Dr. O'Connell Donates $250,000 to the CVHS Bring Us Home Campaign!

Michael J. O’Connell, MD, MHA and CEO of Paincare, Salmon Falls Family Healthcare and R.O.A.D. to a Better Life, has generously donated $250,000 to support Cocheco Valley Humane Society’s “Bring Us Home” capital campaign to build a new 11,000 square foot animal shelter that will be located on the grounds of the Strafford County complex in Dover. His leadership gift will name the surgical suite at the new facility.

Spotlight Pet: Williamina

Williamina is about 2 years old and came to CVHS as a stray. This gorgeous bunny has not had much experience being handled, so she would do best in a home with someone who is an experienced bunny owner and will take the time to help her learn to trust people. She has been enjoying spending time in her playpen at the shelter and would love a home where she has lots of space to run around. Are you able to help Williamina come out of her shell?
Age: 2 years Sex: SF
