Knowing the location and contact information for your local Animal ER in advance of an emergency happening can prove life saving. The resources linked below have searchable databases for locating Animal ERs throughout North America and in certain other countries, too. These resources are valuable not just when you're close to home, but also when an emergency occurs while on vacation with your pets.

VECCS is a membership society of veterinarians involved with emergency and critical care for animals. Their missions are to raise the standard of care provided to animals in emergency and critical care situations, and to assure that all animals in need receive the best care possible.
