Dr. Ken Fletcher Honored With Animal Welfare Award

OVMA Newsletter 2004

award.gifHonors this year were bestowed upon Dr. Ken Fletcher, Albany, for demonstrating outstanding professionalism, compassion and dedication with respect to the care and treatment of animals in a volunteer capacity.

You might say that Dr. Fletcher practices volunteerism full time and when he has a moment or two left in the day he practices veterinary medicine. This is stretching reality some, but it is an indication of his dedication as a volunteer.

For starters, Dr. Fletcher works with the City of Albany Police Department in regard to abandoned or sick animals, and he assists animal control--at no cost. As a solo practitioner, he continues to be active with the Chintinimi Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, where for the past seven years he has routinely provided veterinary care for and his assistance with the animals. He also is a member of their board of directors. And since 1996, Dr. Fletcher has found homes for more then 600 dogs and cats--and most often after he has given them necessary medical care and surgical attention at his own expense.

Testimonial

  • "You guys are the nicest people. After we had to put my cat whiskers down you sent us a condolence card. Then when my dog ate grapes you took her in and saved her life. Even going so far as to give me a glass of water and putting a note on my account to never put me in the same room that I last saw my cat alive after I had a panic attack from just looking at the door. Thank you guys so much for taking great care of my pets."
