Free Dog Clinic


OVER BY SOMEBODY, THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT STORY. IT WOULDN’T HURT FOR THAT LONG. HOSTING A FREE CLINIC FOR PUPS. LIVE WITH HOW YOU CAN ATTEND. Reporter: THE CLINIC DOESN’T START TILL 11:00, BUT LOOK AT THIS LINE. DOZENS OF PEOPLE LINED UP WHEN WE ARRIVED TO GET INTO THIS CLINIC. OFFERING ALL TONS OF SERVICES TO SACRAMENTO COUNTY RESIDENTS. MICROCHIPPING FOLKS, SO WE WILL WALK OVER NOW. THEY’VE ALREADY STARTED PULLING PEOPLE OUT BECAUSE I’M SURE IT WILL GET QUITE BUSY. I WANTED TO TALK WITH CELESTE. YOU CAN TELL SHE’S VERY BUSY. I WAS JUST TELLING THEM ABOUT THE CLINIC HAPPENING TODAY. 11:00 TO 2:00. WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE SERVICES? THIS IS A PROGRAM OF THE SACRAMENTO ANIMAL ASSISTANCE TEAM. WE ARE OFFERING FREE VACCINES, MICROCHIPPING, DEWORMING, FLEA CONTROL, TREATMENT OF MINOR MEDICAL ISSUES, ENGRAVED ID TAGS JUST TO HELP LOW INCOME SACRAMENTO COUNTY PET OWNERS. WE ARE EXCITED TO BE DOING THIS. THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME HERE. USUALLY WE ARE IN VARIOUS OTHER AREAS BUT THE EMPHASIS IS ON LOW INCOME RESIDENTS. WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO ENCOURAGE THESE SERVICES FOR ANIMALS ESPECIALLY IN THIS DEMOGRAPHIC? A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE RESOURCES TO PROVIDE BASIC CARE FOR THEIR PETS. A LOT OF PETS AND UP SURRENDERED TO SHELTERS BECAUSE OF THAT. I DID WANT TO CHAT WITH ONE OF YOUR FIRST PEOPLE MARJORIE. I WANTED TO ASK HER A LITTLE BIT, DO YOU HAVE A SECOND? I KNOW YOU ARE SUPER BUSY BUT I WANTED TO CHAT WITH YOU. MARJORIE HAS SIX DOGS. SHE WAS THE FIRST AT THE LINE. CAN YOU TELL ME A LITTLE ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT OR HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT BEING ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE SERVICES? IT’S A GODSEND BECAUSE I’M ON A VERY SMALL SOCIAL SECURITY ONLY, NOT SSI, JUST A LITTLE SOCIAL SECURITY, AND IT HELPS ME. BECAUSE MY ANIMALS ARE MY LIFE, AND THESE SERVICES ARE ABSOLUTELY A GODSEND. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INPUT AND BRINGING THE PUPS HERE TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE HEALTHY AND TAKING CARE OF. YOU STILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME. EVERYTHING HAPPENING UNTIL 2:00 P.M. TODAY. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO ENCOURAGE FOLKS TO COME OUT? THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE RESOURCES FOR THESE BIGGER — BASIC SERVICES, COME VISIT US. WILL BE DOING ANOTHER CLINIC AT
