What We Do

Gwendolyn’s Wish helps pet owners who need financial assistance and reside in the following areas: City of Williamsburg, James City County, upper York County and eastern New Kent County.

Basic Veterinary Care

We will cover the cost of a veterinary exam and standard vaccines for dogs or cats.

Spay or Neuter Surgery

We will cover the cost of a spay or neuter surgery.

Medical Treatment

For any other veterinary care needed, we must evaluate it on a case-by-case basis and cost is a significant factor in our decision. Unfortunately, as a young organization, we don’t have the money to pay for expensive surgeries or ongoing medicines (like insulin for diabetes).

Please note that any payments for services are made directly to the veterinary clinic. We will not pay for surgeries or treatments that have already occurred without our involvement.


If needed, we will provide transportation for the pet to and from a veterinary clinic.

Pet Supplies

When pet supplies are donated to us (like food, beds, flea preventative, etc.) we make them available to the pet owners we are helping.
