The Saving Pets Challenge launches May 4, 2015 and ends June 5, 2015. Contact us by e-mail to find out more.
Saving Pets Challenge is a national challenge by 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 help raise awareness about the challenge and raise the funds needed to win the opportunity to raise an additional $50,000, and other opportunities to raise money. Best of all, 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 them One Health Heroes.
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 membership program and how any One Health Family can benefit.
To learn more about how One Health Organization honors the human-animal bond through services to seniors and their pets, watch the short video below. You'll meet several of the seniors at the Westerly Apartments in Lakewood, Ohio and hear how in-home veterinary care for their pets has made a difference in their lives. Please note that the 'Vets On Wheels' program mentioned in the video has been discontinued. However, we still work with mobile veterinary practitioners as well veterinary clinics through the Veterinary Payment Program.
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. Now we invite you to honor a person or pet that is or has been especially significant in your life and to support Veterinary Payment Program with your gift.
