We first wrote about Dr. Kristen Vance, owner of Homeward Bound Mobile Vet Clinic out of Bel Air, Maryland, for our blog in 2012. At the time, Vance had partnered with the local shelters for the “Senior Pets for Seniors,” program, in which, with the help of grant dollars, she utilized her mobile capabilities to bring no-cost veterinary services directly to senior citizens who adopt pets.

Fast forward five years, and she tells La Boit that business has been great. “I’m limited by hours in the day, not clients I can obtain,” she writes. Read more »

January 4, 2017 | La Boit Specialty Vehicles | Bloodmobile, Client Spotlight | No Comments | Tags: , ,

La Boit Specialty Vehicles’ client LifeShare Blood Centers was recently honored for the design work on their new 2016 La Boit-built bloodmobile. The 42ft Freightliner is the sixth La boit vehicle in their fleet. It includes four donor beds and all the equipment necessary to see dozens of donors per day.

The graphics on the bloodmobile are part of the “Beyond the Donation” campaign, in which both the truck and accompanying billboards featured two individuals who needed blood in a facility serviced by LifeShare Blood Centers.
