Sparrow Hospital,Highland Hospital,Banner Hospital are all part of the “Cinderella of Animal Hospital” program, which helps families pay for pet care.
In a video posted Thursday on the “Good Morning America” website, an unnamed family described the effort.
The family’s cat was admitted to Sparrow, Highland and Banner in January.
The cat’s owner noticed a white squirrel eating a squirrel in the woods.
The squirrel was later euthanized, but the family’s cats were still receiving care at the three animal hospitals.
The families thanked the nonprofit, which operates a partnership with Animal Hospital in the state of Michigan, for their help.
The nonprofit also pays for the care of the cats and dogs.
“They’re all taken care of by people who are willing to give up the right to have cats, dogs, or any pets euthanased,” said Jennifer McNeill, Sparrow’s director of public affairs.
“This is a wonderful way to support the animals and our veterinarians.”
McNeill said that Sparrow also has a pet-rearing program that has a separate $20,000 fund for pets.
