Thanks to a generous grant from Petco Love, we held our first community clinic that was open to the public in August, serving the residents of East Oakland. The clinic was a tremendous success, with 103 pets receiving medical treatment from our veterinary staff and 12 animals receiving spay/neuter surgery, all at no cost. In addition, pet food and supplies such as microchips, collars, leashes, and tags were provided to pet guardians.
Veterinary treatment included vaccinations, flea medication, microchips, and veterinary exams. Pet guardians with un-spayed/un-neutered pets were able to sign up for free spay/neuter surgery, and almost 50 pets were signed up! These surgeries will be performed by our veterinary staff at the shelter over the next few weeks.
