|Jarrettsville Vet Winter edition|
Perhaps it is my entrepreneurial spirit, my over whelming compulsion to help more pets in more corners of the world, or my unwaivering refusal to not help those pets in my community, BUT, there is a problem and I want to find a solution.
|Snuggling in the kennel with my good friend Wendy|
- There are estimates of somewhere between 30,000 to 36,000 homes that are empty.
- These are primarily privately owned
- The empty homes represent about 16% of all of the homes.
- We also have about 3,000 people each day in need of a place to sleep at night.
At Jarrettsville Vet we have a boarding facility that sits largely empty during these coldest months. After the Christmas/New Years vacationing families return back home our boarding facility is largely empty. So, why not provide the obvious?
Starting immediately Jarrettsville Vet will provide a warm bed and a nutritious meal to any pet in need for the months of January and February. All you have to do is call and ask. If we have room your pet is welcome, and yes, of course, it is free.
With the incredibly generous support of our friends and supporters of the Good Samaritan Fund we will provide food, shelter, and basic veterinary care (if needed) to any pet in our community in need.
If you would like to help we will be collecting donations, bedding, straw bales, and even cat enclosures (see how to make them here), and even providing literature to help move these pets inside please join me here. Or stop by Jarrettsville Vet and share your support.
