“This animal is the only thing that keeps them going. The human-animal bond is like nothing I have seen. Because this is it. These animals trust these people with their lives.”

OUR STORY

In 1985, Dr. Bud Doney was walking at Pike Place Market with his wife Nancy and saw many homeless and low-income people with pets. They knew that the pets they saw that day were not getting the vaccinations or preventative veterinary care needed.

Dr. Doney set up a clinic that offered veterinary care for the pets of Seattle ’s homeless and low-income residents. After Dr. Doney passed away, Dr. Stan Coe and some volunteers continued his legacy by starting Doney Memorial Pet Clinic.

Thirty-two years later, in 2018,  the clinic is renamed the Doney Coe Pet Clinic in honor of the vision and leadership of Dr. Coe in building on Dr. Doney’s legacy for many generations of pets.

“Some of these people are able to stay clean, or sober, or just alive, because they’ve made a commitment to a pet; because they feel needed by this animal and don’t want to let it down. That’s something. There’s hope in that feeling, and maybe a way forward.”
