Absecon Veterinary Hospital will host the second annual Bark in the Park fundraising event for dogs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 17 at the Atlantic County 4H Fairgrounds, 3210 Route 50 in the South Egg Harbor section of the township. of Galloway.
The event will benefit the hospital’s 501(c)3 charity, Laddie’s Legacy, which commemorates the life of Laddie, a large, beautiful Maine Coon cat who was released to the hospital because his owner could not not pay the increased medical bills. The charity was created not only to remember Laddie, but also to help other families in financial need when their pet faces a health crisis.
“We are honored to bring this event to the community again this year,” said Cherie Scheurich, Hospital Administrator and Laddie’s Legacy Board Member. “This is a great way to raise funds to support Laddie’s Legacy, which seeks to alleviate this heartbreaking decision by helping pet owners help offset the financial burden of emergency care when the pet has a favorable outcome. We believe that the place of loving and cherished animals in families should never be threatened by concerns about the cost of unforeseen veterinary care.
