Visit your local veterinary clinic during the month of October to help
support people and pets in need across Ontario
MILTON, ON, Sept. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - With the generous backing of our
first ever title sponsor, the P&G Pet Care Fundraise for Farley Month promises to be a real "treat" for everyone involved.
Nearly 300 veterinary practices across Ontario will hold individual
fundraising and awareness campaigns throughout the month of October in
honour of the Farley Foundation, a charitable organization which
assists low-income seniors, disabled individuals, and women at risk of
abuse* by subsidizing the non-elective/emergency veterinary care of the
pets that mean the world to them.
Be a veterinarian for a day, shave-your-vet-bald, petting zoos, animal
fairs, marathons, pet beauty contests, Santa photos, antique car shows,
comedy nights at local bars, bake sales... veterinary clinics and
hospitals really go all out during the annual P&G Pet Care Fundraise
for Farley Month.
To help with their campaigns, the Foundation is arming veterinarians
with lots of wonderful gifts for donors. Visit your veterinary clinic
to find out how you can get:
Our new, cool 2-in-1 collapsible (fabric) water/food bowls - great for
traveling with your pets
New, colourful Farley Foundation tattoos for kids of all ages
Plus, P&G Pet Care (manufacturer of IAMS, IAMS Veterinary Formula and
Eukanuba pet foods) has donated 13,000 boxes of IAMS ProActive HealthTM Biscuits!
The 2010 campaign raised close to $175,000. This year's campaign hopes
to raise more than $200,000. Visit an Ontario veterinary clinic during
the P&G Pet Care Fundraise for Farley Month campaign (October) and help
us make a difference to people and pets in need.
To date, the Farley Foundation has disbursed over $1,200,000 to assist
3,100 people and pets across Ontario. Read about the people and pets
we've helped to date, find more details about the Farley Foundation or

Established in 2001 by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, the
Farley Foundation assists low-income seniors, disabled individuals and
women at risk of abuse (participants of the OVMA SafePet Program) by
subsidizing the non-elective veterinary care of the pets that mean the
world to them. Applications for Farley Foundation funding are made
through veterinary clinics. Anyone concerned about the health of their
pets should seek the assistance of their regular veterinarian.
