The Pet Angel Fund at Robinson Animal Hospital is a very special fund and one that is near and dear in the hearts of many, and was no more special to anyone than it was to Dr. James W. Robinson. It was actually started by Dr. Eugene Anderson, who was a devoted client. It is a fund that is wholly dependent on donations and the proceeds will be used in very specific circumstances.
One of the most difficult situations that our veterinarians enounter involve our loyal clients whose beloved long-term companion requires veterinary care that is beyond their financial reach. It is heartbreaking! The sole purpose of our Angel Fund is provide financial assistance in these situations.
The funds are only used when an established client of our hospital has a loving relationship with a pet, and veterinary care is crucial for the life of this pet. However the client simply cannot afford it. This pet must have been well cared for throughout his or her life, including regular wellness visits and routine care.
Dr. James Robinson, our founder, approved all monies dispersed from this fund on an individual basis. In his memory, the same guidelines that he used will be followed:
Funds are never used to:
- Care for abandoned pets
- Care for a pet that that has generally not been well cared for, at the discretion of the treating veterinarian
- Prolong the life of a terminally ill pet
We do not accept requests or applications for use of these funds. It is something that is offered in a certain circumstances, in following Dr. Robinson’s guidelines. This fund was so special to him, it is important that we continue to use it in the manner that Dr. Robinson intended.
Many of our donations are memorial donations. Some donations are in memory of one’s pet and others are in memory of a friend’s pet. And in many situations donations are made in memory of a human loved one who was an animal lover. Others are just simply made out of kindness and generosity.
