Pet Pal’s President, Pam Kolacy, has prepared a report on our 2015 accomplishments.
Here are some of the highlights of our efforts:
- 327 pets in low income families spayed/neutered in 2015; 4,412 pets since 2002
- 104 community cats spayed /neutered in 2015; 2,139 since the program began in June 2001.
- 30 animals given medical treatment through Ginger’s Fund in 2015 for a total of 581 animals since that project began.
- 11 Pets to People therapy dog teams making regularly scheduled visits to Life Care Center, Seaport Landing, and Victoria House.
- 31 READ to ROVER teams were active at Grant Street Elementary School, Chimacum Primary School and the City public library.
- The community cat and low income spay/neuter volunteers were busy clearing up at least two identified situations where pets had been allowed to breed uncontrolled for years.
- An $8,000 grant received from the HTB Family Fund to support spay and neuter programs.
- Our newsletter is now printed in color and looks more striking and professional.
- Low-income spay/neuter clients contributed nearly $2,000 in co-pays for vet services
- Because we operate only with volunteers, 88% of our funding goes toward veterinarian services. Our local vets provide their services at a rate that is nearly at cost.
