About DaisyCares

Daisy DaisyCares is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created to provide pet food, urgent or emergent fund for veterinary care, and reduce animal abuse through animal welfare education and awareness.

The organization was launched in October 2009 by Ami Gordon in honor of her beloved yorkie, Daisy. DaisyCares was created to give back the gift of life that Daisy received, and to provide hope to all needy pets.

DaisyCares founded the DaisyCares Veterinary Care Program for applicants who meet qualification. Veterinary care grants are subject to availability of funding.

Additionally, DaisyCares created the DaisyCares Pet Food Program to provide pet food to families who might otherwise be faced with the decision of abandoning or surrendering their family pets.

DaisyCares Project Kindness was created to instill responsible pet ownership at an early age through empowering presentations. In 2017, DaisyCares added Daisy’s Barn as the hands-on component to Project Kindness. The barn houses sheep, goats, and chickens. It is located at the San Antonio Food Bank.

Proceeds from the education program, Promote Animal Welfare Education or PAWedu, benefit DaisyCares programs. PAWedu was created to ensure that measures are taken to establish a community where animal cruelty is unacceptable. For more information visit www.pawedu.com

All donations to DaisyCares  programs are tax-deductible.
