Paws for the Homeless
Animal Medical Clinic of Chesapeake has partnered with Blankets for the Homeless to help the many homeless people who struggle to care for their pets. Very often these pets are their major source of unconditional love and support. As pet lovers, we all understand how important the human-animal bond is. For the homeless population, their pets can be even more important, as they often also provide a true 'healing touch' for those who have already had much loss in their lives.
You can read more about our partnership in this article from The Shopper:
Help us again as we continue our partnership with Blankets for the Homeless to help our local Homeless population with their pet car needs. Our 2nd Annual Pet Angel Tree is decorated with tags of suggested supplies that can be tremendously helpful for our homeless neighbors. Blankets for the Homeless relies entirely on donations from caring individuals. We will also be collecting money donations to help with pet healthcare, surgeries, & medications; in addition to funds helping Blankets for the Homeless afford a new van to distribute from.
Thank you to the many generous donations so many of you have made throughout the year also!!

Thanks you to a wonderful young girl, Charlotte, and her family. For her birthday, she asked everyone to bring a monetary gift for the homeless and their pets rather than gifts for herself. She and her friends raised $350! The homeless were so very touched at her kindness and it made them feel very special that the young people care enough to give up their own gifts to raise money for them and their pets!
Thank you for all the ways you show your love of animals!
Sincerely, the Animal Medical team
