Why Vet Ranch?
Dr Matt Carricker started Vet Ranch in 2014 in order to help animals whose owners either can’t or won’t pay for treatment. Many animals were being euthanized that didn’t need to be, so Dr. Matt decided to give as many animals as he could a second chance. Now, the organization has four veterinarians working for it and a huge online following due to the Vet Ranch videos.
Did you know that the cost of treating a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (a common dog injury) is $2000? Did you also know that over $29 billion is spent on vet fees and over the counter medication for animals each year? That’s a lot of money. Unfortunately, some people can’t afford it, or choose not to pay for treatment, even when their animal is in pain.
What does Vet Ranch do?
Vet Ranch offers treatment and rehabilitation for injured, abused neglected and ill animals. They work closely with animal rescue centers, treating animals that would otherwise be euthanized before returning them to centers for adoption once they are recovered.
Via its hugely popular Vet Ranch YouTube channel, Vet Ranch raises awareness of animals in need and how they can be helped with a little time, money and care. Since its inception, Vet Ranch has grown to focus on helping homeless animals recover from injury or diseases that would either lead to euthanasia or prevent them from being adopted.
Vet Ranch has ‘We’re Gonna Fix ‘Em All’ as its mission. The team believe that every animal has a right to a healthy, happy life and through donating their time, expertise and care, they help as many dogs, cats and furry critters have a second chance at life.
