Pets In Need Clinic

Lots of people make New Year's resolutions - like losing weight, getting in shape, or quitting smoking - but here is a really neat resolution!

Dr. Michelle Brownstein of the Henrietta Animal Hospital is asking her colleagues and other pet advocates to work together to help provide low-cost spay/neuter services for people in financial crisis under the auspices of the Pets In Need Clinic. She would also like to establish Pets in Need Clinic Shelter Partners that meet a minimum standard of care and act as a clearinghouse to unite prospective pet owners with available pets. In addition, Pets In Need Clinic Veterinary Partners would provide ongoing medical help to those who have experienced a recent financial crisis. And if that's not enough - the ultimate goal of this group would be to help bring about state and federal legislation to govern all rescues and shelters.

Are you ready for a New Year's resolution that could make a big difference in the lives of people in need and their companion animals? If so, please visit Dr. Brownstein's blog post and spread the word!
