Another Step Forward

It took a long time for Doney Coe to get our clinic up and running several days a week in order to be able to accommodate more pets AND their people. It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year. But change happens and the current location will be redeveloped and Doney Coe will be finding a new space for their clinics. There is still a huge need for help for pets of unhoused and low income people, and for their people too. There will NOT be any interruption in services, and you’ll be able to get updates on as things move forward. We sill will need our volunteers, donors, and all of you who have played a huge part in getting Doney Coe and our services to where they are so far. The work continues, the mission continues, and we’ll keep you posted on everything so you all can follow progress.

Help from Some of the Best

This episode of Team Doney Coe—Helping Pets and their People—speaks to the importance of the support received from the Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine, definitely recognized as “one of the best”, and Dean Dori Borjesson. We hear a little from president of the board of directors, Marti Casey, and then feature a conversation between radio host Paul Casey and Dean Dori from WSU. The programs at WSU have provided help for Doney Coe via internships and have also helped spread awareness for what Doney Coe has done, and is doing, in the community. Thank you to our WSU partners for impacting our work in such a positive way.

The Best of Doney Coe from 2022

In this episode of Team Doney Coe—Helping Pets and Their People, we have selected segments from interviews that took place during 2022, highlighting such things as the importance of continuity of care, that smart and sensitive care means more and better care, and that triage and emergency care and equipment are important to the ongoing quality of care—the more we serve, the more need we have for equipment and for volunteers with veterinary experience. Thanks to President of the Board of Directors Marti Casey, Dr. Laura and Janna whose work supports Doney Coe, and Dr. Cherri Trusheim whose work also supports Doney Coe. Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who made amazing things possible in 2022. We look forward to helping more pets and their people in 2023.

Happy Holidays, Safe Holidays

This episode of Team Doney Coe—Helping Pets and Their People—features a conversation with president of the board of directors Marti Casey discussing some of the many ways we can help keep our pets safer during the holidays. We talk about avoiding dangerous foods AND a list of some of those foods (raisins, chocolate for example), how to best keep your pets calm and out of potential danger if you have guests in your home, and a host of other helpful topics. Many troubles occur simply because people are not aware of what dangers lurk in and out of the home and what to do to avoid them. Knowledge is SO important and Marti shares a LOT of information in our conversation. You can also find more details at –please check it out.

When You Have Been There

Team Doney Coe is out in the community helping pets AND their people and thanks to the many donors and volunteers the efforts and results are growing every day. In this episode we hear an introduction from the President of the Board of Directors, Marti Casey—to a remarkable woman who is now part of the Doney Coe Team—Amanda Richer. And then we have a conversation with Amanda herself.

Amanda is right there in the trenches with the pets AND their people, and—she has also been there herself, down on her luck and unhoused. She is now a full fledged member of Team Doney Coe and is also on numerous panels and committees addressing homelessness, health and compassion for our fellow humans . It’s wonderful to have her as part of the Doney Coe Team. When you have been there, you bring a different perspective and new ways to understand and help.


This episode features a heartfelt dialogue between Dr. Laura Kreyenhagen, DVM, and Janna O’Connor, LVT. Both are dedicated professionals who also dedicate volunteer hours to Doney Coe. They discuss from the “front lines” how things are going with the new setup (10 clinics per month instead of 2), how this is helping pets and their people at an even higher level, donations that have helped immensely, and items that are still needed. The changes over the last 2 months have resulted in many more pets, and people, being seen, and this is lifting spirits and saving lives. Thanks to the many donors who have been supporting this ongoing effort and new donors and volunteers are always welcome. For more information please visit

The Doctor is IN

This episode of “Team Doney Coe—Helping Pets and their People” features Sarah Vanston, MD, site medical director for Neighborcare Health’s Pike Place Market clinic and Housing and Street Outreach programs. Dr. Sarah is instrumental in helping with the “people” part of “pets and their people” as now pet parents can receive behavioral and physical health support through Team Doney Coe.

So often people who are struggling will take care of their pets first, but at their own expense. This part of Team Doney Coe’s program is meant to insure that people are also getting the help and support they need. In helping people be better and be well it is helping pets too.

It has been wonderful to watch the growth of Doney Coe’s outreach and see it continue to benefit more and more people and pets in our community. And we are glad “The Doctor is IN”.
