We thought that Doney Coe Pet Clinic had a long-term home in Haddon Hall, a historic building owned by Plymouth Housing. Unfortunately, it was a temporary stop on our journey to serve our community of pets and the people that love them.
Plymouth Housing has determined that the building is unsafe. The lease has been terminated, and Doney Coe needs to move out of the building at the end of April. There have been interruptions to water and electricity services to the building because of vandalism resulting in significant losses in refrigerated medicine and vaccines. We are bringing in our water to continue critical vet operations as long as we have the space.
Until we can find a suitable location, Doney Coe Pet Clinic will operate at Urban Animal in White Center on weekends. While we look for a new home, we will ensure the animals have access to sophisticated diagnostics and surgical interventions critical to their quality of life. This will be accomplished by funding the referrals to local animal hospitals at significantly higher costs.
During the last year, we learned that we must do this work; and are not stopping. The need is too great. One of our most valuable partners (MVP) said, “I hope this temporary setback does not dampen the amazing spirit of Doney Coe Pet Clinic.” No, it will not because during its 37-year history Doney Coe Pet Clinic has faced many challenges.
We always put the animals before anything else to live healthy lives, free from pain and with the human companions they love.
With warm regards and sincere gratitude,
President, Board of Directors
