A loan helped a nonprofit animal clinic furnish their surgical suite to provide care to disadvantaged communities.


Breona's story

I have been a veterinary technician for eleven years, with the last two years spent managing hospitals. Throughout my career, I've worked in a variety of facilities, ranging from rural shelters, non-profit clinics, animal rescues, and for-profit practices. My recent time spent working in the for-profit world reminded me of my humble roots, working for non-profit organizations. My most notable position was as a Medical Field Specialist for the ASPCA's Field Investigations and Response Team; the work heavily dealt with rescuing and rehabilitating animals seized in federal dogfighting, cruelty, neglect, and hoarding cases.

For the majority of my career, I only saw one side of veterinary medicine: treatment. But as a Practice Manager, I learned the ins and outs of inventory management and price-setting. The amount of money that we paid for supplies, versus the amount of money that we charged for supplies, were cripplingly different numbers-- one would say that that is the nature of capitalism. I did my job and I did it well but seeing people priced out of care for their animals hurt. Seeing animals go without basic necessities, like vaccines; discomfort going untreated; seeing animals euthanized because it was more financially accessible than treatment all quickly wore me down. I created Kitticcino Charities to give animals, and their families, a second chance.
