About Us

We work as a 100%  tax deductible, administrative cost free non profit where all the proceeds raised help those in need. Directed in part by Martin Lavander whose years of expertise in pet behavior and care have led him in the direction that best suits his passion for pets and for giving back.

All of us at the Blue Ribbon Charitable Foundation are grateful to the entire community of Indian River County.  Through your generous donations we have been able to provide every K-9 officer with state of the art bullet proof vests as well as three size kit of pet oxygen masks to all the fire rescue stations, all right here for IRC.

Mostly it’s the  people struggling financially that through PMAP we have been able to assist in providing health care for their pets suffering from various illnesses.  Working through veterinarians whom have generously donated or discounted their rates to help many of our beloved pets, dozens of Indian River County residents have taken advantage of this new and valuable service which provides funds to supplement the care their four legged friends deserve.  

Donations are our revenue source in helping those in need.  Aiding in the financial  assistance is now made easier with the launch of our new website.
