At Dutchess County Animal Hospital, we consider ourselves much more than just an animal clinic. Sure, our goal is to help local pet parents keep their animal family members happy and healthy. In addition, our mission is to also help as many people in this world as we possibly can. You see, we want to do more than just change the way vet care is delivered. We want to change the world for the better.
We know that with every client that we assist, we are improving the lives of pets. We are also making a significant impact on the lives of others across the globe through our ongoing commitment to Kiva loans.
Kiva is a non-profit organization that facilitates the lending of micro loans to help people around the world create opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities.
Our own team members are encouraged to select the loan recipients they’d like to support. Being able to read the stories of the various recipients and how they feel a loan will change their lives is an incredibly inspirational experience for all of us at Dutchess County Animal Hospital.
Examples of some of the more recent loans funded, so you can put a name to the face, include:
From the very beginning, we have always felt this is what animal health care should be all about… making a real impact, having fun, and helping people and pets along the way. Together we’re making as big a positive impact in the world as possible.
