Merry Christmas from all your four-legged and two-legged friends at FVHA!
The holiday season is here and with it comes great joy and gratitude! As we prepare to celebrate with our families and friends, we take time to count our blessings and look back at the gifts this amazing year has brought us.
The FVHA has been blessed with an incredible amount of kindness and support from our community. This support has provided many new resources and partnerships that have helped us to grow. These opportunities allowed us to save even more lives, help more pets and provide owners with new lifesaving services.
Because of YOU 2015 has been an amazing year!
~The lives of over 5,000 animals will be saved this year!
~Additional life saving services have been provided to 551 families and their pets through our community collaboration project in partnership with Saint Joe’s Food Pantry, LEAVEN, Ryan Community, Pet Supplies Plus and Riverview Gardens.
~Our Veterinary Wellness Center treated over 12,421 homeless and injured animals and performed almost 3,550 life-saving surgeries.
~We are blessed with 700 hard-working volunteers that have generously donated over 17,000 hours to keep our pets healthy and comfortable and prepare them for new homes.
~57 canine therapy teams provided comfort and healing to children, patients in hospice, assisted living facilities and helped teach children to read.
~1,794 families’ pets received assistance through our food pantry so pets could stay in their homes.
We are extremely grateful for every contribution and every blessing. Our journey never ends at the Fox Valley Humane Association and because of your generosity, we saved more lives. Your support keeps us going and your commitment defines our success.
On behalf of the staff, volunteers, and animals, we wish you comfort and joy this holiday season. May 2016 fill your hearts with laughter, love and happiness.
