I’d like you to meet Simon. He is a beautiful 9 year old Lhasa Apso. Simon’s Mom, Deena, lost her job and found herself in a tough financial situation like so many others in the Tampa Bay area. She loves Simon and wants to keep him healthy and happy but with limited income due to the loss of her job, she found herself unable to afford the expensive veterinary services Simon needed for his annual vaccinations and the treatment of his skin allergies. She learned about the assistance provided by Canine Care Tampa Bay and applied for assistance. Within a couple days of receiving and approving her application, Simon went to visit the wonderful staff at the Vet Clinic of Palm Harbor (VCPH). Simon received a full wellness exam, heartworm test, distemper vaccination, fecal test, 1 year rabies vaccination, Florida license, treatment for his skin allergies, and a 6 month supply of Heartgard. The cost to Deena was minimal as Canine Care Tampa Bay covers the majority percentage of the cost of the necessary health care, which made it possible for Deena to get Simon the help he needed. After Simon’s visit to the VCPH, she responded to let me know….

“I am so grateful for Canine Care! Alicia, Dr. Shirley, and staff at the Vet Clinic of Palm Harbor were all so helpful, compassionate, and professional. They have given Simon a new life. He has so much more energy since his skin condition was cleared up. Thank you, what a great organization!”
