Help Scout's House Help More Pets

Raised by 122 people in 2 months
Scout's House is facing an expensive move.  Please help us make the transition. 

   On August 31st, Scout's House  has to leave the place we've called home for the last 13 years.  And while we're grateful for the time we've spent across from the Menlo Park train station, we're a little worried too.  The truth is we struggle everyday to keep our costs down so that we can pay a living wage to our employees and a Silicon Valley rent while still helping all the dogs and cats in our community who need the transformative benefits of physical rehabilitation therapy.   

But this move is putting a big strain on our finances--which is why we're asking for your help.  

   With your donation, we can ensure that Scout's House can avoid laying off Krista and Andrea while we get our new space ready, that we'll have the money to pay our contractor to modify the new site for our hydrotreadmill, and that we'll have enough left over to get us through while we rebuild our business.  

   As a Scout's House client or friend, you understand the difference we've made in the lives of the 3000+ elderly, injured, and ill dogs and cats we've treated since we opened in 2005.  Family pets like your own, K9 Unit dogs from local law enforcement agencies, assistance dogs, and pets from local shelters have all sought--and received--help and relief from Scout's House over the last 13 years.  And while you've supported us in the past by trusting us to help your pet, we're hoping you can support us again as we make the transition from Menlo Park to San Mateo.  

   Please give what you can.  Please share this with your friends.  And please let everyone know that Scout's House is a place worth saving.  

Thank you, with love and gratitude from Lisa--and Scout32301004_1534801387262821_r.jpeg

An update for our clients and friends:
Our new space still isn't ready due to permitting issues, but (here's the good news!) we're now offering Initial Exams with Home Exercise Programs (HEPs) so that our new clients can start their pets’ recoveries at home (and be ready to start regular rehab therapy as soon as we reopen). Returning clients whose pets need reevaluations and/or an update to existing HEPs may come in, as well.
Using a borrowed space at 251 North Amphlett Blvd (next door to where our new space will be), our Director of Rehab Therapy Krista Niebaum, MPT, CCRT, and Supervising Veterinarian Leigh Stevens, DVM (or other staff veterinarian) will conduct an hourlong rehab examination of your pet and give you a comprehensive Home Exercise Program tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call us at (650) 328-1430.

Our thanks to all of you for your generosity in helping us through this transition. We wish we could report that we're moved in but our landlord's been held up by the City of San Mateo permitting process, which has pushed back our move-in date yet again. We're hoping for a November 1st move in, but only time will tell. Positive thoughts!

WE DID IT!!!

We reached our goal, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping Scout's House.

We'll keep the campaign open since every dollar we make from here on out will buy us more time to rebuild our practice after the move.

But we wanted to acknowledge the support from each and every one of you now. THANK YOU. We couldn't have done it without you.

To our friends--
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the response we've seen to our campaign to help Scout's House. As of this morning, we're only $1002 away from reaching our goal, thanks to you and other Scout's House clients and friends.
We truly believe the work we do plays a critical role in keeping our animal family members healthier and happier as they age, manage illness, or recover from injury. And based on the comments we've heard from all of you, it's clear you agree. So a heartfelt hug and thank you from all of us at Scout's House; we are so grateful for all YOU do for us!
