PAWS Chicago Receives Mobile Vet Clinic
Jul 11, 2023
PAWS Chicago has received a brand new state-of-the-art Mobile Vet Clinic – the city’s only vehicle devoted to providing preventive care and treatment to sick and injured animals in Chicago’s underserved neighborhoods.
The Mobile Vet Clinic will be introduced at a pair of community pet vaccination days on July 14 and 15 for residents of the Englewood, West Englewood, Woodlawn and Back of the Yards neighborhoods. During this event, the 19-foot vehicle will provide basic exams, preventive care – including flea and tick prevention – and vaccines for up to 300 dogs and cats. No appointments are necessary.
The vehicle will regularly conduct more exhaustive veterinary exams, provide preventive care and treat sick and injured animals in the Englewood, West Englewood, Woodlawn and Back of the Yards neighborhoods. Appointments will be necessary for these appointments, which will begin in August.
The community vaccination days will be held:
- Friday July 14, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Ogden Park, 6500 S. Racine Ave. No appointment necessary.
- Saturday, July 15, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sherman Park, 1301 W. 52nd St. No appointment necessary.
The Mobile Vet Clinic was generously donated by the Banfield Foundation.
