Kentucky Humane Society Provides Mobile Veterinary Clinic to Louisville Communities


The Kentucky Humane Society held its first-ever mobile veterinary clinic on Tuesday, offering pet owners the opportunity to bring their pet in for various health services. The clinic provided vaccines against DA2PP and Bordetella for dogs, FVRCP for cats and against rabies for dogs and cats. It also provided wellness checkups, flea and tick prevention products, and dog and cat food. Alisa Gray, vice president of outreach for the Kentucky Humane Society, says they hope to be able to provide these services citywide in areas that need them. “We’ll be doing the care-a-van at least twice a week going forward, and we hope to continue to increase that and drive around Louisville,” Gray said. “We definitely want to target our low income areas and be able to offer this service to pet owners in need.” Later, Gray adds, the clinic hopes to expand further into Kentucky to bring affordable care to rural areas in need. Services provided at the clinic were offered free of charge on Tuesday, thanks to the sponsorship of District Councilor Amy Holton Stewart. She said this is a critical time to help provide additional care for citizens in her district. “As the economy tightens on families, especially families with young children in daycare, and seniors on fixed incomes, I think pet care is one of the last things going on. address a household, so it was important to me that we provide this free service to constituents in District 25,” she said. The Kentucky Humane Society hopes to partner with more businesses and individuals who are interested, so they can provide services at a lower cost. “The services provided are at a very low cost,” said Alisa Gray of the Kentucky Humane Society. “They can choose whatever they want. Some animals are already vaccinated against rabies, but they want to come and get a cheap nail clipper, which they can do! It can be a la carte, and then on certain days will be free, it depends.” You can find more details, including how you can register your pet and find a location near you, here.
