Society for California Veterinary Vaccine Care ("SCVVC")
"HELPING PROTECT PETS AND PEOPLE"
The SCVVC is a Non-Profit 501 (c)(3) organization which is dedicated to improving pet and wild animal health, safety, and welfare; broadening public awareness and interest in animal-related issues; and providing vital education to pet owners and to the general public.
Our mission is to save lives by promoting responsible pet ownership through public education and awareness, providing resources for all pet-related issues, providing rescue and adoption of abandoned and neglected animals, providing assistance at disaster-hit areas, and providing free and low-cost spaying, neutering, vaccinating, microchipping, and other important pet health care for family pets, homeless pets, and other animals.
Dr. and Mrs. Kopit provided caring and compassionate health care to pets at their private veterinary practice in Orange County, California for more than 20 years. In 2006, the Kopits began their journey to help more animals and people by providing free and low-cost mobile pet health care services in communities throughout several Southern California counties which were in desperate need of same. The combination of the need for these services and the need for public education led to the formation of the SCVVC in 2011.
In August 2014 after months of diligent work, the Kopits completed the conversion of their personal 40' motor home into a mobile spay, neuter, and disaster response unit and donated it to the SCVVC so that it could continue its mission protecting pets and people.
The SCVVC is seeking grants and donations to maintain the day-to-day operational expenses of the mobile unit so that it may achieve its mission to help so many in need. Your support is extremely appreciated. Contributions to the SCVVC are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. (Federal Taxpayer Identification Number 45-2483357). 100% of all donations are used to benefit animals. No proceeds from donations are used for administrative costs. Please help us meet our steadily increasing costs of medical supplies, medicine, food, bedding, and shelter for those less fortunate animals in desperate need of care.
Donations can be made through the secured PayPal link on the "Make a Donation" page of this website, or checks can be made payable to the "SCVVC" and mailed to: P.O. Box 974, Yorba Linda, CA, 92885. For information on becoming a volunteer with our organization, or if you need more information about our organization or services, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for partnering with us through caring and sharing.

Deborah Kopit, an experienced equestrian and animal handler, has worked side by side with her husband Todd since 1992 when they took over the family veterinary practice in Orange County, California. Together they have worked at animal emergency hospitals, performed multiple fund-raising events which have benefitted both domestic and wild animals, and have worked hand-in-hand in promoting animal safety and welfare through numerous private and governmental agencies. They continue to work together, providing special personal attention to every pet and owner at their mobile clinics. When the Kopits are not working at their clinics, they enjoy spending their "spare" time with their family which includes their grown children and their horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, tortoises, and birds.
OUR TEAM MEMBERS:
The entire SCVVC support staff is extremely caring and dedicated, striving to make a positive difference in the general welfare of animals and people.
The SCVVC team is always willing to answer questions of pet owners. Their goals are to help promote healthy relationships between pets and their adoptive families through proper education and application.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to provide these much needed services to the public, and we look forward to meeting you and your "extended family members" at our upcoming clinics and other events!
Thank you for caring and being the most important part of your pet's life.
