Urgent Care Fund
The Zenna Sayre Urgent Care Fund
The Zenna Sayre Urgent Care Fund is an annual drive to help cover medical supplies and veterinary costs for our shelter animals.
The homeless and mistreated animals in Licking County rely on us to meet their most basic needs as well as any medical needs that arise. Through the Zenna Sayre Urgent Care Fund, LCHS will be able to serve these vulnerable creatures, providing for their routine veterinary care, their specialized emergency needs and their general health and well-being.
With an annual goal of $100,000, we can ensure that each and every animal in the shelter receives the medical care it so desperately needs and deserves.
The fund will help cover
- Medically necessary procedures
- Heartworm testing
- Feline leukemia testing
- Spay/neuter & emergency surgeries
- Microchipping all animals
My new best friend was saved from a cage in the back of a mini van holding more than 60 dogs. They weren’t nursed back to health, because they’d never been healthy. The LCHS provided medical attention and care, and I thank them for uniting us. – Mindy Drayer, NBC4
With great strides, come great challenges
The Licking County Humane Society has seen major growth in the last 4-5 years. As a result, we’ve been able to match many more pets with forever homes! Along with that growth, however, comes the challenge of caring for so many animals between the time we take them in and their placement into a new home.
Adoptions 2008 – 2017
Veterinary costs & Medical Expenses 2015 – 2017
Zenna Sayre (1922 – 2015) was a long time friend of the shelter. She loved all animals, especially Standard Poodles and her cats. Shortly before her passing, she established the Zenna Sayre Urgent Care Fund to help with the medical expenses for pets at the shelter. Zenna cared deeply about animals and her legacy and impact on the Licking County Humane Society will be forever remembered. In her honor, LCHS holds the “Save a Life” campaign. This campaign allows LCHS to provide life-saving medical care and other medical services such as: spay/neuter, vaccines, emergency surgeries, testing and microchipping for the shelter animals.
