Spirit Medical Fund

SpiritA Caring Community Working Together

The SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND assists with needed medical care for stray, homeless and abandoned animals as well as victims of animal cruelty and neglect that arrive at Evansville Animal Care & Control.

The fund was established after a brave little dachshund mix, later named Spirit, survived a horrific ordeal of animal cruelty. 

Spirit was found at the Oak Hill Cemetery around Halloween 2000.  She had been doused with gasoline, set on fire, and left to die.

When found, she was close to death, and although she was in very poor health, she still had the will to live. In order for this to be possible, she needed costly medical treatments. 

The community reached out and provided us with the needed money. This was the beginning of the SPIRIT MEDICAL FUND.

You can make monetary donations by mailing your donation to the shelter or by bringing it in personally.
