SPRING 2019
                       Thank You, Kenneth A Scott Charitable Trust!


F or the sixth consecutive year, Pets In Need has received renewal funding from the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust. This year's grant of $19,000 brings the total support received from the Trust to $160,000.  The grant will be used to provide veterinary care, including spay/neuter surgery assistance, for dogs. 
 
In 2009, the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust provided the initial funding for the part-time Pets In Need program at the UCAN Nonprofit Spay Neuter Clinic. In 2012 when the program became a stand-alone nonprofit, the Trust again supported the mission.  We're beyond grateful for the Trust's continued generosity and support of our mission. 


Melvin & Morkey: A PIN Success Story


Meet little Morkey and his faithful human, Melvin. After several failed placements, Morkey  found with Melvin the love, attention, and forever home he wanted and deserved.
 
Now 8-years old, Morkey has been enrolled  at Pets In Need since September 2015. Melvin has diligently brought him in every year for an exam and vaccines. His check-ups had always been normal until last summer when our vet noticed that Morkey had advancing dental disease.  

Morkey was recommended for referral to one of our partnering private practices for a dental cleaning but in advance of that, pre-anesthesia bloodwork revealed a potential issue with his liver.  An ultrasound at another partnering practice revealed a condition which was disrupting the detoxification process in Morkey's body.  He was put on a special diet to support his liver function and later was able to have the dental procedure.   We're looking forward to seeing a healthy Morkie at his annual appointment this summer!

Client Wisdom
Every day at Pets in Need, we meet people and pets who touch our hearts. Just this week, a wonderful new client brought us cat beds she had crocheted. She said she was so grateful to have found Pets In Need after spending more than she could afford to get care for her kitty at a private for profit practice.  To pay the bill, she sold a cherished silver family heirloom.  But, "it was worth it", she said. "You can't hug silver -and it doesn't love you back"
