"We solemnly swear to use our scientific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society..." 75 days to the 2015 "Big Fix" in New Britain!  See more

THE STORY:

The Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation, in part using an “Oath-in-Action” grant from the American Veterinary Medical Foundation will hold the “2015 Big Fix Program”, a pet sterilization and care program for the needy on October 24th & 25th, 2015. The Big Fix program is to be held in the City of New Britain, a city with many impoverished residents whose animals have rarely or never seen a veterinarian. Animal disease and unwanted litters are well known and persistent problems in this city and there are few options aside from charitable intervention to address them. We will bring necessary pet care services to these animals, whose owners cannot afford veterinary care and often have no transportation to get to a veterinarian regardless.  In cooperation with the New Britain Police Department (NBPD) Animal Control Division, this sterilization, immunization and parasite control event, will be held at the Oak Street police substation. We will set up a fully functional clinic complete with operating suite, and then sterilize, immunize and treat as many animals as we can, during two, twelve hour days.  Twenty-four volunteer veterinarians  with accompanying technical staff will spend a portion of their weekend caring for these under-served animals. The NBPD will select program participants based on need and in some cases transport the animals to the clinic. The Connecticut Veterinary Medical Foundation will supply everything needed (equipment, supplies) and the grant can only go so far. We need to raise funds to further offset these costs. Please consider helping to fund this worthy care and prevention program on behalf of New Britain, its people and their pets.
