Healthy Pet Clinic Returns to St. Lucy's in Syracuse Sunday, October 9th
Sunday October 9th
The Healthy Pet Clinic sponsored by the CNY Animal Welfare Coalition returns to St. Lucy's Church Auditorium/Gym on Sunday, October 9th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. This is the second clinic offered this fall to serve pets who have owners with financial limitations in Syracuse's south and near west side neighborhoods.
The initial Healthy Pet Clinic in September served some 60 dogs and cats from approximately 40 households. Many of the owners of the animals expressed tremendous appreciation for the low cost care offered by the volunteer veterinarians and staff.
The Clinic requires pet owners bring identification, proof of address and something to verify financial need. Participants must reside in Syracuse's south and near west side neighborhoods. Dogs must be leashed and muzzled and cats brought in carriers. A donation of $10 per animal is requested.
The clinics provide veterinary exams and critical vaccinations to dogs and cats. In addition, veterinarians may offer flea and tick preventative, educational materials and determine eligibility for free or low cost spay or neuter.
The Clinic is the result of nearly a year of planning by numerous animal welfare groups aided by the Shamrock Animal Fund. Cornell University's Veterinary Hospital staff and students are assisting with the Clinics alongside several veterinarians from the Central New York region.
