Help More Marleys
It’s dizzying how fast our 25th anniversary year has flown by; here we are almost at year-end staying busy caring for our dog and cat patients. So far this year, we’ve provided 17,485 spay and neuter surgeries and veterinary wellness care to an additional 5,468 animal companions. This is all thanks to our partners in saving lives! Of course, our work is not done. We need your support to be able to continue our efforts and accomplish much more. Did you know that 68% of the population have animal companions in their homes? The bond we share with our pets enriches our lives. In fact, the human-animal bond is now embedded in our mission statement; we’re here to help strengthen that bond through quality care. Animal advocates like you make it possible for us to continue to aid more people and pets, creating even more bonds, and empowering our community to learn about their pets’ wellbeing.
Marley is a three-year-old white poodle dog who was kept in a kennel outside for three months at the neighbors’ house. When the neighbors moved, poor Marley was left behind. His new mom, Rachel, graciously took him in and made him part of the family. He’s an only (dog) child, so he gets the run of the house and fits right in with her family. Rachel regularly drives by our SNAP clinic, so she decided to check us out and bring Marley in for his neuter surgery. Because of Marley’s previous poor living conditions, he was severely matted. While he was under anesthesia, the SNAP team lent a helping hand and gave him a clean shave to rid him of about a pound of matted fur. Marley emerged from his neuter surgery feeling like a puppy again with a new haircut. Because his mom trusted us with his care, there’s no need to worry about a litter of future Marleys that may end up homeless due to neglect.
