Motorola Professional Two-Way Radio - Our campus is over 8 acres and radios are essential for staff to be able to communicate efficiently.
Motorola Multi Unit Charger Station - Our campus is spread out and our staff use radios to communicate throughout the work day. With so much use, batteries drain quickly. This charger will help ensure our staff is able to communicate at all times and meet the needs of our animals.
Gaymar Heating/Cooling T/Pump - Our clinic uses TPump Systems to keep animals warm during operating procedures.
HomeAgain Universal Worldscan Microchip Reader - Microchip scanners are used throughout the clinic and shelter to help get dogs and cats back to their owners.
Soma Technology Bair Hugger - Really needed for our clinic! The Bair Hugger helps keep animals warm and comfortable as they recover from surgery.
Amston Platform Veterinary Animal Digital Scale for Large Animals - Our veterinary clinic needs a new pet scale to manage and track animal body mass, which is particularly important when the team is caring for malnourished rescue animals.
UltraEdge Professional Animal Grooming Blade Clipper - As a high-volume shelter and clinic, our clippers get a lot of wear and tear and eventually wear out. These clippers are essential to both to prep animals for surgery and also to groom matted animals and increase their comfort and adoptability.
K-9 Dryer – Grooming is not only important an adoptable pet’s appearance, it’s important to their health. Severe matting can be extremely uncomfortable and can cause bacterial infections and other health problems. A heavy-duty dryer like this one will allow us to more efficiently dry pets.
Please note: Due to storage and safety, we are unable to accept cleaning chemicals.
Certain medical supplies can be accepted, but please call the Public Clinic to inquire as some restrictions apply (702-384-3333, ext. 904).
