April 2017
Thank You, Volunteers! 

The week of April 23 is Volunteer Appreciation Week and at Pets In Need, we love our volunteers! From assisting our clients, to unloading  large donations of pet food, to cleaning  up little (or big) pet messes, helping with events , and everything in between, we rely on them every day to keep the clinic operating and running smoothly.
And while we think every week should be volunteer appreciation week, we would like to give each and every one of our volunteers  a big THANK YOU for all they do!

Happy Anniversary, PIN!

It seems like only yesterday that the clinic opened - but on April 15th it will have been
FOUR years.   

The clinic now serve pets from more than 1,800 local low-income families.  In 2016 we provided:
  • 5,222 vet exams
  • 4,995 vaccines 
  • 736 spay/neuter
  • 18,505 doses of flea/tick medication
  • 10,027 doses of heartworm medication
We are so thankful for our caring community of donors, grantors and volunteers  
without whose generosity and support we couldn't have come this far.

Thank you all for believing in what we do and for helping to keep
pets healthy and together with the people who love them.

Congratulations to NS Cares, this year's Cincinnati BFG champion and a very worthy opponent!  We just learned that
