Charitable Organizations

The Farley Foundation

The Farley Foundation is a registered charity that assists Ontario residents by subsidizing the cost of necessary (non elective) veterinary care for people in need. The foundation provides for many groups in society and these include seniors in need, individuals with disabilities, women at risk of abuse and participants in the Ontario Works program. Founded in 2001 by the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, the OVMA has continued throughout the years to generously assist in the administration of the charity.

North Bay Animal Hospital is proud to be an active participant in fundraising for this valuable veterinary charity. We were awarded the Silver Friend of Farley Award in 2011 for raising almost $4000! Our fundraising efforts include our Annual Yard and Bake Sale for Farley held at our hospital each spring. Not only do we sell gently used items but we delight our clients with the culinary baking talents of our staff! During Fundraiser for Farley Month our doctors and staff also raise awareness and funds in our hospital during this important annual campaign every October. Two from our own veterinary team, Dr’s Rea and Ouellette raised $1500 through client and personal donations and cycled 100km in the Ride for Farley charity ride in mid September 2012.
