Friend of Companion Animals,
to the support of our members, donors and volunteers,
2004 was another successful year. The SYVS receives
no funding from the National ASPCA or HSUS. We are
totally dependent upon your generous donations that
have enabled well-established programs to continue.
Spay/Neuter surgeries offer healthier lives for
numerous pets whilst significantly reducing unwanted
births, especially in areas where pet overpopulation
is rife. As funds allowed, we offered assistance
for sick and injured pets in need to veterinary
who have devoted countless, precious hours to answering
phones, providing foster care, working adoption
days and fund raising events, joining pet assisted
therapy, and much more make it all possible. Their
dedication to animal welfare is truly admirable.
Many, like me, founded the society almost 15 years
ago, and we've worked hard to make it the highly
respected organization that it is today. But now,
we need your help. We need fresh, enthusiastic newcomers
to invigorate and stimulate the society and to become
our potential successors. The work is rewarding
and important. As a volunteer, you have a direct
impact on the health and well being of countless
pets. It's a great place to put your ideas into
action, and the time commitment is at your discretion.
So, please give it some consideration and call us
if you'd like to volunteer, or if you want more
information. We invite you to share in the future
of the SVHS.
