Sharing our vision & plans for 2017

Welcome to our new website!  This site is still under construction and we will be adding functionality in the future.  In the meantime, I want to share with you our 2016 accomplishments and our vision for the Pets4Life mobile vet clinic.

First, a little recap of the year:  In 2016 we found ourselves in a pickle:  We had an amazing $400,000 state-of-the-art mobile vet unit, but no resources or support structure to get it working for the good of the community.  With that in mind, in 2016 we re-established a new board, changed our name, created a logo for the mobile vet, met with several Louisville animal advocacy groups, and executed  a series of pilot events.  By year-end we will have participated in five community events and helped approximately 110 at-risk animals (dogs, cats & rabbits) in the community.

Our goal for 2017 is to partner with other advocacy groups, individual philanthropists/volunteers, and corporate stewards to bring the Pets4Life mobile vet to under-served communities of Louisville (areas without veterinary services or transportation).

Our Causes:

  • Animal Suffering Campaign:  The goal of this campaign is to ensure that pets in under-served areas of Louisville are getting basic vet care and vaccines to prevent disease and suffering.
  • Spay/Neuter Campaign: The goal of this campaign is to decrease unwanted births, reduce homeless pets and increase live-release rates in Louisville shelters.
  • Pet Retention Campaign: The goal of this campaign is to help people keep their pets for life, instead of surrendering them to a shelter.  The focus is education, microchips/ID tags & other resources designed to help prevent & reunite lost pets.
