Dr. Ellen Buck Memorial Fund

In January 2017, after the passing of our beloved Saturday relief doctor Ellen Buck, our hospital established the Dr. Ellen Buck Memorial Fund to assist pets in need of medical care whose owners might be experiencing financial hardship, or other extenuating circumstances.  Dr. Buck was a wonderful veterinarian who loved all animals - especially cats and horses!!

 


Some of you have seen this dog's photos on Facebook and have asked how to help with her care.  The best way to help her would be with a monetary donation, rather than dog food or other supplies, as her care is quite complicated; she has experienced starvation, and she cannot eat normal dog food - yet. If you would like to contribute to our Dr. Ellen Buck Memorial Fund, please make checks payable to "Dr. Ellen Buck Memorial Fund." If you would prefer to donate by credit card, you may do so in person or by phone. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. She has already made great strides in her recovery, and has quite a huge fan base!
