Hess Pet Center now provides full-service

luxury pet care to do owners. Recently, we
have been inundated with requests from
current clients and from employees in Hess
Office Park to expand our services to cat
owners. Providing services to cat owners
has always been part of our long-range
business plan; therefore, we decided to
survey all of our clients and Hess Office Park

Some of our clients even sent pictures of

their dogs with cats that belonged to their
friends who want to use our services. Andy
is pictured below with his friend Choo.

Survey Results

First, we asked our current clients if they

had any objections to adding cats to the
facilities. WE are happy to report that there
were no objections. More than 20 percent
of Hess office Park employees indicated
that they needed services for cats.

Action Plan

We will begin immediately with a pilot

project that will include three types of
services for cats:

What was even more surprising were

responses from clients who only have dogs,
but who suggested many of their friends
would like to use our services for their cats.
Several sent pictures for their friends cats.
They all indicated we could publish their
names and pictures in our newsletter.

be a frequent boarder at Hess Pet Center.

Total professional care provided by

board-certified veterinarians and
highly trained technicians.

Boutique that provides one-stop
shopping to meet your cats needs
and desires.

The architects and construction team met

and agreed that we could finish an
expansion area of the new addition and
have a nice area to meet the demand for
accommodating cats. This expansion will
not impact the construction completion
dates. Space in the veterinary clinic and
the boutique is already available.

Unrestricted Budget
The Board reaffirmed at our last meeting that
faculty support is our top priority-followed by
scholarships, fellowships, and support for
academic units. The proposed budget targets
these priorities.
The budget cuts imposed on the College this
year make it imperative that we make funds

impact you have had on the quality of Wexmark
