The Kentucky Humane Society provides a mobile veterinary clinic to Louisville communities

                The Kentucky Humane Society hosted its first mobile veterinary clinic on Tuesday, giving pet owners the opportunity to bring their pets for various healthcare services.  The clinic provided DA2PP and Bordetella vaccines for dogs, FVRCP for cats, and Rabies for both dogs and cats.  She also offered health and wellness checkups, flea and tick prevention, and dog and cat food.  They hope to be able to offer these services across the city in areas that need them, says Alyssa Gray, vice president of the Kentucky Humane Society.  "We're going to do car care at least twice a week going forward, and hopefully we'll continue to ramp that up and go all over Louisville," Gray said.  "We definitely want to target our lower income areas and be able to provide this service to pet owners in need."  Later, Gray adds, the clinic hopes to expand further into Kentucky to provide affordable care to rural areas in need.  The services provided at the clinic were made free on Tuesday, thanks to the patronage of District Council woman, Amy Holton Stewart.  This, she said, is a critical time to help provide additional care to citizens in her district.  “With the economy tightening on families, especially those with young children in childcare, and older adults on a steady income, I think pet care is one of the last things addressed in a family. So, it was important to me that We offer this free service for Zone 25 components.  The Kentucky Humane Society hopes to partner with more interested companies and individuals, to be able to offer cheaper services.  “The services provided are very low cost,” said Alyssa Gray of the Kentucky Humane Society.  “They can pick and choose what they want. Some pets already have a rabies vaccination, but they want to come in and get a low-cost nail clipper, and they can do that! It could be off a menu, and then some days it'll be free, it all depends.” You can find more details, including how to register your pet and find a location near you, here.
