A Memorial for Memorials
If you’ve never noticed the Companion Animal Fund tribute station in the reception area of the Hixson-Lied Small Animal Hospital, you’re not alone. Donations of all sizes to support animal care have been documented and “displayed” weekly in a three-ring binder for years, but few in our community would stop and inspect the materials within a modest bookcase at the back of the public space.
Hoping to bring our supporters and the beloved pets so often celebrated or memorialized by the Companion Animal Fund Registry to new light, an electronic kiosk is being built this winter to replace laminated pages with full-color images and dynamic information. Appropriately enough, this special gift recognition is the result of an equally special gift donated this fall by compassionate clients Stan and Amber Sherman on behalf of their own precious pet precious pet, Mr. Cleo – a sweet Maltese who was cared by Dr. Eddie Vasquez and the Emergency and Critical Care team in the Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center.
Check out the new tribute kiosk early in 2023. Learn more about the Companion Animal Fund.
