We are pleased to introduce the Angel Fund to Hawthorne Animal Hospital.
The purpose of the Angel Fund is to improve the quality of life for a pet by providing financial support when every other option has been exhausted. This will be done through donations made by the community and Hawthorne Animal Hospital.
To kick off the Angel Fund, we are very excited to have the privilege of working with several police departments in the area to provide care to their K9 officers, including A’Toe from the Glen Carbon PD and Ordi, who recently retired from the Wood River PD after 7 years of service. Part of the Angel Fund will be contributing to the care of these K9 officers. Hawthorne Animal Hospital doctors and staff will provide total veterinary care for the remainder of their lives, including all well pet prevention, medications, emergencies, food and more!
In addition to caring for the K9 officers, the Angel Fund will also be utilized in helping the recovery of patients that are brought to Hawthorne by Treehouse Wildlife Center. Treehouse is a non-profit rescue and rehab for wildlife. Dr. Myer, Veterinarian and co-owner of Hawthorne Animal Hospital, treats many patients that are brought to us by the Treehouse staff; cases have included mending the broken wing of a Bald Eagle, performing an orthopedic surgery to repair the knee of a deer and many more!
There are many ways to contribute to the Angel Fund. Hawthorne will be hosting many contests and community events with proceeds going directly into the Angel Fund. You can also make donations here at the main hospital with our receptionist staff or by visiting the Veterinary Care Foundation website. When donating online, you will simply click on the Donate option and follow the prompts to make a donation directly to Hawthorne Animal Hospital. For every dollar donated by the community towards the Angel Fund, Hawthorne will commit to matching the donation.
We thank you for your continued support of Hawthorne Animal Hospital. If you have any questions about our new Angel Fund, including more details about how to donate, please call 618-288-3971.
