Final Healthy Pet Clinic of the spring is set for Sunday, June 24th in Syracuse
(Syracuse, NY) - The spring Healthy Pet Clinic on the north side of Syracuse returns to the campus of Assumption Church at St. Clare's Theatre on N. Salina Street on Sunday, June 24th from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. The spring Clinic's in April and May served some 180 dogs and cats of residents on Syracuse's north and east sides who were able to demonstrate financial need.
In May pet owners lined up hours before the doors officially opened. They patiently waited as the line wrapped around the St. Clare's Theatre building. More than 40 volunteers with the Central New York Animal Welfare Coalition, including some of the top veterinarians in the region, ran an efficient operation on a hot, sunny Sunday afternoon in May.
