VetStrategy’s Morinville Veterinary Clinic featured in St. Albert Gazette
On Wednesday, August 7th VetStrategy’s Morinville Veterinary Clinic in Morinville, Alberta was featured in a neighbouring town’s local newspaper, The St. Albert Gazette.
The St. Albert Gazette is a twice-weekly publication out of St. Albert, AB about 20 kms south of Morinville. The two towns share certain rural aspects and they also have another commonality: homeless cats.
Morinville Veterinary Clinic is a large facility and has had the capability to take in most strays in the Town of Morinville. However, the town seems to be infinitely filled with a number of cats ending up without a place to live. Morinville Vet Clinic has always been committed to caring for and safely re-homing any stray, feral or homeless animal that comes through their door however, with the amount of cats becoming overwhelming at times, clinic staff have opted to focus on a more proactive approach: advocacy for local adoption.
Morinville Veterinary Clinic has teamed up with another local organization: The Hervey Foundation for Cats. The Hervey Foundation and MVC share many of the same values, therefore the partnership has come as a natural one. The two have committed to each other that they will work together to re-home as many felines in the area as possible and have a positive outlook on how their partnership will increase or, at minimum, steady adoption numbers.
