One of the most significant highlights of this year’s Tails on the Town is the “Fund an Item” initiative, which focuses on providing essential veterinary care for pets in need. With just a $60 contribution per animal, MCHA can offer a comprehensive range of health and nutrition services, including parasite prevention, life-saving vaccinations, diagnostic tests, spay/neuter surgeries, medications, and food assistance. What’s more, every dollar donated to the “Fund an Item” initiative will be generously matched up to $20,000 by an anonymous donor, effectively doubling the impact of your contribution.

“MCHA’s nonprofit veterinary clinic stands as a lifeline for countless pets in Monroe County, many of whom have no other options for vital care and desperately need our help,” emphasizes Andrew Krebbs, Executive Director at MCHA. “By providing essential veterinary services and support, we not only save lives but also offer crucial assistance to pets and their families facing extremely challenging circumstances. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors whose generous support makes our work possible, and to the dedicated members of the event committee for their tireless efforts in organizing this year’s Tails on the Town.”

The success of Tails on the Town wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. MCHA extends its heartfelt gratitude to this year’s sponsors, including Bailey Weiler, The Dog House, German American Bank, Scout’s Honor, Commercial Services, Slotegraaf Niehoff, Smithville, IU Credit Union, City of Bloomington–Office of the Mayor, College Mall Veterinary Hospital, Forthphaze Technology, Andrew Krebbs, Erika Oliphant, Bloom Magazine, Monster Digital Marketing, and Oliver Winery.
