For veterinarians, World Spay Day is another opportunity to share what you know about spay/neuter surgery with your patients, raise awareness about spaying and neutering pets and possibly encourage owners with unaltered pets to have the surgery done.
Found Animals will be at Los Angeles City Hall next week to help Spay4LA promote their second mobile pet clinic. In a recent press release, the mobile clinic was described as a pet “hospital on wheels that will allow the organization to serve thousands of more pets in areas that desperately need access to affordable spay/neuter services.” Their current mobile clinic services the Los Angeles area “five days per week and alters more than 5,000 pets per year,” their website states.
The second mobile clinic will allow them to double that number, an effort Found Animals is pleased to be a part of.
The two organizations will be joined by L.A. City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr., ASPCA, Brenda Barnette, the General Manager of the Los Angeles Animal Services Department, and Erika Brunson, founder of the Coalition for Pets & Public Safety.
The World Spay Day event is not only about unveiling the new mobile clinic. It’s also a celebration of the decreased number of pets dropped off at a shelter and the diminishing number of euthanized cats and dogs.
The event will take place on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at Los Angeles City Hall, which is located at 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. It starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. If you’d like to hear the L.A. City Council’s presentation, it will be held at 10 a.m. Attendees will be able to tour the mobile pet clinic.
