Wolf Trap Animal Rescue is working to secure a location for a Veterinary Hospital and Surgery Clinic to provide low-cost surgical and health services to the public.
Since May 9, 2015, 744 pups and 35 kittens have been rescued form euthanasia. Last week, in a story covered here, the organization hosted an adoption event where many people left with a new addition to their family. The monthly adoption events and foster opportunities are the core of the organization's primary mission.
The secondary mission is to provide exceptional health and preventative care for clients. Dr. Amber Burton, staff veterinarian and founder, offers at-home visits and wellness exams for recently adopted pets.
With the tremendous growth of the agency there are plans to expand into a primary location to ensure both missions can be met. The location will serve as a Veterinary Hospital and Surgery Clinic where quality care will be offered to the public. Only hospitalized patients will be boarded at the location.
In addition, the location will also allow for interested personnel and potential donors to learn about Wolf Trap Animal Rescue's mission and goals.
Dr. Burton, created a GoFund me account 14 days to help raise funds for the project.
A post form their Facebook page illustrates the support they need from the community.
"We have found a potential home for WTAR rescue operation, employee office, & veterinary hospital for all of our clients! It will be in the heart of our current operations, in the Mosaic industrial district! This location will only be possible if we raise the needed funds. Please share so we can fund the cost of build-out and make this a reality!"
