An Important Update on The Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission

As my friends know, I am the official mascot of The Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission. My person writes a blog for them, just like mine. Her blog is She wanted everyone to know that VEFM did receive official, tax-exempt status from the IRS several weeks ago. However, the IRS is very slow at updating their web site, so, if anyone is disturbed by the fact they cannot find VEFM listed on the IRS list of charities, they can confirm their 501(C)3 status by calling the IRS (toll-free) at 1-877-829-5500. The corporate name is: The Veterinary Emergency Funding Mission LTD (EIN: 26-3396722)For more information, visit this page on the IRS web site:,,id=96136,00.html
