Grant will help Senior Dogs
Old dogs have something to wag about this summer, as The Grey Muzzle Organization announced that AVHS was one of the animal welfare groups that was awarded a grant to help local senior dogs. The grant will support the new AVHS Public Veterinary Assistance Fund, which provides financial assistance to low income Auburn residents for non-routine medical care of their dogs and cats. The program aims to enrich and maintain the human animal bond and keep loved pets in their homes. For more details on the program, click here. Bento is one of many great senior dogs that are available for adoption at AVHS.
