|Earlier this week our team went LIVE for a virtual tour around our clinic. We wanted to give you a special opportunity to peek behind the curtain and show you how we put your generous gifts to use each day. We also wanted to share with you how COVID-19 has affected and changed our operations. We hope you will take the time to check out the video. There are a few special and adorable guests throughout the video you won’t want to miss.|
During the video we also made an exciting announcement! A generous donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has offered to make a $5,000 gift to Planned PEThood of GA if we can raise the matching funds dollar for dollar by midnight on Giving Tuesday (May 5). Challenge accepted! This is a rare opportunity for your donations to be doubled immediately. Please consider a gift of at least $15 this evening which will immediately turn into $30.
Under normal circumstances, our spay/neuter clinic performs 50-75 surgeries on cats and dogs each day, and our kennel and cages are filled with patients awaiting surgery. Sadly, our clinic and most others in our area have been closed for the past 4-6 weeks, and at the worst possible time – kitten season. We expect to see a HUGE cat population BOOM in the next few months and the need for help will only grow.
So, as we dip our toes back in the water and begin opening up again for prearranged appointments, we have decided to utilize this special matching gift in two ways with our Clinic Cage Expansion & Community Outreach Project. Once raised, the $10,000 will allow us to purchase additional cage space in our surgery preparation area. This new section of cages will allow our team the ability to safely monitor and perform surgery on additional cats and small dogs each day.
We also know that as the need for our services will grow, so will the need for financial assistance. That is why $5,000 of the money raised will be put toward community veterinary assistance. Maybe someone rescued a pregnant cat and now is struggling to care for the new family, or maybe a dog needs an urgent spay surgery but the owner is out of work. These funds will allow our staff the ability to say, “Yes, we can help and we can even cover the cost.” The more we raise, the more we can help. Help us reach our $5,000 goal with a donation of any size right now.
