Pro-Bone-O is Lane County’s only non-profit that is solely dedicated to providing free veterinary services, food and supplies for the pets of people who are homeless in our community. In 1998, Eugene veterinarian Dr. Doreen Hock of Pacifica Veterinary Services and Lyn Gilman-Garrick, her office manager, founded Pro-Bone-O to fill an unmet need in our community – veterinary care for the companion animals of Lane County’s homeless population. Through their work, they met people who, for a variety of reasons, could not afford veterinary care for the pets who brought them love, security and a sense of purpose. Their three goals remain our mission today.
Pro-Bone-O operates two free clinics per month in a space generously provided by the Community Veterinary Center. Each volunteer-run clinic provides medical exams, vaccinations, flea treatments, nail trims, food and referrals to spay/neuter or emergency medical procedures for our community’s most deserving pets.
