One of the many foundations at Around The Bend Veterinary Services is providing honest and compassionate veterinary care to ALL of our patients and their families. We understand not only the emotional toll this takes but the financial toll too. We are honored to have many generous families that have wanted to do more in honor of their loved ones Dr. Jones has helped cross the Rainbow Bridge. We are proud to offer the Bosco’s Buddies Fund for pet owners who are not financially able to care for their pets in their last stage of life. Whether this be for hospice care and/or in-home euthanasia. The origin of euthanasia after all is “good death”. This fund is especially designed for but not limited to disabled veterans. The use of the fund is at the discretion of Dr. Jones and depending on the situation a consultation may be required. The fund is a great way to honor either a human or pet that you have lost.
History of the name
Most veterinary practice’s that have developed a fund to help patients is known as an “Angel Fund”. Since most donors to an “Angel Fund” are giving in memory of someone, we thought the name of our fund deserved to honor someone very special to Dr. Jones. Our fund is named after Dr. Jones’ chocolate lab, Bosco. Dr. Jones adopted Bosco while working in a veterinary practice prior to going to vet school. Bosco was born over Thanksgiving via c-section to which his mother did not make it. The handful of puppies were hand raised and Dr. Jones fell in love with Bosco and his little white stripe on his chest. Bosco and Dr. Jones were buddies from the beginning, rarely being apart from each other. Once accepted to vet school, Bosco also made that journey with Dr. Jones. He got to live the island life for a few years playing in the oceans, hiking and his all time favorite – chasing coconuts that people would throw for him. Wherever Dr. Jones was, Bosco was with her. By the time he was 10 years old, he had seen more of the country than most people. But as any of us who have pets know, the time does come to say our last good-bye to them. At 13.5 years old, Dr. Jones had to say good-bye to the dog she calls her “dog soul mate”. She vowed to speak of his story often. We could not think of a better way to honor him than to have him continue to help others.
