Steve Boharski and April Weber-Boharski, both DVM alumni from WSU, have owned Garland Animal Clinic in Spokane, WA since 1999. In 2017, they started supporting Rabies Free Africa with a $1 donation for each rabies vaccine administered at the clinic.
Why is being involved with Rabies Free Africa important to you?
It is important for us to give back to help with health issues across the world. We are blessed in this country to be able to do incredible medicine, surgery and preventative care on our pets. Our pets get better health care than many people in the world. Giving something back to the Rabies Free Africa is a small part of what we can do to improve health care throughout the world for pets and people.
How is your clinic involved with the program?
We give a direct contribution monthly depending on the number of rabies vaccines we give in the clinic. Each invoice has a note that a portion of the fee will be contributed to Rabies Free Africa. This helps engage client also.
What do you do when you are not at the clinic?
I enjoy almost all things outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Spending time with my family at the lake, skiing, fly fishing, hiking, bird hunting and travelling.
Anything else you would like to share?
If each of us find a way to give a little back, we will make the world a better, safer, and healthier place. Giving time, talent or treasure lets each of us contribute in some way. Programs like Rabies Free Africa allow us to affect lives across the world.
