Nassau Veterinary Clinic supports local rescue organizations as well as the volunteers who make them work. Often, rescued animals require medical treatment as well as routine veterinary care, and NVC provides this service for pets taken in by several rescue groups in the Capital District. One veterinarian at NVC states that, "The people who help to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home unwanted or displaced pets touch a lot of lives… I am always enthusiastic about being part of the process."
In addition to providing medical care for rescued pets, NVC provides a place for the rescue organizations to hold pet adoption clinics. At these clinics, the rescue volunteers educate prospective adopters, and help match them with a pet that will suit their needs and lifestyle. After the adoption process, these volunteers follow up to ensure the new pet is adapting well to their new home.
Rescue organizations are made up of some of the most dedicated and compassionate individuals who volunteer their time. They are extremely devoted to the pets they rescue. NVC is proud of their work and are glad to be a part of their success.
And when the time is right to share your life and your home with a new pet, Nassau Veterinary Clinic encourages you to consider opening your heart to a rescue. Please visit the Companion Animal Placement Program (CAPP) and Animalovers web pages for more details.
