Pets to Vets Program-Critter Crusaders Helping Our Community.

CC has a special program designed to assist our local elderly population with staying safe, while also allowing veterinary care of their pets to continue.  Our Pets to Vets program includes Frey Pet Hospital, Cedar Rapids Animal Hospital, VCA Edgewood Animal Hospital and Blairsferry Pet Hospital.  We have developed safe protocols for pick up and delivery of pets, including delivery of food and medications to assist our senior citizens who are clients of these hospitals. Here is the criteria:
*Clients must be 70 years old unless there are special exceptions.
*Critter Crusaders volunteers will pick pets up at the clients front door for scheduled vet appointments.
*Pets will be returned home in the same manner.
*Food and medications through the participating vet clinics only, can be delivered to senior clients that meet the criteria.
* CC volunteers will provide their own leashes, clients must have cats kenneled for pick up.
*All arrangements are to be made between client and vet clinic. Clients must be available by phone to speak directly with the doctors about their pet’s visit.
*CC will not accept calls for service from the public.  Each veterinary clinic will communicate with us directly for a request for service.
*Strict distancing, health and sanitizing protocols will be followed by our volunteers.
*Compliance with each veterinary clinics protocols will be followed.
*This is a FREE service through our organization.
We know you love your pets.  For their health and yours, Critter Crusaders is here to help❤️🐾

Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

Critter Crusaders would like to thank our friends at New Pioneer Coop for donating a whopping $2,300 to help pets within our medical system!  These great folks did an October Register Roundup for CC and the results surprised everyone!  One of the highest totals for a charity roundup!  We can’t thank them  and their great customers enough!  CC has multiple big cases and this has made a  tough financial road easier!  THANK YOU on behalf of the homeless pets that we serve.
