Hi!  I'm Chris Seaton. Nice to meet you. 

My wife is the veterinarian for Prevent A Litter Connections, a mobile spay/neuter clinic providing those surgeries to low income families.  They do this through a mobile clinic and travel to various counties in East Tennessee.  

This morning, one of the PAL staff arrived at the mobile to find an intoxicated man rummaging through the mobile clinic's supplies.  He busted the side window pictured, damaged the steering column, and tore through surgical supplies in his (likely) quest to find drugs before driving off with the van.  

Now the mobile is unusable.  As I write this, staff is assessing the damage with regards to inventory.  With the window damaged (one I'm informed no longer exists) and the steering column inoperable PAL can't drive to the families to which they provide services, families that can't afford to pay a traditional vet for a crucial procedure. 

But for the actions of one slimeball, today PAL could have helped thirty families.  There's question as to whether they'll be able to help the scheduled thirty one tomorrow.  That's why your donations are so important and greatly appreciated.  

The head of Prevent a Litter is one of the kindest people I've ever met.  Her work in making sure families spay and neuter their pets without going out of pocket is laudable.  That's why this is so important to me, and also why I'm so thankful you chose to give.

Hi everybody!

So you might notice the total requested has gone down. That's because PAL has been able to assess the damage and get estimates on full repairs, and $1,000 should cover it all.

Please, if you have the funds to spare, any donation helps. If you can't donate money, that's cool, sharing this campaign also does a lot of good. And again, thank you to everyone for your support.

I'm honestly floored with each and every donation. Since this campaign went live yesterday people have donated over four hundred dollars. From the bottom of my heart, than you, and I am making it a point to personally thank each donor.

The Greene County clinic will continue as scheduled tomorrow. The steering column damage wasn't as bad as originally estimated, and the mobile's been deemed "drivable." The busted window was replaced with a plexiglass panel. I'm unsure of any other damages or repairs necessary, so I'm getting information as I write this.

All the proceeds will go to Prevent a Litter for the "temporary fixes" they've achieved, plus any other damage to the mobile.

Again, thank you all.

Wow! Almost $250 raised in two hours! Thanks to everyone! We've been informed there's a "temporary fix" allowing the 31 Morristown surgeries for tomorrow. The next day the RV has to make it to Greene County, and with a damaged steering column that won't happen. Please keep sharing and donating. And thank you all!

East TN is lucky to have the PAL unit to provide affordable spay/neuter! Let's get it back on the road soon!
