Free vet clinic provides relief

“I’m so relieved.” That was the response from one of our Getting Ahead participants as she left last week’s free veterinary clinic with her dog, Sampson.

Thanks to our new friends at The Street Dog Coalition, Sampson and about 30 other pets got free medical care including any necessary shots, flea and ear mite treatments and preventatives like tick, fleas & heartworms… all for free!

There were a couple pups who also had cuts or skin infections checked out and went home with some free medications. Pet food was passed out too!

This was our first partnership with Street Dog and we’re looking forward to being able to host more vet clinics to help more struggling families keep their pets healthy.

Thanks Street Dog!

    I would love to be informed when you have your next free veterinary clinic. i have 3 dogs and it is very hard to afford care for them.
    Thank you

      So sorry Lucy, we just saw your comment. These clinics are only offered to families who are in our Getting Ahead or Cupboard Ally programs right now. If you need free dog or cat food, we may be able to help depending on what we have donated. We’d also highly recommend calling our friends at the Humane Society of Union County — they offer a low-cost wellness clinic as well as low-cost spay & neuter services. 704-283-9126
