When Disaster Strikes
Severe weather can impact families throughout the spring and summer months. Are your pets included in your emergency preparedness plans? It's a lesson we have learned from past weather disasters all over the country. Many companion animals still remain homeless from the most recent weather events or worse, did not survive. Act now to ensure your pets stay happy, healthy and safe year round. Check out the following links for plans that can save your pet’s life during a disaster.
Who’s Your Daddy?
There are 45 healthier boys along with their pet owners who will not have to worry about answering that question. On February 28th, we held our first Neut-a-Tom event. Forty-six participated in the event; one experienced a gender identity issue because he was actually a girl! We would like to thank the responsible pet owners, animal rescue organizations, our veterinarian Dr. Billee Rindsig and especially the many volunteers who made possible this memorable day at our clinic. We actually preformed 59 procedures; two dogs and eleven female cats also visited us that day.
The skills of our professional veterinarians, dedication of our volunteers and responsibility of all pet owners are all critical to continuing our mission to keep companion pets happy, healthy and safe. You can help support impactful events like this, by becoming a PAL and donating to our Prevent A Litter fund. Help make a difference in the lives of animals right here in your community now!

It is also important to watch for the signs of deteriorating dental health, which can be a sign of an underlying health issue. If you missed out on our February celebration don’t worry, we offer low cost dental cleaning weekly. Call for an appointment today.
A Rescue Story
Meet Ella and Nora. They are a mother daughter team that came to us to find a rescue. Ella was originally found under a porch in the south side of Chicago with three kittens. A kind young man brought her and the kittens in, socialized them, fed and cared for them until she was done nursing and the kittens were old enough to find homes. He found homes for two of the three kittens, but could not find one for Ella and Nora. So his father reached out to us for help. We took them in, spayed, vaccinated, tested them. They stayed with us for a couple of weeks and then went to HELP where they were able to find a forever home.
