All too often as veterinarians we are faced with difficult decisions where our patients do not have insurance or the finances to cover the costs of medical care. It is so heartbreaking to see our family pets experience these situations, which is especially important with critical care and emergency cases when time is of the essence. The Critical Care Companion Animal Fund was created and co-sponsored by the PAWS for Life Animal Adoption League and The Stock Doc, to give families the opportunity to apply for and be able to cover the veterinary care that is needed to support their pet. Please help support our cause, it has already helped pets in need! The Fremont County Community was able to help us raise close to $6000 last year, Please help us to continue our quest!
Awards: Top male and female 5K/1K racers, fastest male and female with pet, top kiddo racers, and various awards chosen throughout the race (i.e. most furry, most athletic, most creative, most tricks, etc.)
The Fast and the Furriest race began in 2012 as a fundraiser to help support the Critical Care Companion Animal Fund. This fund was created to help support families faced with difficult circumstances where pets are in desperate need of emergent or critical veterinary care, however, the family is unable to provide the care that is needed because of financial hardships. Clients that are offered this opportunity must demonstrate need which is shown by low income and denied access to a Care Credit card. During this process, however, owners must validate that they provide preventative care for their pets. Once this is demonstrated, a separate committee composed of non-clinic individuals then distributes funds to clients who comply with the guidelines and demonstrate need. Once accepted, The Stock Doc will treat and medicate each disease or problem to their utmost potential and discount services, diagnostics, medications, and treatments. This fundraiser focuses on wellness and health for our pets and our families, as well as great fun, food, and awards. The CCCAF helps pets of all shapes, small or large, and the exotic type! The CCCAF has already helped pets and families in these difficult situations, please help us to do more! Help save a pet’s life. Thank you for all your support!!
