Challenge

It is not uncommon for the cost of emergency treatment for lost, stray, and wild animals to rise above $300,000 every year. DoveLewis works with all county shelters, and complies with their protocols regarding stray animals. We receive minimal reimbursement for emergency stray care from the surrounding counties animal control agencies. That reimbursement comes only for animals which county agents bring in themselves. Good samaritans are asked to make a donation for the care of the animal

Solution

Hundreds of injured strays, lost pets and hurt wild animals come to DoveLewis from county shelters, good samaritan citizens, police officers, and firefighters each year. We also regularly care for injured wildlife when the Audubon Society is closed.

Long-Term Impact

Continued veterinary care for stray animals & wildlife
