Because healthy pets make the world a better place.
At Bayer, our mission of Science For a Better Life is more than a tagline — it’s a commitment to improving lives, both yours and your clients' pet's. And it fuels our passion to advocate for pets in our community — because we believe every pet deserves a healthy, comfortable and happy life. We recognize that pets enhance our lives in so many ways, and we make it a priority to return that favor through the programs and causes we actively support. We’re proud of our long-standing support of the veterinary profession and animals and people they care for through partnerships with a variety of non-profits and organizations.

Committed to advancing veterinary science.
Vector-borne diseases are a growing global threat. Well-known diseases such as Lyme borreliosis, babesiosis and leishmaniasis are transmitted by blood-feeding ectoparasites like ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and sand flies, and in some cases also have zoonotic consequences. Bayer Animal Health is a specialist in the field of parasite prevention and a proud supporter of the CVBD World Forum. This group of leading international experts meet at least once a year at the International CVBD Symposium to discuss current scientific findings, future trends and needs concerning the distribution, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and prevention of companion animal vector-borne diseases.
A safe place for families and pets.
Bayer is a proud partner supporting the pet shelter at Rose Brooks Center, the first domestic violence shelter in its region to welcome the pets of women and children seeking a safe haven from abuse.
The idea for Paws Place Shelter at the Rose Brooks Center was born when a woman arrived at the shelter after being beaten nearly to death by her boyfriend. Her 110-pound Great Dane had protected her by lying on top of her during the attack, taking a majority of the blows and suffering many broken bones. The woman refused to abandon her dog and, knowing her life was in danger, the center agreed to take in its first family pet.
Rose Brooks Center is about saving lives, and Bayer is honored to support Paws Place Shelter to help ensure that families and their pets can heal together.
Helping dogs help America's veterans.
K9 Advantix® II from Bayer is proud to be the Official Flea and Tick Preventive of K9s For Warriors. This non-profit organization pairs specially-trained shelter dogs with post-9/11 American veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to help them return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
We're proud to partner with Adopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website, connecting good people with great pets from more than 17,000 animal shelters and rescues across the U.S. and Canada.
