Humane Society of Manatee County Veterinary Clinic Expansion of Services
Sharing exciting news about Humane Society of Manatee County Veterinary Clinic’s expansion of clinic services is a labor of love. Our expansion of services coincides with increased demand in our community for high quality, low-to-moderate cost veterinary services. Our goal is to provide veterinary care for all cats and dogs in our community, including animals in families facing financial challenges.
Humane Society of Manatee County was selected late in 2017 to participate in The Patterson Foundation funded Margin & Mission Ignition business planning initiative. Humane Society of Manatee County developed our business plan to strengthen the entrepreneurial capacity and heighten our nonprofit mission impact through earned-income strategy and implementation. The business plan is aligned with our Mission Statement as well as Humane Society of Manatee County’s Strategic Plan. Goals for increased earned income / revenue over the next three (3) years are currently projected at an average of 15% increase each year through 2020. Clinic support medical staffing has increased and a training program was implemented and completed.
The business plan details the expansion of services currently being offered at the Humane Society of Manatee County Veterinary Clinic and includes additional services not currently available at the clinic. Increasing spay and neuter capacity by 20%, growing wellness and preventative services by 25%, and expanding our client base by 20% will remain the primary focus. Spay and neuter surgeries are up +949 surgeries October 2017 – July 2018 VS prior year numbers, this represents a 17% increase.
The veterinarian team has expanded and as of August 2018 three (3) full-time staff veterinarians are providing medical care for 13,500 animals a year. Dr. Lindsay Rollend, Wellness Director has been joined by Dr. Ashley Gillett, Shelter Adjunct Veterinarian and Dr. Ann-Marie Roche joined our team in August of this year and is our primary surgeon.
Humane Society of Manatee County Veterinary Clinic’s expansion of clinic services is helping to meet the needs of the community’s animal population. Providing expanded high quality, low-to-moderate cost veterinary care is meeting a growing and critical need in our community. The expansion of services and staff also benefits our shelter animal’s quality of care and allows additional medically challenged animals to enter the Second Chance Adoption Program.
