MAHF’s First Companion Animal Fund Recipient Chosen

Meet Kitty Kat, a beloved, 11-year-old feline! She was a patient of Dr. Michael Merrithew at Veterinary House Call Services & Clinic. Kitty Kat had a ruptured anal gland abscess and was very uncomfortable. Her owner was on WIC and unable to pay for her surgery.  

When Kitty Kat’s owner could not afford the surgery, Dr. Merrithew thought of the Michigan Animal Health Foundation’s Companion Animal Fund and had a team member apply for funding. Within a few hours, the Foundation approved the application and covered the cost. Kitty Kat is now on the mend and her owner is very happy!
