In addition to my duties here as CRA Officer, in my spare time I serve as treasurer and as a volunteer and foster home for an animal rescue organization.

I've come in contact with many programs that offer free vet services in low income areas. Some of these programs have found that many times low income residents can't afford vet services for animals, thus cat and dog populations in these communities can become a nuisance. Also, they found that many times low income residents will often spend any money they have on their pets, because sometimes the pet is the only friend or family or possession they have.
In short, these programs can benefit not only the animals, but also benefit the lives of low-income residents and the low income community by controlling the pet population.
My question is, if my bank donated to such a program, is this something the OCC would be likely to give credit as Community Development?
