Dr. Lester Fisher Veterinary Care Fund
Donating to the Dr. Lester Fisher Veterinary Care Fund guarantees that your gift will go directly to the medical needs of animals that are cared for by The Anti-Cruelty Society. Each animal that enters our facility automatically receives a full veterinary exam, spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm or feline leukemia test, food and water, and daily loving care. The funds from the Dr. Lester Fisher Veterinary Care Fund go towards additional and sometimes extensive medical care such as dental care, repair of fractures, treatment for abused or neglected animals, etc. Help us help more animals in need by donating today.

Our veterinarians shaved the pup, cleaned and polished her teeth, removed her loose molar and cleaned her dirty ears. She was adopted the same day that she was put on the adoption floor.
Rita was left at our shelter in March by an owner who claimed she was too much to handle. Because Rita has proved herself to be one of the most gentle and well mannered dogs we have at the Society, it must have been her advanced state of pregnancy that scared off her former family. Shortly after her arrival Rita gave birth, gave birth and gave birth again until she had whelped 12 beautiful puppies. This is an extraordinary litter size, and even though Rita has been a perfect mother, there is still a lot of effort given by our staff to provide them the support that they need. Rita and her pups each found their forever home.
