Wish List Items


Ultrasound With Probes
We are in need of a portable ultrasound with probes for medical here. Our vet can use when here as many times theirs is out on trucks and not available. It allows us also to ultrasound and send to the vet before coming here as well as utilize for teaching medical.

Skid Steer
We are in need of a skid steer to allow us access to areas that need cleaned ie: shelters where a tractor can not reach. This allows us also to move and transport things with pallet forks.

Portable Xray
We are in need of a portable X-ray machine. It allows not only our vet to use when many times their X-ray is out on calls and not available but we can shoot films and send over to the vet before arrival. With staff here able to do this it saves on time and vet bills with being able to pre send these images over to the vet and continue to teach medical here.
