Caring for Cambodia
At Lakeway Vet Clinic, we offer a great dental deal—for some deserving kids and for your furry companion! We’ve joined forces with Caring for Cambodia, a grassroots organization headquartered in Austin, that provides education and basic healthcare for 6,700 children, from pre-K through 12th grade. Founder Jamie Amelio started the nonprofit 15 years ago, after vacationing in Cambodia and meeting a girl who asked her for $1 to pay school fees. Jamie visited the girl’s school, saw an overwhelming amount of need, came home and asked friends for help.
One of those friends was Lakeway’s own Dr. Rand Doyle, who became an enthusiastic supporter of Caring For Cambodia. Each February, Lakeway clients who bring in a new toothbrush and tube of toothpaste receive $60 off a pet cleaning. With your help, Lakeway collects over 9,000 toothbrushes for Caring for Cambodia each year. The nonprofit distributes about 25,000 toothbrushes annually, supplying students at their 21 schools, students’ families, and other community members.
We believe that all creatures have value, but some creatures get a tougher break. That’s why we do our best to help those who help others. We work with multiple animal rescues to help stretch the dollars they spend on veterinary services.
Lakeway Vet Clinic is a regular contributor to the Lake Travis Education Foundation. This grassroots nonprofit, founded by Lake Travis residents in 1985, has provided the Lake Travis Independent School District with over $3.75 million in program funding. We are also strong supporters and contributors to student organizations at Lake Travis High School.
We are proud to support the Lakeway Police Foundation and provide lifetime care for Orka, the first—and now retired— K-9 member of the Force.
