TWINSBURG, Ohio – The Humane Society of Summit County is working to make veterinary care more accessible to low-income residents with a new, state-of-the-art mobile veterinary clinic that will provide high-quality sterilizations and nests, vaccinations and a microchip.
The humanitarian company said the need for affordable and accessible pet care is increasing. Each month, the center received more than 50 calls per month from residents seeking veterinary care, more than half of which were specific to low-cost sterilization and sterilization services.
The mobile clinic will provide low cost services and a fund has been established to provide free services to neighbors who otherwise could not afford them.
The mobile clinic can accommodate up to 25 cats or small dogs. The vehicle has the capacity for hospitality, preparation for surgery, anesthesia and air conditioning so that services can be provided year round.
“We are delighted to offer this resource to our community of pet owners. The need has never been greater. Combined with other programs that the Humane Society of Summit County offers to help both homeless pets and owners, we are creating a continuum of services that ensure a safer, more animal-friendly community, ”said Diane Johnson-Owens, President and CEO of the Humane Society. .
The vehicle will circulate in Summit County, focusing on low-income areas to provide pet care.
