and his person Deloris couldn't afford the veterinary care that she knew he needed. Her neighborhood used to be a nice one, and over time things went downhill. She didn't feel safe anymore so she got Cameron, a 3 year old, pitbull male with all the exuberance of an overjoyed puppy in a big adult body. He makes her feel safe, and her finances are now stretched too thin to take him to the veterinarian. She knew he was hurting by the way he was acting.
Thanks to each generous #OneHealthHero (i.e. sponsor, donor, and granting agency), Cameron doesn't have to suffer any more. Through the Veterinary Payment Program at One Health Organization, Deloris was able to receive $250 worth of vouchers to use at a participating veterinary clinic because she was able to provide written proof of eligibility.
Because infected ears can become a long-standing problem if not addressed early, his treatments will likely be ongoing. And expensive. Thanks to the Project Noah Fund created by Dr. Brian Forsgren of Gateway Animal Clinic, and now housed under the umbrella of One Health Organization, pets like Cameron can feel better. And people like Deloris can have the peace of mind that their pet can get the proper care they need without going completely broke before the end of the month.
Cameron needs Deloris so he needs her to have enough to eat, clothes to wear, and a place to live.Providing for his health shouldn't have to make her suffer either.
That's why we care about keeping pets and people healthy at home (or wherever they may roam) for all the One Health Family members out there.
The Saving Pets Challenge launched May 4, 2015 at noon and ended June 5, 2015. Click here to see how our One Health Team Leaders did, and click here to see how we were able to be in 16th place among 336 other nonprofits in the country.
The #SavingPets Challenge 2015 was a national challenge by Michelsen FoundAnimals.org offered to those nonprofits reducing animal shelter euthanasia. One Health Organization does this by ensuring that older adults and the disabled can afford veterinary care for their pets, so they don’t have to be forced to give up their pet to an animal shelter.
One Health Team Leaders helped raise awareness about the challenge and raised almost $28,500. Woo hoo! 100% of the funds raised helps provide veterinary care services for low-income older adults and the disabled so they can keep their pets in their forever homes.
We call our donors who help keep pets in their forever homes a #OneHealthHero. Click here to donate today!
At the core of what we care about is the connection between the health of animals, people, and the environments in which they interact. Therefore, we are commited to:
We strive to keep people and pets healthy at home. People living on a low income sometimes have pets. Of all the stories we have heard from One Health Family Members is that each pet has been a rescue. This is success; these pets have found their forever homes!
When the reality of the cost of annual veterinary care surfaces, low-income people have tough choices to make. Do they care for their pet, or do they sacrifice their own health and safety? Or do they take their pet to one of the animal rescues, shelters, or foster agencies are already full and overwhelmed with too many pets? Or in desperation, do they let them loose on the streets?
One Health Organization helps remove of these tough choices for the most vulnerable populations; low-income seniors and those with disabilities. Low-income people who become One Health Family Members can provide a forever home and properly care for their pets.
A One Health Family is a household with a pet. In order for people and pets to live happy and healthy at home, the health care team must include a primary care veterinarian, which can be expensive. The Veterinary Payment Program is a benefit to One Health Family Members. Click here for more information about this program and how any One Health Family can benefit.
One Health Organization honors One Health Families by assisting people in need, particularly seniors and those with disabilities, to access affordable veterinary care services for dogs and cats who live with them.
