The Simba Fund
The Simba fund was created in loving memory of Simba Roth. Simba was a beloved member of a local family who passed away when he was 19 years old. Simba's generous owner started this fund to help with the cost of lifesaving procedures for stray animals and for those animals whose owners have extenuating circumstances or limited resources. Any donations to this fund are greatly appreciated. Also, financial applications are available upon request at Castle Peak Vet Service's Eagle office.

The following is a letter from one of our clients who bennefited from the SIMBA fund. Dr.s Denny and McPherron, I must start this letter with an apology. This letter should have been written a long time ago. I would like you both to know that Zora is showing no signs or symptoms that she had a shattered front leg, so thanks to both of you. I'd like to share our story to bring an awareness to pet owners of the SIMBA program. This fund was set up and is ran by Dr. McPherron. This is basically a scholarship fund set up to help per owners who have an unexpected injury, and cannot afford the full cost of surgery for their pets. Back in February 2010, our thirteen year old was taking our Doberman, Zora, out to potty. She took off on him and ran across the street to the park. She was around 1 1/2 years old and has a lot of puppy left in her. My Son, Isiah proceeded after calling and calling but Zora wouldn't stop. After about fifteen minutes, she found herself in a horse pasture with two horses. She ran up to one of them and spooked it. Suddenly one of them kicked back and caught our Doby in the right leg. She was hurled 10 to 12 feet. Needless to say, when we got there she wasn't moving. Isiah, not thinking of his own safety, ran to be at her side. Eventually, with the help of the Sherriff's Dept. and Animal Control, she was moved onto a sheet of plywood and transported to Dr. Denny's office. This all occurred on a Sunday and Dr. Denny had no reservation on meeting us at the office. Dr. Denny has been a vet here in Eagle County for many years. He has seena lot over the years and he specifically told us that this was one of the worst breaks he had seen, it was like someone had dropped a light bulb. At this poin, for financial reasons, I was willing to put the dog down. Little did I know, that my wife and two boys out voted me, and despite the $3,700.00 vet bill, said we would find a way. Dr. Denny informed us about the SIMBA program, we filled out financial paperwork and within three days we had an answer. There is no way that any of this would have been possible without the financial help from Dr. Denny and Dr. McPherron and the SIMBA program. I encourage any pet owner out there that has a pet in the same situation, please check into this wonderful program. A sincere thank you to everyone that was involved in the AMAZING recovery of our Doberman, Zora. She is fully recovered and you would never know that anything ever happened to that leg.
