Your Delton vet team is active in your #yeg community. Each of our team members involves themselves with various fundraising initiatives.
Giving Back to the #yeg Community
Some of the charities close to our hearts include: Kids with Cancer; Girl Guides of Canada; Prostate Cancer Canada; Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada; Hope Mission; Edmonton Humane Society’s Pets in the Park, Western College of Veterinary Medicine’s Companion Animal Health Fund, and Edmonton Public School’s Read In Week.
As a team we are all active members of Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) and our hospital provides free first checkups to newly adopted pets from EHS; we solicit and raise money for EHS’s annual Pets In The Park event and we sell cards hand made by Dr. Collis’s mom all year round at our front desk (come see our lovely selection of birthday and special occasion greeting cards).
Delton Veterinary Hospital also regularly donates time to sick or injured wildlife because of our affiliation with the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Edmonton (WRSE) through the efforts of WRSE founder, and previous long-time team member, Kim Blomme, RVT. One of Dr. Person’s most memorable cases for 2012 was surgically repairing the broken leg of a week-old fawn.
