All of us at Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park are so excited to be entered into the Ocean First Charity Challenge for the third year. Let's make this year even better than last! We are so grateful for the support that we received during the contests in previous years, and with your donations, not only we were able to purchase a laser for our medical department, which has helped so many animals that have come in with orthopedic issues and injuries, but we've also helped countless animals that were victims of abuse and neglect, and got them the medical care that they desperately needed. Thanks to you, so many animals got a second chance in life, and found wonderful homes that they were so deserving of.
This year we are, once again, raising money for our Res-Q Fund. The Res-Q Fund at Associated Humane Societies is a fund that was set up to provide animals with urgent medical care. Sadly, this fund is depleted time and time again as so many more animals come through our doors with serious injuries and conditions that require critical care. We have veterinary teams at all three of our AHS branches that treat animals of all breeds and species daily, and also utilize many of the specialized veterinary hospitals throughout New Jersey. Our medical departments are in need of new equipment, such as an autoclave and various other instruments, and the need for medical care for animals is a constant at AHS.
We see countless cases of abuse and neglect of innocent, defenseless animals every day. So many of these animals need surgery, therapy, medications, and continuing medical care to make their lives whole again. We have cured so many, yet more keep coming. Donations to our Res-Q Fund go such a long way in the plight of helping animals in need. Please help us reach our goal of $20,000 this year. Thank you!
