The Peter Emily International Veterinary Dental Foundation (PEIVDF) invites you to become a:

By becoming a BIG 5 Benefactor, your generous contribution will help ensure that PEIVDF can continue providing vitally necessary veterinary dental care for captive exotic animals. The vast majority of the animals we treat have suffered considerable physical abuse and/or neglect, before finding themselves lucky enough to be rescued by one of the wonderful facilities at which we provide our specialized care.

Before being rescued, these animals are often brutally subdued by their previous owners, often being struck with metal bars or other hard objects. We have encountered animals with shattered molars, as well as large canines broken off and driven up into the nasal turbinates. Without treatment, these conditions are - at a minimum - extremely painful, and more often than not, life-threatening.

PEIVDF offers (5) five benefactor levels. To maintain your Big 5 Benefactor status, contributions are renewable annually.

In exchange for your generous tax-deductible* donation, you will receive:

Level 1: Cape Buffalo - $25
