Vets as a donation recipient.  “It just made sense.”

Lainey began her involvement with World Vets in 2013, when she participated in an Equine project that provided aid to horses in Granada, Nicaragua.  “What better way to see the world and do something more than just sightseeing,” she said of her volunteer experience.  So far, friends & family of Aron and Lainey have raised over $400 in honor of the couple.  All funds raised by this event directly benefits World Vets and goes towards the care of animals that would otherwise have no access to life-saving treatment.

The World Vets team is honored that Aron and Lainey made us a part of their special day. We would like to congratulate them on their recent marriage and thank them for their continued support of World Vets’ mission to improve the health and well being of animals worldwide.

Kirkwood Animal Hospital: Giving Back to the Bay Area Community

Snap, Crackle, Pop (see their pictures below) are just three of the kittens that have found refuge at #SVPP! We’d like to give a big thank you to Kirkwood Animal Hospital for boarding their teeny-tiny mama who was brought in as a pregnant stray to ensure a safe delivery.

The kittens are all healthy and will soon be available for adoption. But if these precious little ones have already caught your eye, fill out an application today!

Silicon Valley Pet Project

Silicon Valley Pet Project is a nonprofit organization of volunteers committed to saving local at-risk shelter pets through rescue, community involvement and education.

The Silicon Valley Pet Project board is a group of like-minded professionals with the passion and motivation to save pets from our municipal shelter, San Jose Animal Care Center. Our mission is to create a new kind of animal rescue organization – one that will have a large impact on our local shelter pets, one that engages and educates the community in new ways, and one that applies sustainable business practices so that the organization will last for years to come.

Inspired by Best Friends Animal Society and Austin Pets Alive and their best practices, Silicon Valley Pet Project was founded in 2014.
