In 2005 when Dr. Sinclair started at Haw creek Animal Hospital, hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Dr. Sinclair wanted to find a way to help some of the animals that had been lost or abandoned in the storm's aftermath. We found an organization called Noah's wish who were doing that work and decided that we would open on Labor Day as a fundraiser to help them. Thus began an annual tradition, and since then we have opened each labor day as a benefit for a variety of local, national, and abroad animal rescue organizations.
This year we will use our Labor Day benefit to help the National Mill Dog Rescue. NMDR’s mission is to RESCUE, REHABILITATE and RE-HOME discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry.
We will be open our regular hours (until 11pm) and will donate at least 50% of our income to this effort.
