The Foundation’s goal is to extend and promote human/animal companionship and relationships through grants and sponsorships that address animal-centered social needs.  Millstein Veterinary Project® grants fund the efforts of public charities to overcome barriers to proper animal care by pet owners and animal caregivers, whether due to economic conditions or geographic access to care and are comprised of sponsorships addressing vaccination drives, wellness care,  and spay/neuter clinics.
