Routine veterinary care is expensive enough, but what happens when your pet suffers a debilitating illness or accident? Jackie Barnett’s Just Like New (JLN) fund exists to help cover one-time emergency costs so your pet doesn’t have to be euthanized simply because you can’t afford the bill. Rescued animals that are sick or injured also qualify for assistance through the fund.
The Animal Lover’s Boutique, which features unique animal-themed gifts for people and animals, raises money for the JLN fund. The boutique is located year-round in the lobby of Feline Medical Center, 3160 Santa Rita Road in Pleasanton. It is open weekdays from 8 am – 6 pm (closed 12:30-1:30 pm for lunch).
Monetary donations may also be made, and are always appreciated. JLN volunteers also make catnip pillows filled with potent homegrown catnip, which sell for $2.50 plus tax. Pick up one for your ‘nip lover at VHS or any of the following Tri-Valley locations:
