We believe that it is our responsibility to share our success with our local and global community. Our participation in charitable causes, both human and animal, is our way of doing so.
THE FARLEY FOUNDATION
Dr. Cowper & Dr. Croft being presented with the 2018 Friend of Farley Award
Every year we also ask our Chicopee Hills Family to participate in our Fundraise for Farley month and we are never disappointed. It is heartwarming to know we are surrounded by such a caring and generous community.
Veterinarians have long recognized the special and important relationship that exists between people and their pets. It has become widely recognized that this human animal bond contributes to the health and well being of humans in many ways.
In 2001, The Farley Foundation was established by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) to provide subsidized medical and emergency veterinary care to people who could otherwise not afford it. The Farley Foundation has raised over 1 million dollars and helped over 11,500 pets since opening its doors in 2002.
Chicopee Hills Animal Hospital has been involved with this wonderful foundation since its inception through our participation in Farley Fun Days and the Ride for Farley.
