Ian Hughes Stokes Valley Vet
Support Ian Hughes, Stokes Valley Vet who after 34yrs of caring & rescuing animals can no longer work due to terminal illness.
This page is for Ian Hughes, Stokes Valley Vet. For the last 34 years he has cared for animals, treating and saving hundreds of birds, cats and dogs, kittens and puppies where most would have opted to have them put down and many a time an owner has requested that due to not being able to afford the treatment. He has performed countless surgeries and treatments at a cost to himself, offering credit to many so he can save these animals. Sadly many of the people he has helped have not paid their bills which has left them in difficulty. Five months ago Ian was diagnosed with terminal cancer and has not been able to work in his beloved clinic and with no income and a mass of outstanding debt, things are difficult for Ian and his wife Lorna. Ian has not asked for this page to be set up but is aware it has been done. If you are someone who has had a pet cared for by Ian over the years, or just simply someone who appreciates good human beings and animal lovers then please givealittle.
Victoria Roebuck's involvement (page creator)
I'm involved because Ian is my stepfather and for the last 34 years I have seen him save animals with compassion and care and need help to give back to him as he has done for others. They are currently struggling to make ends meet and cover all the things Ian needs for comfortable care which is why I have set up this page for them.
Use of funds
Funds raised will go to supporting Ian and Lorna Hughes and all or their animals they have through rescue and adoption, now that Ian is no longer able to work due to terminal illness, and Lorna unable to as she is his full time carer.
We just wanted to let you all know that after a hard fought battle with his cancer, Ian passed away last night (Feb 14). He was surrounded by Lorna, his family and beloved dog Jonah. Thank you again to all of you who so kindly donated on his page. Thanks to you Ian was comfortable right up until the end, and we treasure the messages from you all that documented his professional life so beautifully.
A service will be held on Monday 19th 2pm at Silverstream Retreat, 3 Reynolds Bach Drive, Stokes Valley, followed by private cremation.
Thank you again for all your support.
