EUGENE, ORE.-- A low-cost veterinary clinic is running low on funds, and is reaching out to the community for help.
The Community Veterinary Center, off Highway 99, serves low-income pet owners. They price their services on a sliding scale, based on income. This means some pet owners pay full price, while others who can't afford it, don't pay anything at all.
Since the center has employees, they rely on donations. A spokesperson for the center said the community has fundraised in the past and hopes they will do it again, so they can continue offering their services in the future.
"The balance between trying to keep prices as low as possible and raise enough money to stay open and raise the money we need to keep all the medical supplies we need, it's just constant," Anne Bayton, a spokesperson for the Community Vet Center, said.
The center is also in the process of looking for a permanent veterinarian. Currently, they only have vets who fill-in.
To help the center, call them at 541-636-3324.
