oUR oRGANIZATION HAS PROVIDED ASSISTANCE TO SOUTH PARK SINCE 2004
Since 2004, this organization has provided assistance to South Park companion and homeless pets: veterinary medical assistance, spay/neuter vouchers, well-pet maintenance, and emergency food assistance. We’ve assisted dogs, cats, mini horses, full size horses, burros, mules, llamas, rabbits, and goats. Last year, 2015, SPGSFA paid over $7,000 for veterinary medical assistance , and $5,500 for spay/neuter vouchers.
It started when a generous local family, concerned about local animal welfare, donated $500 to the Park County Animal Hospital in Fairplay, to be used exclusively for veterinary assistance for local animals. Kerry Madole, DVM, founder and former owner of PCAH, initiated the “Good Samaritan Fund” which later came to be known as the “South Park Good Samaritan Fund for Animals”. Many changes in South Park have taken place since 2004, including a change in ownership of PCAH. Jeremy Ickes, DVM, has become the new owner and manager and continues to work with and support the “Good Samaritan Fund”, along with Jamie Fiege, DVM. Amy Mason, DVM, provides veterinary treatment in the Guffey, CO, area. South Park is very fortunate to have excellent veterinary care.
