Fifth Mobile Clinic
November 20, 2011
Our 5th and last clinic in Georgetown for the year was held Sunday, Nov. 20. This one was quite a challenge as the weather was cold and rainy and we were not certain if snow in Georgetown would prevent us getting the clinic up there. But luck prevailed, and the clinic and all our volunteers made it! The day was filled with surgeries for 13 dogs of all shapes and sizes, with two over 100 lbs.
This 5th clinic closes our first chapter of the PAWED mobile clinic providing low cost spay/neuter services in a targeted outlying community in the county. A total of 70 dogs were altered in these five clinics! We are very grateful for the dedication of the many PAWED volunteers who helped make these clinics a reality. A very special thanks to Dr. Randy Robinson, Ysabel Baca, RVT, Andrea Gavin, RVT, Tonya Ruffner, RVT, and Shannon Quinn, vet assistant who volunteered their time and veterinary expertise to perform the surgeries. And another special thanks to Jeff Lee, who drove the clinic back and forth and insured that everything in the clinic was in tip top working order! And we could not have conducted these clinics in Georgetown without the help of Kris Moore, Divide Humane Society, and the generous donation of the use of a portion of the Georgetown library for recovery of dogs by Andy and Cheryl Anderson.
PAWED looks forward to our second chapter, which we anticipate will be in the Spring 2012, after the winter weather has passed, in the Grizzly Flats/Somerset area. Stay tuned for further updates!
