Whiskers and Wine to Benefit the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition

Whiskers and Wine Loudoun Community Cat Coalition Leesburg Veterinary Hospital

Leesburg Veterinary Hospital was proud to sponsor and take part in the “Whiskers and Wine” fundraising event at 8 Chains North Winery this past weekend.

This fun event brought together local veterinary and feline professionals, boutique vendors, and artists to help raise awareness and money for the Loudoun Community Cat Coalition – a local non-profit organization whose mission is to save the lives of our local feral cat communities through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs. Leesburg Veterinary Hospital has hosted several TNR clinics in the past and will be hosting LC3’s next clinic on Sunday December 10th.  You can read more about the impact these clinics have on our local cat communites here.

Several doctors and staff from LVH including Dr. Strickland and Dr. Dunn, Joanne Scott, Kimberly Shaffer, Kim Cupples, Chris Zimmerman, Amy Bosley, and Felicia Belcher took part in the event.  What better way to spend an Autumn Saturday in Loudoun County!

Loudoun Community Cat Coalition Wine and Whiskers Leesburg Vet LVH’s Front Desk Supervisor, Kim Cupples and Licensed Veterinary Technician Kimberly Shaffer did a presentation on the Fear Free Approach with cats.  Over the past year, our hospital has implemented both Fear Free protocols and has become certified as a Cat Friendly Practice.  Both programs help us create the most positive veterinary experiences for both pets and their owners.

Did you know, when LC3 goes out and traps cats to be spayed and neutered, kittens are often found.  LC3 needs volunteers to join their Kitten Rescue Team.  They provide the training, you provide the love, attention, and support needed until adoption.

LC3’s will be collecting items for the upcoming TNR clinic this Thursday November 16th at the Rust Library in Leesburg. This is a great way to get involved if volunteering or adopting is not an option.
