Watch Now, a 10-year tribute

More than animal welfare…

We’re in the compassion business.

Pets are more than companions; they’re family.

If you’ve ever lost a pet, your heart immediately understands. Now imagine losing a pet because of the inability to pay for surgical treatment because, well, life happens. Perhaps a fixed income, losing a spouse, being laid off or claiming bankruptcy since COVID-19 means having to say goodbye to your dog or cat even though there is a treatment. Guilt, depression, even physical ailments caused by this devastating decision are inflicted on the whole family. 

Our mission not only saves pets lives for those unable to afford to care for a pet in need, but also provides a helping hand at a time when it is needed most. The Sergei Foundation is a beacon of hope to these families in times of greatest need.
