Neumeister Animal Hospital has proudly contributed to organizations with special meaning to our family.
Dr. William C. Neumeister served as president of the Tuberculosis Society and initiated testing of students for tuberculosis, inspired to aid in the prevention of further deaths as four of his eight aunts and uncles died of TB by the time they were forty years old. Aunt Pauline spent some of her last days at Sunnycrest Sanatorium for tuberculosis, here in Dubuque.
Mary Helen Neumeister was one of the three women who initiated a program through the YWCA for battered women. She served on the board of directors and board of trustees for many years.
Dr. Neumeister sponsors the following dogs to help giving back to Dubuque residents who contribute(d) to our community.
