Stephen Cline and Darcy Sanders are two Shelby natives who have started a nonprofit organization called Veterans With Pets. The purpose of this organization is to help veterans with pets with adoption and veterinary bills. The Animal Medical Center of Ontario is “ground zero,” as Cline describes it. 

Years ago, Cline had a dog who had serious health issues that were costing him a lot of money. He was a single dad raising two toddlers in the aftermath of the pandemic and the $600 vet bill was detrimental.
