Impact Report FY 2019-2020

Dear Friends,

I hope that this email finds you well. For months, the news has been dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and for many Texans, life has been turned upside down; many of us have experienced profound changes in our personal and professional lives. Against this chaotic backdrop, TVMF continues to provide programs that positively impact the lives of Texans and their animal companions.

Many of the senior neighbors we serve through the LEAP program live alone, which makes social distancing especially isolating for them. Now more than ever, their animal companions are vital providers of daily love, comfort, and companionship. To protect the health of this vulnerable population, veterinary visits this spring were limited to urgent needs only. Working closely with our partners, we have gradually begun scheduling wellness visits again, with the top priority always being the health and safety of the seniors we serve.

I hope that you enjoy reading about our shared achievements (click on photo below). This past year has been a year of great change and unprecedented challenges. Throughout it all, I have been humbled by the generosity of our donors and volunteers. Your support has made our success possible, and we remain deeply thankful. I look forward to continuing our journey together to help Texans and their pets, and I can’t wait to see what our next year will bring.

Chad Harris, DVM
TVMF President
