About the Campaign
Imagine a full-service, non-profit vet clinic
Now imagine the clinic helps you cover your bill, when you can’t afford some or all of cost!
Then imagine helping emergency cases, when animals have no where else to go!
Together, we can make that happen!
- Founded in 2016, to help sick or injured animals obtain critical medical care when their owners cannot afford it.
- Funds are raised on our crowdfunding website, shown here.
- We have paid over $1.6 million for the essential medical care of more than 1,100 pets.
- In 2021, we opened a once-a-week, low cost spay & neuter clinic.
- We have spayed or neutered more than 2,800 dogs and cats, repaired 30 hernias, removed 27 masses, and vaccinated over 450 pets.
- The clinic is self-sustaining.
Urgent Need to Expand
- Crowdfunding is an effective fundraising method; however, it has one significant limitation, it takes time to raise the vital funds.
- In emergencies, when a pet’s condition demands immediate care, time is the one thing these pets do not have.
- Pets needing immediate care are forced to endure their painful condition until all funds are raised.
- Delays in treatment may cause secondary complications.
- Sometimes care may come too late.
The Perfect Solution
- Replace our existing spay & neuter clinic with a full-service veterinary clinic.
- A clinic capable of providing a broad and diverse range of quality veterinary care.
- With a full-service veterinary clinic, we can provide essential veterinary care, when that care is needed, without having to wait until the funds are raised.
- Eliminating delays in treatment provides significant benefits to all pets, especially in emergencies.
- Providing care when care is needed, yields the best possible medical outcome, and dramatically reduces the time the pet suffers.
- Offers financially disadvantaged pets’ better access to essential medical care.
- By owning a full-service veterinary clinic, we control costs, allowing us to offer the lowest possible prices. Helping more pets per dollar.
Request for Donor Support to Develop Non-Profit Full-Service Clinic
- We have already leased the property for the new clinic.
- Photograph below shows our existing spay & neuter clinic (in white) while outlining the dimensions of the new clinic in red. The adjacent building is a human clinic.
We need $1.1 million to complete the project
- $600,000 to purchase 4 used mobile homes (60’ X 12’) which will be modified and combined to create our new 2880 sq ft. modular surgical clinic. See below.
- Another $25,000 for utility hookup and site preparation.
- And finally, $475,000 to purchase diagnostic machines, surgical equipment, and kennels.
- Free Animal Doctor is contributing up to $200,000 in reserve funds toward risk mitigation during initial years of operation to ensure a successful start.
- Once construction begins, the clinic should be completed within 4-5 months and operational shortly thereafter.
- During the first year, we expect to provide essential medical care to 600 pets in addition to offering spay & neuter services.
This integrated crowdfunding and pet care delivery model is a social innovation and will provide more pets with broader medical services in a more timely and cost-effective manner. Once we have shown this model viable, we will expand, beginning in southern California.
