Another successful wellness clinic!

We are very happy to report that our 2016 Wellness Clinic in Saik’uz (northern BC) was a big success! On May 7 and 8, Spirit’s Mission volunteers along with our veterinary partners, Dr. Sylvia Hall Andrews from Petroglyph Animal Hospital and Dr. Cori Stephen from Nechako Valley Animal Health Services, provided local pet dogs and cats with health checks and preventative health care, including vaccinations and deworming. Over the course of the two days we treated 37 dogs and 14 cats!

Grooming was also popular this year, with Vicki “Clippers” McDonald giving four lucky dogs a much needed makeover.

Additionally, we took in two dogs and two cats and will be working with our rescue partners Crooked Leg Ranch and the Victoria Humane Society to find them new forever homes.

We’d like to give a special thank you to the Lakes Animal Friendship Society for helping out with the humane education component of the weekend, as well as to Pilots n Paws for their assistance.

Finally, we’d like to recognize all of the hard-working and generous people who came together to make this clinic a success – the people and volunteers in Saik’uz, the Spirit’s Mission volunteers at the clinic and those working behind the scenes, and our generous donors and funders. On behalf of the animals, thank you!
