We’ve got some big plans, but we need your help!

The goal of the Abandoned Pet Project is to help as many pets as possible. In addition to our adoption program, we also provide financial assistance, We would love to provide our partners, the Vet Ranch doctors, with a mobile veterinarian clinic! A mobile clinic would allow them to assist more animals in the community, ensuring they get the help they need.



Some of the things your donations help us provide through Vet Ranch are:


Lifesaving Vaccines

Vaccinations can help avoid costly treatments for diseases that can be prevented. Vaccinations prevent diseases that can be passed between animals and also from animals to people. Diseases prevalent in wildlife, such as rabies and distemper, can infect unvaccinated pets



Microchipping pets substantially increases the likelihood of that pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, unique, and permanent identification. All pets should be microchipped, and are through Vet Ranch, for this reason.



Spaying helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant or cancerous in about 50 percent of dogs and 90 percent of cats. Spaying your pet before her first heat offers the best protection from these diseases. Neutering your male companion prevents testicular cancer and some prostate problems.


Emergency Care

Unfortunately, accidents do happen. When a medical emergency befalls our furry friends, our partners are here to help save them and provide the care they need in difficult times. Regardless of the circumstances, we do everything we can to provide funding for this care.


Pet Adoptions and Fostering

Through adoptions and transport partnerships with like-minded rescues across the nation, Abandoned Pet Project Rescue provides the opportunity for our pets to live happy and healthy lives in loving, forever homes.

“We could not be more thankful for all of our supportive viewers and the awesome rescues that take over finding homes for our patients. Vet Ranch would not be possible without them!” – Vet Ranch

Without your help, these services would not be possible. We truly thank you for contributing to our cause and helping pets in need!

Vet Ranch is a YouTube Channel created by Dr. Matt Carriker in 2014. Our goal is to spread awareness of the many homeless animals in need of medical attention. It all started when he received an after-hours call to euthanize a stray dog that had been hit by a car. After picking up the dying pup from a dark road and taking it to the clinic, Dr. Matt saw a glimmer of life in her eyes and made the decision to try to save her rather than euthanizing. He pulled out his trusty iphone and began to film the process of bringing the sweet black lab back to life. 

Having built a large audience on his Youtube Channel, Demolition Ranch, Dr. Matt set his sights on using that success to kick start a second channel focused on animal rescue cases. Since starting the channel on a whim with Janie’s video, Vet Ranch has grown tremendously and we hope to be able to continue to help more and more animals every year!

In most of our cases, an animal is pulled from a euthanasia list by a rescue and then brought to Vet Ranch. We work in Partnership with Abandoned Pet Project to provide the necessary medical treatment for our patients. Once the patient is healthy enough, the rescue steps back in and helps to find a foster or a forever home. All patients are spayed or neutered, caught up on vaccinations, and started on parasite and heartworm preventatives before being released from our care. – Vet Ranch
