WHO IS SPIRIT, and WHY A SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND?
Spirit Medical Fund
A Caring Community Working Together
The SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND was established after a brave little dachshund mix, later named Spirit, survived a horrific ordeal of animal cruelty. Spirit was found at the Oakhill Cemetery around Halloween 2000. She had been doused with gasoline, set on fire, and left to die. When found, she was close to death. Although she was in very poor health, she still had the will (& the SPIRIT) to live. In order for this to be possible, she needed costly medical treatments. The community reached out and provided us, through donations,with the needed money. This was the beginning of the SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND.
The SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND assists with needed medical care for stray, homeless and abandoned animals that arrive at Evansville-Vanderburgh Animal Care & Control.
The event is free & it is a family friendly event. Pets are welcome on a leash.
There will be AWESOME activities including Silent Auction, a dunking booth, MicroChipping, Pony/Horse Rides & much much more!!
