Vet Help Vets in Lee NHHomeless Veterans is everyone’s need to help. In Lee My wife and I, followed the rules as the building inspector (BI) came to the property with police escort to stop my cutting trees with out a permit in Lee NH. I told the BI about the Veteran Resort-Chapel non-profit and how it was to help homeless Veterans get back on their feet and asked to work with him to get it right. I am an ordained Minister since 1980 when I finished the courses. I have used that education over the years to talk with and help homeless Veterans, children of deployed Military and families on a daily basis. The Chapel is not a tax dodge because the non-profit would get the tax break anyway and the property was put in the VRC name because there is no self-gain for my wife and I. After I informed the Lee BI of our use of Compost toilets he told us that we needed approved septic design before we could even cut trees on the property. Knowing what the Lee BI was saying was wrong, just to play the game and keep the town happy I spent $2500.00 with all the fees and expenses to get a State approved Septic design. I ask for a driveway permit and the Lee BI, the Road agent and the Planning board member across the street place the entrance at 101 Stepping Stone Rd right in the middle of the septic design. I tell them that but they tell me this is where it has to go. To get started at the VRC expense I put the driveway in the wrong spot. I cut the trees and stump the lot with the volunteer help of Rick Stevens and dig a foundation hole. At this time I had to put the driveway in the proper place according to the measurements on the State approve septic design. The planning board neighbor went ballistic. The Lee BI then informs me that I cannot get a permit without going in front of the Site Review Committee. The VRC attends three site review meetings and each time they delay and ask for more expensive tests of prints. The VRC attends a Lee Selectmen’s meeting and explains the run around, delays and wasted costs to stop this VRC by the Lee Town officials. The Lee Selectmen turn a blind eye to what I am saying and dismiss the VRC, as it appears one of the selectmen lives on Stepping Stone Rd. The one comment that rings in my ears is when the Lee BI and the Kevin Crawford the Planning board neighbor asked “how you going to keep those type out”. My answer was and will always be “These are US Military Veterans that became those type because of what they did for you; I will treat everyone of them equal”.On May 29 (unless they delay it again) there is a ZBA meeting to correct these government wrongs where Lee NH is putting all efforts forward to doom the homeless US Military Veteran. We as a nation should be outraged that any person would go to such lengths to harm anyone. To have the trusted Town of Lee NH officials so openly doing it but claiming they care about the welfare of US Military Veterans is actions that can never be tolerated. One must ask if the State government officials are aware of these wrongs why have they not even spoken to the public to stop these wrongs.Chris Sununu and Maggie Hansen do your job and speak publicly.Peter Macdonald Sgt USMC Semper Fi465 Packers falls Rd Lee NH 03824 603-781-3839
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
