Anne Arundel County Animal Care & Control does not have a veterinarian on staff to care for ill or injured animals. As a result, a large part of the Friends of AACACC budget goes toward vet care — either critical care to save an animals life or procedures and tests that make an animal more adoptable. Friends pays for a mobile veterinarian to come to the shelter once a week and examine any animals already there who need non-critical care. We also transport animals to many local veterinary hospitals that give us substantial discounts on services ranging from relatively routine services such as dental cleanings to urgent, life-saving emergency care. (Thank you to all our veterinary partners!) Here are some examples of how funds from our donors have dramatically turned around – and, in some cases, saved — the lives of individual homeless pets:
