FORT MILL TOWNSHIP — The Baxter Veterinary Clinic’s annual Angel Tree to benefit homeless pets returned this week.
The tree is set up in the lobby where ornaments are hung up with pictures of animals who need care.
“Each animal will have a specific need that people can donate money to so they can get the care they deserve,” said Dr. Kelly Baete, owner of Baxter Veterinary Clinic.
“This can include a rabies vaccination, a spay and nuder, or you can sponsor a pet, anything to get them help,” Baete said.
The Baxter Veterinary Clinic, located 1642 Hwy. 160 West, Suite 104 Fort Mill, teams up with the group Halfway There Rescue every year so they can get pets out of the shelter and adopted as soon as possible. Halfway There Rescue is located in Rock Hill and was founded in 2012 by Sarah Lewis. Since its opening, the rescue has helped find homes for more than 400 animals.
The clinic will have a fundraiser from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 14-15. Santa Claus will come and take pictures with your pet and part of the proceeds go toward the Halfway There Rescue.
The Angel Tree will be up all Christmas season ready for all donations.
