Pet Wellness Clinics raised more than $2,000 for the Humane Society for Boone County through its “Peace. Love. Pets.” giving campaign, encouraging clients to enroll their pets into its Pet Prime Membership program.
The program lays the foundation for a pet’s health and provides cost savings for their owner by including all the vaccinations a pet needs, including annual heartworm, flea and tick prevention, unlimited exams, technician visits and 10 percent off prescription medications and nutraceutical items.
For every new member, Pet Wellness Clinics, a group of seven clinics across central Indiana, donated $10 to the shelter. The promotion spanned Nov. 15 through Dec. 31, 2018. Between all seven locations, Pet Wellness gained 192 new memberships.
On Jan. 3, Zionsville Pet Wellness Clinic presented the Humane Society for Boone County with a check for $2,034.92 at the HSBC shelter, 5366 S. Indianapolis Rd., Whitestown.
“It was nice to see (HSBC’s) new facility and the upgrades they are doing,” said Betsy Smart, Pet Wellness Clinics practice manager.
Proceeds will go toward animal food, toys, cleaning supplies, beds and more for the HSBC.
“We are very grateful for Pet Wellness Clinic’s generosity and efforts to help support our all-volunteer organization,” said Susan Austin, president and director of Animal Welfare and Fundraising for HSBC. “The proceeds will help us continue providing an even better service to the abandoned, neglected and homeless animals of Boone County.”
The veterinary provider then took the pet care campaign to the next level by offering continued medical services to current and incoming animals of the shelter. Pet Wellness will provide spay and neuter services and some wellness care, including vaccinations and heartworm testing.
“We’re excited to be able to work with Boone County because they are completely donation-funded,” Smart said. “We want to help them in any way we can.”
