The VetBros Pet Education Charitable Fund will be hosting this event.

The VetBros Pet Education Charitable Fund encourages community members to make tax-deductible charitable contributions to this organization by visiting http://vetbrospeteducation.org and clicking the donate button.
The VetBros Pet Education Charitable Fund is a 501c3 organization that contributes considerable time and money each year to local animal health-related charitable endeavors in Carol Stream and the greater Chicago area. This charitable organization helps veterinarians be empowered to provide charitable care to those in need right here in our community, including disabled veterans requiring a service dog, low income senior citizens, Good Samaritans who rescue domesticated animals, and victims of domestic violence. We are excited to play an even bigger role in our community by being able to help more pets and people undergoing hardships.

Carol Stream Animal Hospital (CSAH) has a longstanding commitment to improving the well- being of animals and people in the Carol Stream community and the greater Chicago area. The Annual CSAH Charity Dog Show is a fun community event to help celebrate our furry friends. The event provides an amazing experience for dog owners to learn about different industries that can help their pets in a variety of ways. Our clinic invites all members of the community to support the Charity Dog Show by participating in an event, making a charitable donation, or simply attending. Prizes will be awarded for a variety of categories, including best trick, best costume, best senior dog and more. The number of pet owners unable to afford veterinary care for their animal companions grows every day. Many pet owners make the difficult choice to forgo veterinary care because they cannot afford the cost of care. Sensitive to the needs of pets and their owners, concerned and compassionate veterinary professionals are constantly searching for new ways to provide charitable veterinary services. The VetBros Pet Education Charitable Fund helps pet owners get the veterinary services they need to keep their furry friends healthy and happy. Helping members of the community care for their pets improves the overall quality of life in the community.
The Carol Stream Animal Hospital Charity Dog Show is held on the third Sunday in September. All proceeds from the Charity Dog Show will go to the VetBros Pet Education Charitable Fund.
