W. Jean Dodds, Hemopet President
Dear Friends of California dogs and cats, Dr. Jean Dodds tirelessly works to help pets all over the world, fighting ignorance and even answering emails from strangers in need in the middle of the night. You have likely read her articles here and all over the Internet. I hope you take her wonderful newsletter. Now she needs our help.
Her lab, Hemopet, is the canine equivalent of the Red Cross. The lab does low-cost titer testing, diagnostic work and food sensitivity scans. I have used all these services many times. My little Chiclet received blood from Hemopet when she was hospitalized. Now the California Board of Equalization is threatening her nonprofit status. I hope you’ll read what’s going on and help her as she has so many times helped our dogs.
Even a short letter of support will really help. We have to save her blood bank and diagnostic labs.
Jean has been told that letters should be addressed to Assemblymember Gonzalez but e-mailed to Charles Berman, her husband. (They have to collate them and FAX them directly to the Assembly person’s privatefFax to keep them from being lost in the incoming e-mail system there.)
Here are all the details: http://us3.campaign-archive2.com/?u=65fe703d8ce705ddce0e30120&id=c0a72d9157&e=a31788af9a
Time is of the essence. Please respond before August 3. Jean needs us and we need her.
