History

In 2005, a pet owner brought a dog named
Ladybug to the Fort Collins Veterinary
Emergency Hospital for medical treatment.
While there, Ladybug's owner became highly
aware of the challenges that many pet owners
face when confronted by the unexpected costs
of emergency veterinary care.

Ladybug's owner made a generous donation,
which was earmarked to help other pet owners
with financial hardship to offset the cost of
emergency veterinary care. Hence, the
Ladybug Fund was born. In 2007, the Fund
was approved as a 501(c)3 nonprofit
organization by the IRS, and all
contributions are now tax
deductible as a result.

Since then, hundreds of
dogs and cats have
received life-saving
emergency veterinary
care—thanks to generous
donations to the Ladybug Fund.

100% of your contribution will pay for emergency care for the pets of clients with a financial hardship.
