“We support the right of all people, no matter their socio-economic status, to experience the love that exists between people and their pets. We believe that extending a hand of kindness to people in need by providing for their beloved pets will not only benefit them, but it will also benefit us all,” said Hanna Ekstrom, DVM for Seattle Veterinary Outreach (SVO).

SVO has been providing pet care services for everyone in the community at the St. Vincent de Paul Georgetown Food Bank since September of 2019.
