Kingsbrook Animal Hospital’s Five Fantastic, Fun Ways to Give Back In Frederick!

Many pet owners are kind, caring people who are looking for opportunities to give back to the community. In all of the hustle and bustle of daily life, adding one more thing to the list can seem overwhelming for even the most well-intentioned person. Here, Kingsbrook Animal Hospital in Frederick, MD shares the five easiest and best ways to get involved:

 

  1. Sign any 35-lb-or-over dog up as a Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Bank donor! Donation is

    KAH technician Julie’s own Sullivan proudly displays his blood donor ribbon!

    easy and free, and entitles donor dogs to free annual bloodwork and a guaranteed supply of blood if they ever need a transfusion.

  2. Look into doing therapy with a pet—visit nursing homes, hospitals, etc. Be sure the pet is up-to-date on all vaccines, and check with the facility before bringing any animals for a visit. It’s also possible to certify your pet for therapy.
  3. If Fluffy or Rover isn’t the most social, consider becoming a volunteer. Frederick County Animal Control is always looking for individuals willing to walk and socialize with the animals waiting for their forever families; click here for more information! The Animal Welfare League of Frederick is always looking for helpers, too.
  4. Even KAH’s mascot Moe got in on the Santa Paws photos!

    Visit Kylie & Cricket events—like Santa Paws or Haunted Hospital—to meet new friends and contribute to a worthy cause. Check Kingsbrook Animal Hospital’s Facebook page or the Kylie & Cricket website for more event information.

  5. When all else fails, anyone can make a direct donation to the Kylie & Cricket Memorial Fund. For pet owners with a busy schedule who are looking to make a difference, this is a fast and easy way to give back this year! Donations can be made on the Kylie & Cricket Memorial website, or in person at KAH.

Kylie and Cricket Fund helps Coconut

Thanks again to everyone for your support at the Paws and Claws 5K. Because of our generous clients, we are able to continue to help many animals in need. So far, with the help of your donations, we have purchased nearly $1,000 worth of food for local animal shelters! We have also ordered indestructible Kongs for the many dogs that live at the local Frederick Maryland shelters that are waiting for their forever home. We will be updating you as these orders come in and are delivered directly to animals who need them most.
In addition to the food and toys that were donated, we have also decided to sponsor a homeless kitty in need of medical care. We would like you to meet Coconut.
Coconut is a 6 year old female spayed kitty that is currently available for adoption and living at Frederick County Animal Control (FCAC). While Coconut is a very sweet and affectionate girl, she has not yet been adopted, possibly due to some medical concerns. That is where Kingsbrook Animal Hospital and the donations made to the Kylie and Cricket Fund helped! Because of your donations, KAH was able to address those concerns so that she has a better chance at finding her new home. When we first met Coconut, she had severe dental disease and a heart murmur. Through the Kylie and Cricket Fund, KAH was able to perform blood work and radiographs on Coconut.  After assessing her anesthetic risk, she then received a dental exam and cleaning. While reviewing full mouth dental x-rays, Dr. Davis confirmed that her teeth cleaned up nicely and no extractions were necessary!
Coconut is now all set to move into her forever home!  She is a sweet, beautiful girl who enjoys friendly people, playing with her toy mouse, and taking long naps on the couch. Please contact Frederick County Animal Control for more information regarding her adoption. Thanks again to all those who donated to the Kylie and Cricket Fund which allowed us to help Coconut and other animals in need.
