We are so excited and thankful that we have been awarded a grant in the amount of $7,500 from the Phalia M. and Guy M. Kinder Fund of Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia! This grant will benefit our Sara Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund. This fund provides financing for medical procedures and behavioral assessments outside the scope of our in-house clinic that greatly enhances the adoptability of a deserving animal.
Over the years, this fund has been used to help a variety of our animals with medical complications. From mild upper respiratory infections to more serious illnesses and diseases including cancer, the Sara Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund allows us to save more animals in our community. We’re so thankful for donations and grants like the Phalia M. and Guy M. Kinder Fund of Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia for helping us continue this life saving work!
Sara Jane and Mickey were two very special dogs given a second chance at life. They proved themselves worthy of that second chance many times over during their lives – giving back in service, love, and companionship. In their memory, the Sara Jane and Mickey Second Chance Fund was created to assist other animals at the Roanoke Valley SPCA.
