June 27, 2017
Grant to Support Extended Care for Dogs In Need
CINCINNATI, OH – June 27, 2017 – Pets In Need of Greater Cincinnati received a $12,500 grant from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) to support extended care for dogs in need. The grant was part of $160,000 in grants awarded by The Greater Cincinnati Foundation to fourteen local animal welfare organizations that support the well being of the region’s pets.
As the only resource of its kind in Greater Cincinnati, Pets In Need provides affordable, high-quality veterinary care to low-income families. However, there are often cases where pets are in need of diagnostics or treatment beyond the capacity of Pets In Need Clinic resources. In such cases, Pets In Need veterinarians can refer the pet to partnering private veterinary practices with minimal cost to the client, thanks to the generosity of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and other kind contributors.
“For many of our clients, a pet is a constant source of love and support in an otherwise challenging life. We believe that everyone deserves the joy of a pet, and that all pets deserve quality veterinary care,” said Ann Hill, Pets In Need Executive Director. “We’re so grateful to The Greater Cincinnati Foundation for making it possible for us to continue to provide quality care, even if the need exceeds our resources.”
