Second spring Healthy Pet Clinic set for May 20th on Syracuse's north side
(Syracuse, NY) - The spring Healthy Pet Clinic on the north side of Syracuse returns to the campus of Assumption Church at St. Clare's Theatre on N. Salina Street on Sunday, May 20th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The initial Clinic of the 2012 spring season served nearly 70 dogs and cats of residents on Syracuse's north and east sides who were able to demonstrate financial need.
More than 40 volunteers with the Central New York Animal Welfare Coalition, including some of the top veterinarians in the region, ran an efficient operation on a sunny and breezy Sunday afternoon in April. Pet owners were lined up hours before the doors open, but everyone was served.

The City of Syracuse clerk’s office will be on site to license dogs for an additional fee of $10 for fixed dogs and $20 for dogs not fixed. Cash only accepted.
The Onondaga County Health Department is supporting the Clinics by maintaining records of rabies vaccinations and supplying rabies tags.
