As part of National Cupcake Day, the team at Rhodes & Williams baked and sold cupcakes ─ raising $419 for the Community Veterinary Outreach program. The contribution will help to provide veterinary care to homeless & vulnerably-housed pet and owners in Ottawa.
The Outreach Program provides preventive veterinary education and care to the animals of those in need. They improve not only the health of the animal, but also support the physical and emotional well-being of their owners or guardians.
The Mission Veterinary Care program began in 2003 providing preventative health care to animals of the homeless at the Ottawa Mission, and is now also operating in Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto, ON. Operating from CVO (College of Veterinarians of Ontario) licensed companion animal mobiles and staffed with volunteers, animals are examined, vaccinated, treated for internal and external parasites, and owners receive education and advice on nutrition, dental care, behaviour, and the benefits of sterilization.
