Ginger’s Fund

Emergency Medical Care for Needy Pets

Ginger Wiener

Ginger’s Fund provides financial assistance for emergency medical treatment for animals whose owners cannot afford to pay all or part of the necessary veterinarian services.

The fund was established by Marsha and Sol Wiener in memory of their beloved golden retriever, Ginger. Money from Ginger’s Fund is allocated at the discretion of local participating veterinarians. Owners must reside in Jefferson County and animals helped through the program must be spayed or neutered. The vets determine the amount of funding needed at the time of the emergency and bill us directly for a portion of the cost. At this time, our ability to fund these services is capped at a specific rate per month per veterinarian, as established by the Board.

Participating vets include Dr. Ginny Johnson and Dr. Cindy Alexander of Hadlock Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Jeff Highbarger of Chimacum Valley Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Abbie Doll of Pet Townsend Veterinary Clinic, and Dr. Madelyn Curll of Oak Bay Animal Hospital.

It is our hope that others might be inspired to contribute to the fund, perhaps in honor or memory of other pets or animal lovers.
