What is the Pet Assistance Fund?
The Pet Assistance Fund is BSVC’s fund to help clients who are having financial difficulty taking care of their pets. The fund’s money comes from three sources: our TNR (trap-neuter-release) program for spaying and neutering feral cats, the Valentine’s Day Raffle, and Pet-Stock (our adoption clinic and fun day held the last Saturday of September).
Each year the doctors at the Ballston Spa Veterinary Clinic donate their time to spay and neuter hundreds of feral cats. These are wild cats that volunteers trap and bring to the clinic for surgery. One hundred percent of the proceeds from this service are donated to the Pet Assistance Fund to help our clients when they are in need. In 2013, we had a total of 81 spays and neuters completed. In return, 38 different families and their pets benefited from the Pet Assistance Fund, for a total of $6,376.84 given to families in need.
One of these cases was a little t-cup poodle, named Queenie, who needed a luxating patella repair. The help of the Pet Assistance Fund enabled the Client to be able to get the much needed surgery for her little baby. Queenie is now walking well on ALL FOUR LEGS!
