Spring Healthy Pet Clinics return to Syracuse's north side
(Syracuse, NY) - The volunteers of the Healthy Pet Clinics are preparing for the second year of helping animals at the Assumption Church campus on Syracuse's north side. On Sunday, April 7th the St. Clare's Theatre building will be turned into a makeshift veterinary center to bring veterinary care to animals who otherwise would go without.
This innovative program has served more than 1,000 animals over the last two years. Residents of the City of Syracuse's north and east sides who meet financial requirement will receive a low cost exam, vaccinations, flea and tick treatment and whatever other care the staff of volunteer veterinarians can offer.
