Donn W. Griffith, DVM passed away in August 2020 from complications of progressive supranuclear palsy(PSP). Dr. Donn was an avid photographer & fisherman and a lifelong lover of animals. He was a well-known and respected veterinarian who showed repeatedly just how much he cared about the wellbeing of all types of animals.
“Each February for several years, Donn loved volunteering his time and efforts, his hospital, and his staff to provide spay and neuter surgeries for the puppies who were accepted into the Pilot Dog Program. This program, growing and still operating in Central Ohio, gives extensive training to suitable dogs and places them with people who are blind or visually impaired, to be their guides and best buddies. In addition to performing the spay and neuter surgeries, Donn met with the people who were entrusted with these special dogs, to give them a head-start on how to create a healthy and loving home for their new pets.
I enjoyed accompanying Donn on some of the visits to Pilot Dogs. I experienced his caring demeanor as he met with the people who were beginning an important relationship with dogs who would provide security and significant help in navigating through the challenges of everyday life without benefit of eyesight. He considered it a humbling privilege to care for these loving and working dogs.”
