Help Us Spread the Love with Noah's Rest
It's the season of love, and we'd like to introduce you to our Valentine - Noah's Rest! Noah's Rest is a non-profit organization that provides temporary shelter for the pets of victims of domestic violence, allowing those that have been abused to escape and seek safety.
Did you know that 40% of women seeking shelter have said that concern for their pet prevented them doing so earlier? Thanks to Noah’s Rest, no one is forced to choose between abandoning a beloved pet and staying in an abusive relationship. They partner with A Safe Place, the Lake County State's Attorney's office, local domestic violence shelters, city, county, and state police, local animal control officers, social services, and many other individuals who want to end abuse and help break the cycle of family violence.
All services provided are free to pet owners. Noah's Rest depends on financial assistance to make this happen. This cause is very close to our heart – we hope you will help us spread the love! Please consider donating to Noah's Rest during your next visit, or mail your donation to us at 1221 Green Bay Road, Wilmette, IL.
Thanks in advance for your support!
Dr. Periman Headed to Puerto Rico to Help With Relief Efforts
Our very own Dr. Erica Periman, along with her cohort of volunteer veterinarians and veterinary technicians, has been asked by FEMA and the Humane Society of the United States to take their skills to Puerto Rico to help with the recovery effort.
Dr. Periman has been volunteering for the non-profit organization VIDAS doing high-volume spay and neuter campaigns in Mexico since 2004. In order to maintain the high standards with which these campaigns are performed by VIDAS in Mexico, all of the surgical equipment including surgery tables, portable anesthesia machines, surgical instruments, and supplies will be shipped to Puerto Rico for the 10 day campaign in March of 2018.
This is a great new opportunity for VIDAS to help where there is such a need due to the massive devastation caused by hurricane Maria last September. We are very proud of Dr. Periman's work with VIDAS, and she is excited to be a member of the Puerto Rico team. Please join us in wishing her the very best on this trip!
If you have any questions about the work, please feel free to call us at (847) 251-5900.
