If you’re an animal lover and you want to help Farley help pets in Waterloo, stop by our office before the end of October, to make a donation to the Farley Foundation to be entered in a draw to win a Royal Canin gift basket! With a donation of $5, your pet will receive a free nail trim as well!
Carriage Crossing Animal Hospital is running the event in honour of the Farley Foundation, a registered Ontario charity that assists low-income pet owners by subsidizing the non-elective veterinary medical care of the sick/injured pets that mean the world to them. Since 2002, the Farley Foundation has disbursed over $2.2 million to assist well over 5,500 people and pets in need.
“As animal health professionals, we understand how strong the relationship is between humans and animals,” says Dr. Mara Garriets veterinarian and owner of Carriage Crossing Animal Hospital. “It’s particularly strong for certain categories of pet owners who rely heavily on their pets for companionship, and mental and physical well-being.
“We support the Farley Foundation because it assists low-income pet owners by helping to remove the financial burden so that they can continue to enjoy the benefits of pet ownership for as long as humanely possible.”
Other ways to help disadvantaged pets in October:
