People often assume that because the Spartanburg Humane Society has an in-house veterinary clinic, we also have the resources to treat all sick or injured animals, regardless of their condition.
In actuality, the financial demands of providing excellent care for nearly 7,000 animals a year, combined with the extra cost of special veterinary treatments, limit our ability to meet unique medical needs.
The Guardian Angel fund was established by SHS staff, volunteers, and friends as a way to cover expenses for treatment above and beyond the regular veterinary services animals receive while in our care.
Guardian Angels have helped the SHS cover the cost of treatment for heartworm disease, injuries, illnesses, and long-term neglect, thereby removing these conditions as barriers for pets finding a good home.
When confronted with so many innocent dogs and cats who do not have a second chance, the Guardian Angel Fund is truly a blessing . . .to deserving animals, to the families who adopt them into their homes and hearts, and to all of us at who celebrate every life saved.
