Dear Friend of Compassionate Care for Pets and People;
Dr. Greg Ogilvie here. It has been our privilege to support thousands of people by caring for pets for over a decade in Southern California while forging new discoveries that benefit animals and man. The role of companion animals in our lives are enormous. But we know that, like us, they are not immune to disease. In fact, we share vulnerability to many of the most threatening. I’m writing you today to ask for your support of our effort to enhance the quality of veterinary care- and care for people- worldwide. Here’s how.
The Special Care Foundation for Companion Animals (SCFCA) is a non-profit Foundation dedicated to the validation and deployment of medical breakthroughs that prevent/treat cancer and other diseases in pets and their owners. The Foundation, through a close relationship with industry, academia, biotech and the FDA, is ready to “fast-track” new treatments, preventative therapies and diagnostics as part of the process by which advancements are approved for human use.
The Foundation’s approach is unique in two important ways. Unlike “Contract Research Organizations” that use animals, SCFCA is a “Compassionate Care Organization” that only undertakes programs that improve Quality of Life while treating disease. Secondly- in exchange for the support granted medical companies, the Foundation will secure distribution rights assuring that advancements will be available for animals world-wide. Like the Paul Newman Foundation, SCFCA will receive contributions based on deployment so that it can focus on good works rather than fundraising.
Today, the Foundation does the important work of treating pets and supporting their families with novel, promising advances that are not found elsewhere. But, with your help, the Foundation can become a powerful instrument for good worldwide and for generations to come. I ask now for your immediate financial assistance to bridge the gap between the hope of today and the science of tomorrow. Your unrestricted donation will help fight cancer and other diseases that make us feel so helpless when they strike a loved one; whether that loved one is human or our companion animal “kid”. Please help us work to ensure that they are given every fighting chance.
With warm thanks,
Gregory Ogilvie, DVM
