Cornwall, ON (July 5, 2019) – The Ontario SPCA and Humane Society will be bringing its new SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services unit to Cornwall next week for a two-day spay/neuter clinic to help reduce local pet overpopulation.
The 38-foot trailer, which was made possible because of a grant provided by the Pet Valu family of stores through its Giving Back Project, features two surgical tables where 20-30 spay/neuter procedures can be performed per day. The new mobile unit is part of the Ontario SPCA’s ongoing efforts to control pet overpopulation and help build relationships with pet owners and their local veterinarian.
After completing a two-day spay/neuter clinic in Cornwall on July 9-10, the trailer will be rolling into communities across the province, reaching underserved areas to provide spay/neuter surgeries, wellness exams, microchipping and vaccinations.
“We are excited to be in the community of Cornwall to help address the issue of pet overpopulation,” says Daryl Vaillancourt, Chief, Humane Programs & Community Outreach, Ontario SPCA and Humane Society. “This mobile unit is a high-volume operation that allows us to spay or neuter a large number of animals in a short period of time to reduce the number of unwanted animals who end up homeless on the streets.”
Watch for the SPCA Mobile Animal Wellness Services at these upcoming locations:
July 23-24 – Brockville
Aug 16-17 – Peterborough
