It is true!
Mcpaws has opened a full service, public veterinary hospital
Located in McCall, Idaho
We have purchased the Donnelly Veterinary Hospital (DVH) and Long Valley Veterinary Clinic (LVVC). These two practices have been merged into one full-service, MCPAWS Veterinary Hospital, operating out of the Donnelly location: 8 Coho Lane. Similar to the MCPAWS Thrift Store, all net proceeds from the vet hospital will be used to fund operations and programs at the shelter.
There are several reasons why this is the right move for MCPAWS:
- Expansion of existing programs. Adoption services alone will not address the pet overpopulation problem. The MCPAWS Veterinary Hospital will increase our capacity to offer vital owner support services, like low-cost spay/neuter surgeries, in a comprehensive manner, assuring the need is met and the number of unwanted litters in our community is greatly reduced.
- Offer quality veterinary services for our community. The veterinarians that owned/operated LVVC and DVH wanted to retire. Should either of these veterinarians have decided to liquidate their business, our immediate area would be left without veterinary services. This opportunity allows MCPAWS to assure that local pet owners never find themselves without access to quality vet care for their beloved pets.
- We are ready to take on this challenge. Thanks to our fantastic staff, volunteers, Board of Directors, donors, and our amazingly supportive community, MCPAWS is in a great position to take advantage of this new opportunity. We’ve engaged with legal professionals to ensure our nonprofit status is secure, Dr. Houlihan and Dr. Jacques are supportive of our efforts, and we’re actively working toward hiring new veterinarians that will continue the legacy of excellent, compassionate care for our clients. MCPAWS Veterinary Hospital has hired a new director of shelter operations! Dr. Cook joins the team October 1, 2020!
