Howler Pack Fundraiser - Gates Family

Hi my names Courtney and I’m creating this fundraiser for a very dear friend of mine who is an animal lover and a amazing coworker. I met Elaine through my work at MedVet Cincinnati. MedVet Cincinnati is a state-of-the-art emergency and specialty hospital for pets in the greater Cincinnati area. It’s a place filled with extraordinary veterinary professionals and people like my dear friend Elaine.
Elaine currently works in our Anesthesia department where she helps to monitor pets who are undergoing emergent life saving surgical procedures, as well as elective specialty procedures . She ensures that every pet is  treated with the best care before, during and after the surgical procedures. It takes an extraordinary  person with a passion  and love for animals to provide this type of care and service.
53355092_1608175131414919_r.jpegI’m managing this fundraiser to help Elaine and her family out in a time of need, like she has helped out so many others. Her husband  Theo has been critically ill for over two months now after dealing with Covid-19 as well as experiencing complications from having the virus. This hardship has caused an incredible burden on her family’s finances. Not being able to work full time due to her husbands critical condition has affected being able to care for her loved ones at home, lovingly called -“The Howler Pack”- 

I would like to raise money to help take care of her babies so this would be one less burden she has to worry about while trying to make sure her husband is recovering in the hospital. The money raised will go directly towards the veterinary services and care provided for the Howler Pack at the veterinary practice  who has graciously offered their services for the care of her fur babies. This money will cover any vaccines, heart worm prevention, flea and tick prevention, annual bloodwork, and more that her animals should need throughout the remainder of this year. This will give her family more time to get back on their feet once her husband Theo is home and recovering.

I would love to be able to cover the entire packs cost of veterinary services. Any amount donated is appreciated! 

Thank you all so much for reaching out and donating to a family in need during these difficult times!
