Loving Touch Animal Hospital

The hospital is a full service, non-profit, veterinary hospital. The hospital is a program of, "Saint Seton's Orphaned Animals." Our organization reduces pet overpopulation by providing the public with affordable spay/neuter surgery. This reduces the number of unwanted animals euthanized at public shelters in our region.
The hospital also provides free veterinary care for treatable illness or injury to low income pet owners. We prevent the euthanasia of companion animals due simply to financial considerations. These animals would otherwise be euthanized at a for profit, veterinary hospital or a county shelter.
The hospital provides deep discounts and free care to animal welfare organizations to enable them to use their funding to save more animals.
The hospital provides affordable care to the general public.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Our goal is to reduce the euthanasia rate at the shelters we serve to 10 percent in five years.

1. Encourage pet owners to purchase pet insurance to prevent a situation where they cannot pay for veterinary care. The problem with pet insurance is the owner has to pay up front and wait for reimbursement from the insurance company. We process pet insurance the same way as a human doctor's office so pet owners will be inclined to purchase pet insurance.<br/>2. Encourage pet owners to spay/neuter their pets by making the surgery affordable and by providing vouchers to low income pet owners. Transport animals to our hospital from rural areas for spay/neuter surgery to provide these individuals with a low cost option for this surgery.<br/>3. Provide free care to low income pet owners who cannot work due to age or disability.<br/>4. Provide pet food to low income pet owners to prevent surrender of the pet to a shelter due to their inability to pay for food.<br/>5. Provide discounted veterinary care to animal welfare groups to enable them to rescue more animals.<br/>6. Provide free care to service dogs to help wounded warriors function from day to day.<br/>7. Provide homes for orphaned animals.

We operate a non-profit, animal hospital to provide the veterinary care specified above.<br/><br/>We have operated a pet food program and an adoption program for many years.<br/><br/>In short, we have the drive and the know how to make a difference in animal welfare.

We monitor the shelter reports published by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs. This report indicates the euthanasia statistics for each county.

We are working on improving our fundraising capabilities. We are hosting the, "2016 Virginia Family and Pet Festival." We will host a Christmas bazaar and Christmas tree and wreath drive this year.<br/>
