Creekside Animal Clinic in Vernon was presented with the 2015 Veterinarian of the Year Award by the BC SPCA at the society’s annual awards ceremony held in Richmond on May 2.
A strong supporter of the BC SPCA’s Vernon and District Branch for many years, the clinic consistently offers a high level of service for injured and sick animals in the SPCA’s care while providing significant discounts to ensure that as many animals as possible receive the life-saving care they need. Dr. Murray Flock, Dr. Brian McOnie and their team also generously assist the branch through support for local SPCA events, including gold-level sponsorship of the Scotiabank & BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk in Vernon for the past four years.
“I am constantly amazed and humbled by the outstanding staff, volunteers, partners, supporters and others who help us help the province’s most vulnerable animals,” says BC SPCA chief executive officer Craig Daniell. “It’s extraordinary to have such impressive support and this year’s awards recipients lead by example and showcase all the reasons why our work is so rewarding.”
The clinic is also committed to promoting high levels of animal welfare in the community. In 2014, Creekside hosted the first-ever spay/neuter blitz days offered by the Vernon SPCA, reserving two days to spay and neuter animals belonging to low-income families. The program was so successful it was held again this year.
The dedication and support of Dr. McOnie, Dr. Flock and the staff at Creekside Animal Clinic has been instrumental in helping to save the lives of hundreds of abused and neglected animals in Vernon and in helping to reduce the suffering caused by pet overpopulation in the region.
