Woofstock was not only a real howl this year, it was also a huge success for the Bristol Humane Society Margaret B. Mitchell Spay/Neuter Clinic. The event, which takes place at Sugar Hollow in Bristol, Virginia, is the clinic’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
Fetching Apparel wants to thank MBM for inviting us to Woofstock again. We were proud to be able to donate $500 to the facility following the festivities.
We are looking forward to donating even more, thanks to the generous support of Dr. Genie O’Neal at the Abingdon Animal Medical Center and the unbelievable embroidery and applique donations of Amber Arrington of 222 Stitches.
The MBM Clinic has an important role in our community. Its mission is to provide targeted, high-volume, reduced-cost spay and neuter services in an effort to reduce the dog and cat over-population problem in southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee, where the euthanasia rate for homeless pets remains high.
Across the region, 47 percent of dogs and 78 percent of cats that end up in a shelter are euthanized. Some individual counties have local numbers of nearly 100 percent of all cats in their shelter being euthanized.
The clinic’s vision is to end the need to euthanize healthy, adoptable dogs and cats by reducing the number of dogs and cats that enter the region’s shelters.
And we at Fetching Apparel are 100% behind that mission! That’s why the MBM Spay/Neuter Clinic is one of the charities Fetching Apparel supports, along with Happy Tails Animal Rescue of Washington County, Virginia (the group’s founder saved our rescue dog Jeffrey — the Fetching Apparel mascot — from being euthanized).
You can also help support our mission by shopping now.
The more we grow, the more we can do when it comes to reducing the homeless pet population.
