The Marshall Medical Emergency Fund
The Marshall Medical Emergency Fund was created in September of 2008, in memory of Marshall, a 130-pound black Labrador retriever who was a canine volunteer with the CCSPCA Pet Visitation Program for nine years. Once a month Marshall visited patients at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Coatesville. After Marshall passed away, the Fund was created in his memory.
The fund is used to pay for emergency medical services for animals sheltered at the Chester County SPCA. The fund improves the quality of life for the animals in need of medical services, and improves their chances of adoption.
Some examples of the Marshall Fund in action:
- A dog who came to the shelter with a broken leg. The Marshall fund paid for the medical bills associated with saving the dog’s leg. He is completely healed and is now with a loving family.
- Another dog came to the shelter after being hit by a car. The Marshall Fund paid for the medical bills to save the dog’s life. The dog was in foster care while the healing, and has since been adopted.
- An elderly stray cat found his way to the shelter, but was dehydrated with severe weight loss. The Marshall Fund saved his life and luckily his owner was found and the cat is back home again!
- Another dog came to the shelter in need of heartworm treatment. The Marshall Fund saved his life and made a bright future possible for her.
