The Farley Foundation was established by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association in 2002 and assists people in need by subsidizing the cost of veterinary care for their sick or injured pets. Baxter Animal Hospital adopted this idea, and has already put it to good use.
Recently, Rainbow District Animal Control was the beneficiary of this program. On Oct. 5, 16 homeless cats were treated, vaccinated and neutered.
More than $800 was collected by Baxter Animal Hospital through the Farley Foundation to make that happen. The veterinary hospital staff donated their time and solicited donations of the necessary medications, including vaccines and parasite treatments from the suppliers.
“It was a long day for the clinic staff who worked tirelessly late into the day,” said a press release.
To continue these efforts, Baxter Animal Hospital is staging the dinner theatre in the upper hall at the Caruso Club on Haig Street from 5-9 p.m.
The theme of the night is “Murder Al Dente.” Tickets are $50 per person, $90 per couple or $320 for a table of eight. All proceeds go to the Farley Foundation. Tickets are available at Baxter Animal Hospital, Caruso Club, Black Cat, Superior Auto Collision and Gloria’s Restaurant.
