January 26, 2018 – VREC teamed up again this year with Cooper’s Seafood House in Scranton again for their “Cask for a Cause” fundraiser program to benefit the Angel Fund. Susquehanna Brewing Company donated a special beer tapped only available for the event and the proceeds from its sale went directly to benefit the Fund. Patrons also had the opportunity to enter to win over 50 baskets and gift certificates from local and national companies. The event raised over $2,000.
VREC’s Angel Fund was developed shortly after the hospital’s opening in 2010. Its mission is to provide assistance in situations where financial burdens prevent pet owners from obtaining veterinary care. If a pet and owner qualify for the Angel Fund, our doctors donate 100% of their abilities and the facility donates any/all hospitalization and procedural fees. The only charges to the Angel Fund are costs associated with supplies and medications to aid in the recovery of the pet. Since inception, the Fund has helped provide essential (and oftentimes life-saving) care for over 120 animals. To make a donation to the Angel Fund, please click here.
