Doney Coe’s work has been made possible in part by our valued partners

Doney Coe Pet Clinic has been supported for 35 years by generous partners. We strive for sustainability and are mindful of using your donations towards our core mission of veterinary care for animals. Thanks to our partners, we have access to discounted medication, surgeries, and other medical treatments, supplies such as food, beds, leashes and harnesses, and a ‘home’ for our clinic.

Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine

Doney Coe Pet Clinic was founded by Cougars and proudly continues this legacy as a partner in their community outreach program. Veterinary care is provided at a Saturday Doney Coe Pet Clinic by DVM students on rotation at Seattle Humane under the supervision of Dr. Katie Kuehl. The students can work alongside volunteer veterinarians and gain an understanding of providing care to an underserved population.

One Health Clinic

The One Health Clinic is a place where youth experiencing homelessness with companion animals can get medical and veterinary care in a side-by-side setting to improve the health of the whole family. The Clinic is a partnership between Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine and the University of Washington Center for One Health Research.

Food and Supply Partners: Pawsitive Alliance and Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC)

When the pandemic brought the world to a halt, we reassessed our efficiency with storage and quality control of dog and cat food and other supplies. One of the silver linings of the pandemic was that Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) expanded their work with several public and private organizations to provide pet food and supplies to the communities we serve.

We now refer Doney Coe clients to these food banks and stopped offering supplies. The focus on our core mission of veterinary care opened the door to a collaboration with Pawsitive Alliance. They specialize in supplies and have a dedicated volunteer team. The partnership has blossomed to a ‘Supply no-cost Shop’ for our clients at the clinic once a month. Supply donors can drop off donations and meet both organizations’ teams.

Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) is working with several public and private organizations to provide pet food and supplies to the communities we serve. Thanks to the generous donations of national charities, RASKC is working together to distribute food to various locations.

Mobile pet food banks are also organized throughout the King County area. Doney Coe Pet Clinic encourages families with pets to access these food banks during times of need.

Facility Partners: Trupanion, Urban Animal Hospital, and Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Association

Doney Coe Pet Clinic can set up clinic operations most anywhere within 2 hours while maintaining compliance with all standards in veterinary care. The generous and community-minded organizations that provide the space and facilities for the clinics are invaluable. When the Washington State stay-at-home order began in March 2020, clinic operations at UGM ceased.

When veterinary clinics were allowed to open again, Doney Coe Pet Clinic could start operating again in an outdoor location provided by Trupanion Pet Insurance. The location provided the clinic with the ability to follow the protocols of WSVMA and keep clients, volunteers, and animals safe and healthy. On July 11, 2020, Trupanion Pet Insurance offered to host the clinic in their parking lot. Doney Coe Pet Clinic @ Trupanion began offering veterinary care under large tents.

As the cold months approached, the Phinney Ridge community center allowed us to use their parking lot and large event room. When the weather turned warm, the clinic returned to the Trupanion parking lot. During a time when many of our peers remained shut down, the generosity and flexibility of Trupanion and Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Association allowed the clinic to operate through the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.

Once again, the cool weather is approaching and with the generosity of Urban Animal we can operate the clinic indoors. With the ongoing pandemic and winter upon us, we are now able to run the clinic as a hybrid. Indoors, at one of the Urban Animal locations or outdoors, at Trupanion.
