September and October 2017


GLOBAL:

A solo photography exhibit by Jeffrey Young

Dr. Jeffrey Young graduated from Colorado State University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1989.  He has served on numerous Humane Society boards and has been an advisor for mobile surgical units and high volume spay/neuter facilities in over 30 countries.   In 1990 he established Planned Pethood Plus, a Denver clinic best known for its low-cost mobile neutering services, Native American Reservation work, and training of veterinarians from around the world in more efficient surgical techniques.

He is an outspoken proponent of early age neutering for companion animal population control, driven by a simple underlying mission “to significantly reduce companion animal overpopulation throughout the world”. He firmly believes that veterinarians and NGOs need to work together on sustainable low cost healthcare for all companion animals.

Dr. Young also founded his own non-profit group, called Planned Pethood International (PPI), to help fund spay/neuter work and veterinary training from its locations in Bratislava, Slovakia; Merida, Mexico; Chelem, Mexico and Puerto Morelos, Mexico.

 This exhibit is a collection of some of Dr. Young’s favorite personal photography, taken between 1998 and 2017, both digital and 35mm film. All art sales will go to PPI   and North High School.
