BirchBark Foundation


BirchBark Foundation (BBF) protects and honors the human-animal bond in the central California counties of Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito. Their focus is on providing financial assistance to economically vulnerable families who simply can’t afford the lifesaving care their pet needs. By helping these families with crisis veterinary care, BBF saves innocent lives and keeps families together. In addition, BBF honors the critical bond with animals through its Pet Loss and Grief Support and Education programs, which are available to the animal-loving public in Central California. BBF recognizes that the bond between an animal and its people is one of the most treasured gifts and strives daily to use its voice to protect and honor that bond.

Funded in 2021

grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will help BirchBark provide financial assistance to approximately 30 senior dogs in need of emergency dental care. These funds will ensure that senior dogs like Ludy have many more wonderful years together with their loving families.
