People Aren’t the Only Ones Impacted by the Pandemic
Pet Savers of Spokane Valley Launches a Capital Campaign with an Online Auction Event on March 25, 2021
Spokane Valley, WA ~ COVID has hit us all to varying degrees, but the financial hardships endured have hit pets of the under-served in the Inland Northwest in a dramatic way. Pet Savers is realizing a greatly increased demand for basic core health services for dogs and cats in the Inland Northwest. “We provide surgeries five days a week with walk-in vaccine clinics from 10-1 every Saturday, but we are busting at the seams and are limited by the current size of our sadly outdated 1920s era house-made-clinic,” states executive director, Stephanie Napier. raise funds for an expanded clinic to better meet the ever-burgeoning need for affordable spay, neuter, and vaccine services in the Inland Northwest.
Robin Bishop, Pet Savers’ development director says, “It’s our dream to finally expand our services and staff to meet the burgeoning increase in the number of animals, shelters, rescues, and fosters, we can serve each year. It’s been difficult having to turn folks away due to space constraints. So we’re very excited to announce The Big Fix Online Auction event to launch our expansion efforts.”
You can support Pet Savers and have a lot of fun doing it, by registering for The Big Fix Live and Silent Auction.
The Big Fix Online Auction Event is being produced through ILF Media here in Spokane and Events by Jennifer Evans. Pet Savers recognizes their partners in this event, First Interstate Bank, Washington Trust Bank, Meridian Construction, and Elz Tastes and Tea. Animal Advocates of the Inland Northwest has committed to a $20,000 match for donations made to The Big Fix Campaign.
Pet Savers has already met with the City of Spokane Valley to begin the process of new construction and with the continued support of the local community they hope to be on schedule to break ground in the Fall. Their campaign materials state it is their plan to increase from an average of 8,500 surgeries per year to 20,000 and to expand to at least two vaccine clinics per week and expanded shelter, and feral cat community programming as soon as they have more space.
Pet Savers is a nonprofit High Quality High Volume Spay Neuter specialty clinic that has been providing excellent and affordable spay, neuter, and vaccine services in their current location at 7525 E Trent since 2005. It is the only full-time specialty spay/neuter clinic in the region.
