Letter from the President

Letter from the President:

Thank you for your past and continued support in helping us help the animals at TCWR. You have been a blessing to the Refuge and our mission.

I am excited to announce the grand opening of our on-site Jackson’s Memorial Veterinary Hospital, Thursday, August 18, at 2 p.m. The hospital is named in memory of my family and I hope you can join our staff, board members and community in celebrating this milestone. Beyond functioning as a valuable health care facility, the hospital has live-streaming and video conferencing capabilities, and will serve as an important education tool for future veterinary students and industry professionals. Please arrive at the Refuge 30 minutes early to take advantage of complimentary shuttle service to the hospital, as well as light hors d’oeuvres, drinks and a tour of the facility.

While we have had over 800 supporters donate towards this project, I want to reach out to you before a commemorative sign is made next week. The building is completely funded, but we are approximately $20,000 short of our goal to equip the hospital with the supplies and medication needed to perform surgeries. All supporters donating $5,000 and above will be honored on the commemorative sign, and I’d like to give you the opportunity to be recognized.

We would love to be able to honor you or a loved one on the commemorative sign, but time is of the essence, so please let me know if you can help.

Thank you for your continued support,
Tanya Smith
Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge President
