The Arizona Humane Society is going to help thousands of Valley pets and their owners with its new Healthy Tails Mobile Veterinary Clinic.
That is thanks to a $300,000 mobile veterinary unit from the Banfield Foundation. Through this clinic on wheels, about 6,000 additional pets in the community are expected to obtain affordable or free medical care every year. The Healthy Tails Mobile Veterinary Clinic is designed to help low-income pet parents around the Valley overcome barriers, including unreliable transportation and financial hardships, so their pets can keep receiving comprehensive medical care. Offering affordable veterinary services including vaccines and microchips, as well as tick, flea and preventative treatments and wellness exams in targeted areas will help keep pets and people together.
To try to create a self-sustaining model, the Humane Society will run the mobile clinic four days a week, with two days dedicated to affordable, fee-for-service and the other two days providing free services 24 weeks of the year.
