DAWG provides veterinary help to low-income residents

The Douglas Animal Welfare Group was awarded a grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust to provide financial assistance to low-income Douglas County residents who receive a state or federally funded entitlement program and need help in providing medical care for a family pet (horses are excluded).

The trust provides grants to nonprofit organizations to support their efforts to keep pets and their people together. This is the third year DAWG has been awarded this grant to provide financial assistance for veterinary care to low-income Douglas County residents.

Grant funds are to be used for veterinary expenses only, to include exams, routine tests, surgical and non-surgical procedures, medication, vaccinations and preventive care. This financial assistance for the medical care of family pets will be available until the funds are depleted.

For more information on the grant program, contact Pat Matthews, Program Coordinator, at 781-3742.

DAWG is a 501c3 nonprofit organization with the mission to better the lives of Douglas County animals.
