Happy Holidays from Fisher Glen Animal Hospital!

All of us here at Fisher Glen Animal Hospital would like to wish you Happy Holidays! We hope that you and your loved ones have an amazing holiday season, and a Happy New Year! We also want to tell you about Ottawa Paw Pantry, an excellent Charity we’ll be fundraising for this Holiday season!

Ottawa Paw Pantry

The Ottawa Paw Pantry is a 100% volunteer run non-profit pet food resource for low income families. When your pets have become extensions of your family, you want nothing but the best for them. Giving up a family pet because you can’t provide food is a very difficult experience for everyone. That’s why this charity exists – to provide temporary food assistance to qualifying low-income owners who are currently unable to afford food for their pets and may be forced to give up their pets without food assistance. Sadly, more and more dogs and cats are being surrendered to local shelters or animal rescue because of this.

That’s why we care so deeply about this charity. During the holiday season especially, it’s important to remember those people who might be going through a hard time. Whether they have recently lost a job, are living on a fixed income, or are currently dealing with an illness or disability, the ability to access pet food can make a big difference in person’s life.

The Ottawa Paw Pantry accepts both funding and pet food donations. Please feel free to drop any donations off at our clinic. Let’s give generously, and help to help make the season a little brighter for everyone!

Fisher Glen is raising money for the Farley Foundation!

October is fundraising month here at Fisher Glen Animal Hospital, and we are raising money for the Farley Foundation! The Farley Foundation is an incredible charity, dedicated to helping those who are struggling financially to pay for veterinary care for their pets.

Sharing our lives with an animal is a wonderful experience, with many beneficial impacts. Pets have been shown to help treat stress, depression, high blood pressure, and to increase social interaction and physical activity. In fact, the simple act of petting an animal has been shown to lower your heart rate and increase your sense of well-being. Looking after our pets also contributes to our sense of purpose. For many who are elderly or disabled or suffering from financial hardship, this is critical to their well-being.

That’s why we here at Fisher Glen Animal Hospital believe so deeply in the Farley Foundation. Seniors, disabled people, women in domestic violence shelters and low income people from all walks of life deserve medical care for a sick or injured pet. To date, the Farley Foundation has helped more than 10,000 pets and their loving families. They have dispersed over $4 million to assist with the cost of unexpected veterinary care.
