Fear Free Certified veterinarians and veterinary nurses are helping pets and people in areas stricken by Hurricane Harvey. Can you help them keep doing this work and recover from their losses?
We’ve all seen the photos and read the stories of suffering and heroism in the flooded neighborhoods impacted by the storms. Many of our Fear Free Certified veterinarians and veterinary nurses live in those areas. Many are struggling with loss themselves, but are still working hard to prevent and relieve animal suffering, providing food, medical care, and housing to displaced and injured pets until they can be reunited with their families.
The Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation is providing funds to help veterinarians keep doing this important work, both by reimbursing them for their medical supplies and with grants to cover other needs, such as clinic repairs or rebuilding, on a case by case basis.
Fear Free has partnered with them to provide additional funds to Fear Free Certified veterinarians and veterinary technicians in the flood zone. We have started the fund out with an initial $10,000 donation, which we’ll be adding to soon. However, the need and the urgency are great.
Please join your dollars with ours and show the community of Fear Free Certified veterinary care providers that we stand with them in their time of greatest challenge.
Just visit https://www.texvetpets.org/giving/ and select “Disaster” in the drop down menu, then check “Yes” under “Is this donation intended for a Fear Free Certified Veterinarian or Veterinary Technician?”
