SURVEY FEEDBACK:
Here’s some of what we heard from our Lucky Star Veterinarians:

*Recognition Long Overdue- PFA asked us to list all of their veterinarians who generously give of their time in free surgeries to fulfill PFA’s pledge. You’ll now see their names individually here & on the “Pledges” pg. We are very happy to thank & recognize each of them as Lucky Star Veterinarians!

*New Ways to Reach Out- Some Lucky Stars are looking for new ways to find those in need of their free services. Today’s Animal Control Officer is a source of leads. ACO s would welcome the chance to offer free S/N surgeries to people in your community who are unaware that help is available. You can brief your ACO on the details of your offer & learn from them of their greatest need. Or you might want to reach out to shelters/ rescues.Enter zipcode @ www.petfinder.com, click on “find a shelter” for a list of nearby groups. Fixing every animal before adoption is any rescuers dream, a dream that your Lucky Star pledge can help achieve!

*Web Links Established- Requested links from our website to yours: Done! See “Pledges” pg. Happy to add more anytime. More survey feedback in October issue!
