Help Us Help Homeless OC Pets – Saturday May 15th

Please join us for our second annual Flea Market for Fleabags Fundraiser and Dog Wash!

Bombay, Lily, and Peanut Butter

Bombay, Lily, and Peanut Butter

Help us help homeless OC pets – the need has never been greater! Many good family pets have tragically lost their homes during this real estate/financial crisis and are being surrendered to animal shelters. Local rescue groups are working around the clock to save as many needy dogs and cats as they possibly can! They need our help and more available foster homes. Got stuff you don’t need? Can you share your home and be a foster pet parent?

Please donate your good reusable items for this very worthy cause. We are accepting donations Monday thru Friday – May 10th to May 14th during regular business hours at Founders Veterinary Clinic 330 N Brea Blvd, Brea. Fundraiser begins Saturday May 15th at 9am until 3pm.

Donate and hunt for bargain treasures! Dog wash on site for a doggy bubble bath while you shop. All proceeds from this fundraiser – including our dog wash – will support our Founders Pet Sponsorship Program.

Please forward this information inviting your friends and family, too! And help us find homes for our three wonderful foster pets – Peanut Butter, Bombay, and Lily. So, what is Peanut Butter made of? Find out next week when we announce her pedigree and see if you are a winner!

It’s not too late. Vote here.

What is he or she? For sure your dog’s got a fluffy tail, long body, pointy ears, and the personality of a Labrador.

Pet Health Insurance — You can’t afford to be without it!

Me sharing a moment of affection with my rescued pit bull mix, Brad Pit. I just purchased Petplan for him (one of the companies we are reviewing) with coverage up to $20,000 per year for a monthly payment of $36. Yes, even vets need pet insurance!

An unexpected illness or injury could cost you thousands of dollars to save your beloved pet. At Founders, we worry that you could be forced to make critical health care decisions based on cost alone. That’s why a good pet insurance policy is so important for your peace of mind and ours too! You can’t predict the future of your pet’s health, but you can prepare for it. We can help you make the best choice.

Welcome to Founders Undercover!

Tiffanie with hospital goof-ball Brad Pit.

Tiffanie with hospital goof-ball Brad Pit.

Hello, I am Tiffanie. I’m a student at Cal Poly Pomona, the same university where Dr. Terifaj did her undergraduate studies before transferring to UC Davis to earn her veterinary degree — just an FYI. I will be graduating soon and taking the state test to become a licensed veterinary technician. I’ve been working part time at Founders for the last 2 years — learning a lot about the veterinary profession and getting some great paws on experience! You may have met me in an exam room, helping the doctor or greeting you and your pet at the front desk. Today, I have the pleasure of welcoming you to Founders Undercover, our new blog!

Our dedicated staff (veterinary technicians, office personal, groomers, and the docs!) has decided to share our experiences — the good, the bad, and the funny — about what it’s like to work behind the scenes at a veterinary practice. We call Founders Undercover our own version of Animal Planet! One of us will post something of interest each week about stuff that happens here at Founders in hopes that you find it inspirational, educational, or just plain fun…

We welcome you to leave comments and share your stories, too! However, should you have any medical questions that concern your pet, please call us at Founders Veterinary Clinic, 714-990-0661, for advice.

Don’t forget to visit us weekly for new updates — we are going to TELL IT ALL.  And please tell your pet lover friends to join us…thanks!

–Tiffanie
