Panama City, FL –
PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) – Operation Spay Bay continues to help pet owners around the Panhandle, and now with a new addition to their fleet, they are also able to help people in outlying areas .
Their brand new mobile unit was funded by PetSmart Charities. They say this new vehicle will help them reach different pet owners everywhere and help them with their donation efforts this weekend.
The official unveiling of the new Spay Bay mobile clinic will take place on Saturday at Salty Dog Day in St. Andrews. Operation Spay Bay will perform mobile vaccinations from this vehicle.
“Our mobile clinic will be there at 7 am, we have a clinic from 7 am to 8 am for our seniors. These are people aged 60 and over. From 8 to 11, we will be offering a full service clinic. On the clinic side, we will also offer microchips and nail clippings. Microchips cost $ 15 and include lifetime registration, and nail clippings cost $ 10. Said Vet Tech Chief Maxine Cornette.
The group also takes donations for pet owners in need.
“Everyone needs dog food, cat food, kitty litter, leashes, bowls, everything. Don’t think that nothing is too small, ”said Cheryl Murphy, team member.
The mobile unit has multiple uses with the aim of serving residents of more rural communities, they expect the clinic on wheels to gain a few kilometers.
“It’s a fully mobile unit, capable of performing surgeries and vaccines. We’ll take this on the road. We weren’t keeping that here. We’re going to go into areas where it’s sometimes difficult for people to talk to us, so we’re coming to you. Murphy said.
It will also help the elderly population of Panhandle.
“A lot of people don’t have transportation. It will also help the elderly, the people who cannot, the closed, who cannot go out. We can come to them. And to make sure they can get the vets, the vaccines, that they probably couldn’t normally get. So that’s what it’s for. Murphy said.
At Salty Dog Day, they’ll also have four animal rescues on-site to help find homes forever.
All proceeds from Salted Dog Day will go to this non-profit organization. The festivities begin at 8 a.m. on Beck Avenue. Pet vaccines start at 7 a.m. for owners over 60.
