Earlier this year, LendCare launched financing for veterinary services, with the goal of making veterinary care more affordable and accessible for pet owners across Canada.
To show how invested we are in animal wellness, we reached out to the Toronto Humane Society to help them cover over $100,000 in vet bills for surrendered animals in need. Due to the financial constraints that have come along with COVID-19, many pet owners were forced to surrender their pets, a number of which, needed costly medical attention.
We saw a need, and we wanted to help. So, we donated an initial amount of $5,000. Then created a donor matching initiative, pledging to match donations made to the program, up to another $5,000. Within a few short days, that goal was exceeded. We then used that momentum to match up to another $5,000, for a total of $20,000 raised through our donor matching initiative - but the momentum didn’t stop there…
Through the donation matching initiative and additional donations from many of our partners, we exceeded all expectations, raising a final grand total of $33,995 for such an amazing cause!
We are so thankful for this opportunity to help the Toronto Humane Society, and want to remind everyone that, even though our campaign has ended, you can always donate to the Toronto Humane Society via their website.
We want to thank all our partners, employees and everyone else for their donations, and helping us, help these animals on their road to recovery! We truly appreciate your assistance with this campaign, and your generosity that lead to making a real difference in these animals’ lives.
Whether you are an existing client or brand new to LendCare, you can access financing for automotive repairs, healthcare (including dental and vision), and trips to the vet.
