Roncesvalles Animal Hospital has partnered the Farley Foundation to raise funds for families in need or helping their pets during the fundraise for Farley month.

The Farley Foundation helps low-income pet owners in Ontario by subsidizing the cost of non-elective veterinary care for their sick or injured pets.

We have set up an online donate here https://www.canadahelps.org/…/roncesvalles-animal…/ or you can give a cash or credit donation in clinic till the end of October.

May 2021 and ongoing volunteer with CABB

Roncesvalles Animal Hospital has partnered with the Canadian Animal Blood Bank (CABB), to receive blood donations from selected candidates within the community and beyond.

The CABB is dedicated to improving veterinary care by providing blood products for animals that require transfusion therapy as part of their treatment. CABB is located in Winnipeg, MB where the majority of collections and component production occurs. Satellite collection sites are in Calgary, Cochrane, and Edmonton, AB; various Southern Ontario locations; Montreal, QC, and Moncton, NB.

July – September 2020

The Roncesvalles Animal Hospital team is putting on their helmets to ride for Farley’s. Laura, Dianna and Disha will be peddling 25 km in September 2020 to raise funds to help pets in need.

Unfortunately, we see too many pets not getting the treatment they need, and with whatever you can donate, we can help a lot.  Alternately, join our team and raise funds along side us, help pets in need and enjoy the ride.

Thank you for all your support and stay safe.

In September, three of our team members will be taking part in the Farley Foundation bike ride to raise funds for veterinary care for owners who are in financial difficulty, especially in cases such as emergencies and unexpected costs. When you donate to the Farley Foundation you are helping an owner keep their furry family member happy and healthy and helping a fur baby receive the veterinary care they need. Please consider donating to us. Any small amount goes a long way.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, our Local Hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Center approached us for some help with supplying PPE to their front line workers. We were glad to donate a few boxes of gloves to keep our healthcare teams as safe as possible.   As a community we need to try our best to support each other when we can, especially those risking their lives for us.

An article with 680 news, Dr. Hana Schwarz states;

One Toronto vet said she’s desperately hoping her west-end clinic will make the list. Dr. Hana Schwarz said she has seen no drop in the need for her services since the pandemic brought large swaths of Canadian society to a standstill last week. She said it’s vital to allow offices like hers to remain open, noting that there is no true alternative to specialized animal care even when it comes to prescribing routine medication. “About 75 to 80 per cent of the supply that we will prescribe … are veterinary prescriptions that may not be available at a pet store or a regular human pharmacy,” she said. Closing community clinics also risks forcing members of the public to put themselves at needless risk by using public transit to access scarce emergency animal care resources, she added.
