Dodgeville Veterinary Service (DVS), an American Animal Hospital Association certified practice in Dodgeville, announced that in 2016 their care team provided care for 31 local animals in need of help.
Jamie Holter, Practice Manager, stated, “In 2016, we helped 31 pets with over $6,000 dollars in services, whether it was a stray from the Iowa County Humane Society, a good Samaritan or someone in financial need.”
Dodgeville Veterinary Services utilizes a program developed by MBF Loyalty, LLC that allows clients to earn 5% back on every dollar spent at DVS. One percent of the invoice is also contributed to the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund (AVMF). The AVMF, managed by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation, serves as Dodgeville Veterinary Service’s umbrella 501(c)(3). Through the AVMF, DVS is able to offer low or no-cost services to clients who may otherwise be forced to surrender or euthanize their beloved pets.
“Clients can register or access their rewards account through a portal that is integrated into our website and mobile application,” Holter continued. “Not only are we providing a nice way for pet owners to contribute to the well-being of local pets in need, but in doing so they are also earning rewards for themselves which benefits both our clients, their pets and our practice.”
