All dogs deserve a great home; and that’s exactly the mission of the LovePup Foundation. Since forming our partnership in 2018 when the foundation came to fruition, LovePup has come to the rescue for countless dogs. From puppies to seniors, the team has continued to come to the aid of hundreds of dogs in the short time the foundation has existed.
Founded by Blake Van Es and her husband Johnjay (a Phoenix-based DJ with a nationally-syndicated morning show), the have put their hearts, souls, passion and energy into giving the dogs they rescue a happy, healthy life. (Learn more about them in our blog here).
In 2018, we were able to provide a $50,000 initial medical grant to the LovePup Foundation. The foundation uses the grant to help ensure that all the rescue dogs have what they need to get ready for their fur-ever homes; treatment for any medical conditions, spay/neuter, and current vaccinations. The partnership takes some of the financial burden off the foundation, allowing them to focus their donation and grant funds to ensure the stability of the organization to remain open and operating. The partners at AZPetVet were humbled and honored to re-up our veterinary services medical grant for another $50,000 this year for 2019.
As a homegrown business ourselves (our first AZPetVet location opened in 1984 in Glendale, AZ), giving back is a fundamental part of our core values and mission as an organization. The partnership with LovePup creates the opportunity for our team of incredible employees to give back to our local community by utilizing their professional skills. We are thankful for our staff who lead with kindness and compassion, and we are excited for another wonderful year ahead supporting the great work of the LovePup Foundation.
