Ohio Shelter Outreach Open House

Great event for both pet owners and rescue groups! Save the date!

Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio, a nonprofit veterinary clinic dedicated to providing affordable, high quality spay and neuter services to shelters, rescues and low income families is launching its new clinic with a Community Outreach Open House.

The Open House will be held at the clinic at 691 East Dublin Granville Road, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, June 20, 2009. This event is open to the public and free of charge. Children will have the opportunity to learn what it means to adopt an animal by “adopting” a stuffed toy. They will then learn how to keep their pets healthy as a vet tech performs a health exam on the child’s new pet. Finally, children will be able to make a gift bag to take home to their dog or cat. Adults will have the opportunity to ask questions from the veterinary staff and pick up information brochures on a number of companion animal topics.

Anyone who is currently involved in the rescue community is also invited to come to the Open House, tour the clinic and learn more about how SOS of Ohio can assist them with their rescue efforts.

Shelter Outreach Services is open Tuesday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Appointments are necessary except for feral cats in traps. Any feral cat that arrives at the clinic by 3 p.m., will be spayed or neutered the same day. This open door policy allows caretakers to trap cats in the morning and still get them in the same day for surgery in order to reduce the stress of being trapped and handled.
