Pender Pet Caring Foundation

Raising the Bar for Veterinary Medicine and Education

The Pender Pet Caring Foundation is a non-profit, philanthropic organization focused on improving veterinary patient care through humane, non-lethal research and extending care to animals in need. Through supporting medical research, pet adoption programs and the treatment of sick or injured strays and indigent animals, the Pender Pet Caring Foundation seeks to improve and expand upon developments in animal care.

The Pender Pet Caring Foundation is dedicated to strengthening the human-animal bond locally and nationwide.  To support its mission, the Pender Pet Caring Foundation sells memorial bricks that can be placed in the Pender Memorial Park and accepts donations from generous pet lovers from across the country.  PPCF’s donors have been touched by deep relationships with their pets and know personally how a loving pet can assist, provide therapy, or even heal.  Many PPCF donors have worked closely with the doctors and staff of Pender Veterinary Centre in Fairfax, Virginia to help their sick or injured pets.

For more information about the Pender Pet Caring Foundation, to purchase a memorial brick, or to donate please contact Ruth Faulkner at 703-591-3304.

You can also purchase a memorial brick by filling out this online order form.

We also look for programs that understand and help further and enhance the human-animal bond. We are proud to support some truly exceptional programs, including:
