In honor of #GivingTuesday, an anonymous donor has just pledged to match gifts up to $4,000.00, for all gifts made between now and December 6th! Please help us raise $4,000 before December 6th so we can get the most out of this generous offer!
You can help the Lowell Humane Society to “Build Our Clinic”. In May, after 30+ years as a tenant of the Lowell Humane Society, The Lowell Veterinary Clinic closed. Although we were stunned at first, we quickly realized the opportunity that their closing presented. The space has a lobby, exam room, surgical suite, recovery area, pharmacy space and offers plenty of room to house new a new medical program and allow for in-house surgical procedures of shelter animals.
Our first step in this new adventure will be to purchase the equipment needed to begin to perform spays, neuters, dentals and other minor medical procedures. Please visit our “Build A Clinic” board to see what items are needed and how you can help. Equipment needed varies in cost from $25 for anesthesia bags to over a thousand dollars for a surgery table. Every donation, large or small, will help us to accomplish our goals. With your help, we plan to make this dream a reality as early as January 2017. During our Paws For Celebration Auction, we were able to secure funding for most items, but we still need funding for a few final pieces of equipment to round out the facility, a Dental Station ($4,000), Autoclave ($3,000) and Anesthesia Machine ($2,500). We need your help to make it happen!
Last year, over $50,000 was spent on outside medical costs. Building this clinic will not only help to reduce these costs, but will also reduce transport stress for the animals, save staff and volunteer time and reduce the wait time for animals needing surgery. We know that this transition is the right move for the organization and the animals in order to continue to provide cost-effective, quality care. This is just one small step, but with your support we plan to continue to do great things for the pets and people within our community.
