A Win-Win Solution
Thank you to those who attended and supported the Companion Animal Clinic Foundation (CACF) capital building launch at The Covington House May 11. We also owe gratitude to the Sandhills community for its interest in affordable spay/neuter.
Understanding the relationship between poverty and euthanasia at animal control centers, CACF provides affordable spay/neuter at the Spay Neuter Veterinary Clinic (SNVC) in Vass. The clients the SNVC serves have the least voice in our community, as they are in need of financial assistance, often not only for their pets but also their families. The influence of affordable spay/neuter is far-reaching by touching thousands of individuals in a small but meaningful way. Through affordable spay/neuter, the CAC Foundation provides a service to the community by the reduction of animals surrendered to animal control agencies.
Affordable spay/neuter is a win-win solution. CACF receives no government support, relying entirely on private donors. This is a double-edged sword, since the people we serve are least able to support the organization. Nevertheless, the Sandhills family has shown resilience in the face of troublesome odds by supporting CACF’s fundraising efforts.
We host a couple of major fundraisers a year to raise money for operations and to fund the purchase of the SNVC building. More than 20,000 spay/neuter surgeries have been provided at SNVC, and the building fund to purchase the facility has been established. Our funds are increasingly drawn upon as we provide more and more surgeries and save to fund the purchase of the building.
Thank you from our human and animal clients who have benefited from your support, and for your donations and voice in our mission to reduce euthanasia through affordable spay/neuter. Your continued support will maintain our efforts to address animal overpopulation in central North Carolina.
