Our clinic is expanding! We need to raise $30,000 by the end of August to purchase necessary medical equipment to help the thousands of animals we care for.
Our on-site clinic serves two primary purposes: We provide medical assistance (spay/neuter surgeries, mass removals, amputations, treatment for infections, etc.) to more than 4,500 homeless animals each year and we provide low-cost veterinary services, through MDPetCare, to pet owners who are looking for affordable veterinary care - 7,000 clients since we opened our public clinic in 2013!
Of course, with the kind of growth we've seen over the past few years, the need for more staff, more work space and more equipment is critical. Fortunately, we have received a grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust to pay for the expansion of the clinic, and we recently welcomed our new Medical Director, Dr. Matthew Goetz, who oversees both clinics. We now have two full-time vets in our shelter clinic and one full-time vet in our public clinic. After the expansion, we will add another full-time vet to the public clinic and expand our service hours to six days a week.
The one remaining challenge we have is to purchase much needed medical equipment to enable us to help save the lives, and provide vet services, to thousands of additional animals in the future.
Below is a list of equipment we need your help with. Please help us help the animals by donating toward this crucial equipment. You can make a one-time donation, or, if you'd like to choose which equipment you'd like your donation to go to, you can do that too.
Together, we are making a huge difference in the lives of thousands of animals. Help us help them by donating today.
