Everyone seems to appreciate the love and companionship of a furry friend, even the homeless. However, if a pet parent is homeless, that means so is the canine or feline and likely not getting the best care possible. Thousands of veterinarians from around the country will be in Denver from July 13 to 17 for the annual convention of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
On Sunday, July 15, some of those veterinarians will be volunteering their time to provide FREE medical care and other services to the pets of the homeless. The street clinic will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., outside the Colorado Convention Center’s Lobby B. It is being led by Fort Collins veterinarian Dr. Jon Geller, founder of the Street Dog Coalition. Please note that the services are only open to homeless pet parents.
