Mountain View Humane, a low cost spay/neuter clinic located in Christiansburg, opened in August, 2010 to serve the needs of a population within a 60 mile radius of the facility. Knowing that being able to transport animals from areas outside Christiansburg was a key element in making an impact on the overpopulation of unwanted animals, the organization began presenting the case to automobile dealers hoping that one would step up and make a donation of a box truck. According to Executive Director Kelly Cass, “without a transport vehicle we could not reach the population who needs us most.”
Berglund Automotive responded to the need and the passion behind the cause and has made the contribution necessary to make transporting animals to the clinic a reality.
Mountain View Humane Board of Directors Vice President Barbara Dalhouse responded to the donation by saying, “We are thrilled with the very generous donation of a box truck from Berglund. They have always been very supportive of the community and this donation will help us provide spay/neuter services to a wider geographical area by being able to transport animals to the clinic.”
Transfer of the vehicle will officially take place on Friday, June 24, at 10:00 a.m. at Berglund Automotive offices, located at 1923 Williamson Rd. Transport services, affectionately called the Hip to Snip Trip, will be provided to the Roanoke/Salem area on the third Wednesday of each month.
