Most families would give anything for their pet, but the need for emergency care is often unpredictable. In 2001, several generous clients helped us establish the Winnie Healthcare Endowment or “Winnie Fund” to provide financial assistance for qualified families who can’t afford the recommended emergency treatments for their favorite companions.
The fund’s namesake, Winnie, was a loveable black cocker spaniel who started life homeless. After a local family adopted her, she had six puppies, and many still live in the Camden area. Winnie’s master remembers her large, dark, gentle eyes. Winnie, whose owners described her as a “sweetheart,” died at only eight years old.
Veterinarians and staff members at Wateree Animal Hospital must approve use of the fund. The fund is intended for clients who have an exceptional bond with their pet and case where the clients might need to consider euthanasia because they are unable to afford the cost of the recommended treatment. Since 2001, The Winnie Fund has helped hundreds of families enjoy more time with the pets they love. Contact us to send a memorial donation in memory or honor of a friend. We would also like to thank the people who have kindly shown there support.
