A-PAL's Special Needs program
This fund for special needs animals and their owners was begun with A-PAL many years ago and has gone under many names such as Maddie's Fund, Santa Fund and now is named for John Liedl. John and his wife Mary came from the Bay Area for more than 10 years to support A-PAL with John playing our Santa for the annual Santa Paws fundraiser.
In 2009 just before the Christmas, John was told he had terminal pancreatic cancer, but he came again that year to be our Santa one last time. His family and friends responded with great generosity in his memory and this fund is now named after John and his generous and giving spirit towards the animals he loved.
This fund may be used for owned and unowned animals as follows:
This fund has assisted more than 120 animals through 2015. Procedures have included heart worm treatment, tumor removal, dental cleaning and extraction, orthopedic surgery, eye surgery and other life saving procedures. This fund is made possible by generous people who believe all life is precious and who want to support the animals and people with special needs.
