The Regina Humane Society (RHS) depends on many individuals and organizations to be able to deliver the programs and services that it does each and every day. The Society is very proud of the partnership that has been built over many years with Regina’s veterinary community. A shining example is Careport Animal Hospital (formerly Airport Animal Hospital).
Since 2012, Careport Animal Hospital (CAH) has donated monthly spay and neuter surgeries for pets that have been adopted from the RHS. In that time, over 600 surgeries have been performed on shelter animals by CAH!
CAH owner Dr. Melissa Hunchak sees her hospital’s relationship with the RHS as a way to make a difference for the animals in our community and to be a respectable and caring corporate citizen. The hospital rebranded earlier this year and one of the main reasons to change the name from Airport to Careport was to showcase how much caring is a part of what they do. Helping the RHS exemplifies their hospital vision “We care for you like family” and has been a wonderful way to showcase how much they care for the animals in our community. By donating surgeries to the RHS they are able to relieve some of the pressure on the RHS and their resources as well as allowing their team to be a bigger part of the pet overpopulation problem. “Our team really likes to help out as well”, Dr. Hunchak says. “They recognize that they are helping beyond just our regular scope of practice”. As her front-line team deal directly with the public each day, they often receive the thanks from adopters – providing a sense of satisfaction and pride for her entire team.
The RHS extends its deepest and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Hunchak and the Careport Animal Hospital team for their dedication to improving the lives of animals and people in our community.
