Pledge Numbers Increased!
We are happy to announce that Basking Ridge Animal Hospital has increased their pledge for 2007. Dr. Joseph Bloom has pledged the additional surgeries, for which he and the hospital have our sincere thanks! We appreciate very much the generous spirit with which each Lucky Star Veterinarian contributes their surgeries & services to needy animals in their care.
In Dec.06 HSUS gave $800,000 to Louisiana State U. School of Veterinary Medicine to launch in Spring 07 a community companion animal health program including an active spay neuter component, giving students experience & helping animals in underserved communities in southern Louisiana. Grant funded by donations targeted to help areas hit by Hurricane Katrina. A phone poll of Louisiana pet owners found nearly 1.8 million dogs & cats in homes across the state. About 700,000 of those pets (40%) are not spayed or neutered!
