About Us

One Health Organization > About Us

We are professionals, volunteers, and donors. You can trust that we care about the health of people, animals, and the environments where they interact.

Our Programs

Our Programs are designed to help household members with caring for the pets they love. In addition to conducting research and providing education, we offer financial assistance to cover the cost of veterinary bills for vulnerable people, such as seniors and people with disabilities, and offer a wide range of resources.

Our Donors and Volunteers

Donors and Volunteers are the heroes. They support the day-to-day work of staff and make our entire organization possible. Last year alone we had over 30 Volunteers giving 30,000 hours and 137 Donors. This allowed us to serve over 106 households living with at least one dog or cat. Our Donors and Volunteers are responsible for improving lives and making all the difference in their communities.

Our Experience

With nearly a quarter century of experience in biology, genetics, research, and veterinary medicine, our founder, Dr. Anna, believes that preventing the spread of diseases between animals and people is essential to creating a healthy community.

Through her training and experience, Dr. Anna has been able to create a large network of veterinarians and others to help provide services to animals and people in need.

Our Mission

To develop, sustain, and nurture healthy bonds between animals and people.

Our Vision

We envision a world in which animals and people can live healthy lives, together.

Our Purpose

One Health Organization exists to create sustainable, equitable, affordable healthcare systems to benefit the health of animals, people, and environments, as they relate to veterinary medicine.
