Veterinary Ambassadors

Veterinary Ambassadors

Our goal at The Anti-Cruelty Society is to find a loving home for every adoptable animal in need. One of the best ways to ensure a healthy and happy life for a pet is to establish partnerships with s veterinarians in our community. Through ACS’s Veterinary Ambassadors program, we achieve this goal by connecting veterinary practices with adopters while offering additional resources to new pet owners and encouraging veterinary visits from the onset of every adoption.  

Our Veterinary Ambassador program helps grow awareness of ACS and the benefits of adopting shelter animals. The partnership also offers a tremendous amount of exposure and potential new clients to your practice. 


As a Veterinary Ambassador, you are entitled to the following benefits:

  • Listing as a Veterinary Ambassador in our ASC Magazine and Annual Report, circulation of 30,000 households 
  • Your vet practice highlighted in new adopters' packets and on our website exposing your clinic to hundreds of potential new clients to help grow your business 
  • Continued education, seminars, and networking opportunities for veterinarians, vet techs, managers,  and staff
  • Additional opportunities to partner with us during community outreach initiatives and ACS events 
  • Social media recognition on our ACS channels 

Veterinary Ambassador Requirements:
