Paws for a Cause…
WOW. Our first Street Dog Coalition clinic in Amarillo, Texas saw FORTY dogs and one cat at Faith City Mission. If you're a numbers person, you'll love this: In total, our vets and volunteers administered 33 rabies vaccinations, 40 DAPPV vaccinations, 1 FVRCP vaccination, 23 heart worm tests, 24 Iverheart Plus prescriptions, 38 deworming treatments, 4 other prescriptions, 18 nail trims, and 1 ear cleaning. At one point, when vaccines were running low, a colleague was called and more vaccines were delivered. Teamwork makes the dream work. MANY, MANY thanks to everyone who helped, especially Kim Nethery and Pat Chase!! Let's do it again.
Inclusive Health in Ithaca, NY
The Street Dog Coalition is passionate about an inclusive "one health" approach to street medicine, and our team in Ithaca, New York is a great example of this. When a local doctor was preparing to open the harm-reduction medical practice called "REACH Medical" to treat drug users, her daughters questioned who would provide veterinarian care for the pets of patients who may be experiencing homelessness.
