Middletown Animal Hospital thanks AHF for donation to help Valley Fire victims

Friday, January 29th, 2016
staff photo1Thank you SO VERY MUCH for your animal care donation to the victims of the Valley Fire.  On September 12 our little community endured a major disaster and we continue to struggle through our recovery.  Because of your generosity, we have been able to provide free care to hundreds of animals–AND we continue to do so.  Removing the burden of their pets’ medical needs has been a hugely compassionate thing to do for fire victims, and that would not have been possible without your help.  
Through this time we have seen people at their very best while circumstances have been at their very worst.  We feel extremely fortunate to have had the support of so many people and organizations, and we are looking forward to a new year and a new beginning.
Warm Regards,
Jeff Smith, DVM, Sheri Smith, & the MAH Staff

Goofy GutierrezGoofy’s owner is homeless and Goofy is the only family she has:  “…he is my son and the other half of my soul…”  When Goofy was attacked by a German Shepherd while on a walk with his owner, she didn’t know how she was going to pay for the needed veterinary care for Goofy.  Thanks to Drs. Weatherford and Toro at the Tustin Santa Ana Veterinary Hospital applying for an ANGEL FUND Grant from the AHF, Goofy is recovering from his wounds!

MONTEREY PARK >> A police K9 officer received a ballistic vest recently after the Monterey Park Police Department received the needed $950 in donations, officials said.

K9 Robin received the equipment June 26 from nonprofit organizations Vested Interest in K9s Inc. and the Animal Health Foundation of Lake Forest, Monterey Park police Sgt. Gus Jimenez wrote in a statement.

Vested Interest in K9s provides protective vests for $950 and offers a five-year warranty. Vests provide the law enforcement canines some protection from bullets, knife attacks and other dangers.

Robin’s vest will be embroidered with the sentiment “This gift of protection provided by the Animal Health Foundation.”

This is the second such piece to be awarded to a Monterey Park K9 this year. K9 Veeda received one in May.
