The Margaret & Isaac Barpal Veterinary Center
Remarkable growth, and a fantastic opportunity.
We’ve completely outgrown our temporary veterinary facility. With escalating demand for our services and more puppies training for noble careers as guide dogs, we’re bursting out of cramped examination rooms carved from repurposed storage space.
The need is critical and the need is now. Not only are our facilities full but there’s been a remarkable change in healthcare technology allowing for improved screening and treatment for our dogs. Our proposed Veterinary Center is mission-critical for keeping our dogs at peak health and optimum performance. Our planned facility reduces treatment times and improves crisis management resources such as quarantine, emergency treatment, and recovery facilities. It improves sanitation, air quality, odor control, and noise management.
The carefully crafted plan for the Center provides for a dedicated space for future genetics and reproduction operations. It allows for more on-campus treatments, reducing outside costs and lowering harmful stress on our dogs. And it enables us to schedule procedures appropriately.
Building this Veterinary Center will allow us to produce more puppies, keep our dogs healthier, lower the percentage of dogs removed from service due to health issues, reduce applicant waiting times, and shorten our waiting list. Amazing!
To ensure the healthiest dogs and the best outcomes for the people we serve, we can’t afford not to build this facility. And through the incredible generosity of Margaret and Isaac Barpal, we’ve made impressive progress. But we’re not done!
With your help, we’ll get to the finish line. And generations of dogs will experience the best possible medical care; while hundreds of visually impaired individuals will transform their lives as they travel with a Southeastern Guide Dog. Join us by donating today.
