Austin Veterinarian Provides Discount for Shelter Pets to Encourage Pet Adoptions

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - Dessau Veterinary Clinic in Austin, Texas announced that the animal clinic provides discounted services to local area rescue groups and adopted shelter animals. The discounted pet care services are part of the veterinary clinic's mission to encourage pet owners to adopt shelter pets rather than purchase animals from pet stores or puppy mills. In addition to promoting shelter pet adoptions, the veterinary clinic provides routine examinations, dental care, vaccinations, spay/neuter procedures, and emergency animal care.

Veterinarian Dr. Kellee K. Campbell announced that Dessau Veterinary Clinic in North Austin is providing discounted services to local area rescue groups and adopted shelter animals. The discounted veterinary services are part of the animal clinic's commitment to supporting local rescue shelters and encouraging the adoption of shelter pets.

"Every animal deserves a loving family. Sadly, our local Austin shelters are filled with wonderful pets in search of a forever home," said Dr. Campbell. "Rather than purchasing animals from a pet store or puppy mill, we want to encourage owners to adopt shelter pets. We know that routine pet care can be expensive, and a discount for veterinary services can really make a difference!"

Pre-approval is required in order to qualify for the shelter pet discount. Pet owners who have adopted their pets from a local Austin shelter can learn more about how to qualify by visiting the website for Dessau Veterinary Clinic at http://dessauvetclinic.com.

The veterinary team at Dessau Veterinary Clinic is passionate about helping shelter animals find loving homes and educating the public about the dangers of puppy mills. Individuals who wish to learn more about how to stop the cycle of puppy mills can visit the animal clinic's online adoption center and download educational information on the "Adoption Center" page.

"Many people do not realize just how terrible the living conditions are for pets trapped in puppy mills," said Dr. Susan Wage, a veterinarian with Dessau Veterinary Clinic. "There is a complete lack of sanitation and no access to compassionate care from a veterinarian. Every decision is driven by the singular goal of maximizing profit. By educating the public about puppy mills and providing affordable veterinary care for adopted pets, we hope more Austin families will open their homes to shelter animals -- we want to write a happy ending to these sad stories!"

Dessau Veterinary Clinic is a full-service animal hospital that provides routine wellness examinations, dental care, vaccinations, spay and neuter procedures and emergency animal care. The animal hospital has an in-house lab, in-house pharmacy, intensive care unit and radiology facilities.

Founded in 1985 by Dr. Campbell, Dessau Veterinary Clinic provides care for all breeds and sizes of dogs and cats. The North Austin veterinary clinic also provides dog grooming and dog boarding services for Austin, Round Rock and Pflugerville pets.
