Support Animal Veterinary Fund - Join us!

After being left alone for days in his backyard with a broken doghouse, very little food, and frozen water, Buster, the part yellow Labrador/part Boxer mix, took his chance one day when the gate was left open. Only he didn’t know the dangers cars could bring. As Buster dashed into the road making his escape, he ended up badly injured. Without help, he may wander the neighborhood on a broken leg for days.

Meanwhile, Chloe the pretty tabby cat that was used to cuddling on a soft, warm couch inside her home, now finds herself left outside alone. You see, her owners moved and left her to fend for herself, something a housecat just can’t do. And very quickly Chloe has gotten sick… probably an upper respiratory infection. If left untreated, it will only get worse.

The great hope for both Buster and Chloe is that they end up being taken to the new Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center (ASAC), either by a kind neighbor who sees their plight or by the professional Animal Control officers who scoop these loving animals up off the streets. Once at the shelter, they can begin to receive the veterinary care they so desperately need to heal, and then find the loving home they deserve.

The ASAC leadership team expects vet care for these animals with no one else to be one of the largest variable expenses. That's why MCPAW has stepped up to help. Everyone involved wants to provide immediate medical care to Buster and Chloe, and every other dog, cat, bunny, guinea pig, horse or chicken that finds its way to the shelter. That can only happen if the funds are available.

That’s why we need your help. MCPAW has accepted this challenge because we believe the people of Montgomery County will come together to start a Vet Fund for the shelter, and then keep it going for years to come. We can provide the first step in healing these animals physically so they can go on to heal emotionally. Every gift makes a difference; no amount is too small or too large. Will you help us help the animals?
